Avatar f tn the doctors aren't really worried about it unless it looks like coffee grounds. If it's bright red it might be an ulcer...
10869131 tn?1430202096 Well i didnt go to the hospital because it wasnt a whole lot and it didnt continue the next day i figured it was from throwing up too much since iv been throwing up everyday and iv never thrown up so much before i will be talking to my doctor about it. It was red not black. I appreciate all of your comments and concerns thank you!
Avatar f tn Also, you probably know but blood in your stool looks like coffee grounds, they say. If it's red blood/tissue then it's usually hemerroids or rarely other things but coffee grounds is bleeding in your digestive system for sure. I hope you get checked out! At least call the Dr.'s office (if they have an emergency/after hours service) and find out if you should go in.
Avatar f tn Oh that can't be good. I drank a lot, the point of no return for me is when I took a huge gulp of pure vodka that I thought was mixed. After that things got pretty crazy, it was really fun, but sooo not worth the hangover. I'm sort of bulemic so maybe that has something to do with it? My dad's a general surgeon so if I can't figure it out online I'll just have to ask him. I can't imagine it being too bad being just a one time thing and all.
Avatar m tn If you are vomiting something that looks like coffee grounds than you need to see your doctor. Old blood looks like coffee grounds so you need to see someone.
Avatar n tn I have ulcers and have been throwing up a lot of acid and what looks like coffee grounds. There is also bright red blood in my stools. I'm loosing a lot of weight.
Avatar n tn There is a company named NeuroScience that does an in depth work up. It looks like it would be worth it to just have some peace of mind. I don't work for NeuroScience but work for a Physical Rehabilitation Practitioner who relays heavily on this company. Insurance companies don't pay for this but I found it has been benificial to many of our patients. If in fact, you have high toxic levels I would suggest you look into Chelation.
Avatar f tn Oops definitely not Grantham lol idk how that even happened.
643805 tn?1243972443 I am alarmed at the vomiting having blood and mucus too. You aren't throwing up anything that looks like stool or coffee grinds are you?
Avatar f tn While a week later I was throwing up and it looked like coffee grounds. I went to the E.R. right then and they addimted me to hositpal. When I was in there I had an IV and fuilds through it and the doctor order me npo=nothing by mouth. It was that way for 2 days, and doctor also had me drink a colon prep (1 gallon of liquid) and it worked somewhat. I was released on saturday. I went in on thur. After that They said all test were normal, so doctor sent me home.
1743553 tn?1311216325 When the ulcers bleed it can cause bloody vomit...or vomit that looks like coffee grounds. They will probably do a upper GI scope. THis is where they put a little camera down your esophagus to look at it and your stomach. They may take tissue samples, but this will help them better understand what they're dealing with. THey will probably reccomend you take an acid reducer such as Nexium. You may have to stop drinking alcohol for a while until you are better. Good luck!
1072053 tn?1255441962 It processes and changes it - it becomes black and tar-like or it looks like coffee grounds. It is not red and bloody. And things can be going on in your colon despite your age. These days a doc can't use the excuse that 'you're too young.' There is no such thing. Children and kids get inflammatory bowel disease and that produces blood - the lining bleeds and that does produce red blood. Stool does not pass through the stomach, so maybe I'm mis-reading what you wrote.
Avatar m tn Just make sure to B line it to the ER if you see her throwing up copious amounts of blood or her bowel looks like coffee grounds or black tar. My menstruation disappeared completely for more than a year. Just came back 4 months ago!
Avatar m tn I would exercise all day, eat nothing, and eat a huge meal at night/then puke it back up. It was a tough time that lasted for about 3 months or so, but i eventually moved on. I noticed that on my first week of recovery, i had some odd digestive symptoms that i had noticed somewhat even when i was throwing all my food up. Anyways, i would eat 3 normal meals a day, but it was VERY hard.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar n tn I have no experience with H but I do know vomiting blood whether it is dryish and looks like coffee grounds, skoal chewing tobacco is not good at all and if you are throwing up large amounts of blood that is still blood red would be something I would see a doctor about.
