Varicose veins in stomach lining

Common Questions and Answers about Varicose veins in stomach lining


Avatar n tn An endoscopy and colonoscopy revealed bleeding from veins. Several sores were in the stomach and one in the colon. They were cauterized but when checked a year later, the sores were again bleeding. The doctor said the condition must be hereditary because blood tests didn't show kidney or liver disease. I cannot find any medical information on this condition, whatsoever.
Avatar n tn My first liver doc told me the more I knew the better off I'd be so