Avatar n tn that is, emesis (vomit) that is dark and looks like coffee grounds or stool that looks the same way. So again, see your doctor and go from there. And by all means, relax. Prayer is always good if you are a believer. Take one day at a time... and be healthy... J.C.I.
Avatar m tn vomit that looks like coffee grounds; weight loss; yellowing of eyes or skin. ---------------------- Well, that's it folks. I gues one should think twice about taking Telaprevir.
Avatar n tn I think once I do that, I may be able to re-introduce some foods that I like (e.g. coffee, cookies) in very small levels again. I'm giving myself about 6 months before attempting that however. Another thing the book points out is that humans are the only mammals on earth which drink milk after they are weened from it by their mothers. I never really stopped and thought about that, but it's true. There are no other creatures on earth which go around stealing breast milk and drinking it.
Avatar n tn It got so bad in my house that when I steam cleaned, the canister looked like I had dumped cans of coffee grounds it. I kept steam cleaning until the 4th time the steam cleaner became so clogged that it stopped working. Don't waste your money on things like DE or fleabusters as these things require for the bug to be activly crawling around in your carpet. These things are sedentary and do not move except to jump on you when you pass by. These things jump.
Avatar m tn I've never noticed my heartrate changing like that. When my heart speeds up or slows down, it's always gradual (sometimes gradually-fast in an instantly stressful moment) but never instant. And after I fully awake from the feeling, I will put my hand on my heart. It will be beating fast, but at the speed it beats at when I am in an anxiety-inducing situation (such as this) and not at the insanely fast speed I felt during the trembling experience.
343765 tn?1202526132 I made some typo's because my mind is on my funky beats. Forgive me. I hope that you can make out the words that I botched up. Sorry.
Avatar n tn Call 911 or go an emergency room right away if you throw up blood or anything that looks like coffee grounds; if you feel faint, chilly, or sweaty; if you have black or bloody stools, or if you feel lightheadness, as if you would faint. See a doctor right away if you have sharp back pain with ulcer symptoms. _____ Symptoms : Frequent burning pain in the upper abdomen or chest, possibly accompanied by a sour taste in the mouth, a lump in the throat, or trouble swallowing.
Avatar n tn I returned for a follow-up (fasting) blood test a little over a month later which indicated that my thyroid was now within healthy, functioning range due to taking Levoxyl, which my doctor had started me on at the previous visit. Good. However, my iron level and saturation percentage were even lower than before! They had decreased dramatically (and rapidly). The normal range for iron in blood is 25-170 mcg/DL. Mine had gone from 49 in late January, to 36 as of early March.
Avatar n tn I'm 55 yrs old and had several episodes of this problem last year, each lasting several weeks. Seems to clear up of its own accord but now its back and I'd like to find a way to speed up its departure. As others have said it is a very specific smell of exhaust fumes ... extremely acrid at times to the point where it can make my eyes water. Horrible when I go to eat something and get a whiff of exhaust as I put the food in my mouth.
Avatar m tn It may not seem like it's good now, but you know that deep-down, life is AWESOME and it makes you smile a little bit knowing that you will once again believe that. Little self-pep-talks like that should help a little. Like I said before, there is no magic phrase to alleviate this ****. But maybe this type of positive thinking will help some people. It is helping me a little bit by typing it, so maybe it can help you. 6) Cut caffeine out of your daily routine.
Avatar f tn she hasn't in the past 7 years had or done anything that has helped. It is like she has completely given up on it ever becoming a possibility. Hi Rose! I know exactly what you are talking about. I haven't been able to even go past the apartment that my father last lived in before his passing and I total relate to avoidance of a food or situation because of panic or a bad experience. Thanks for responding.
Avatar n tn well i was staying worried and aggravated over the way i was feeling and my blood pressure went up and now im on meds for that. My doctor seems to think it has something to do with my blood pressure, but i know it dont. This started way before my blood pre went up. Its just the craziest feeling, i feel like my head is just shacking and like my brain is gonna bust. It gets worse at night time when i lay down. I have trouble going 2 sleep.
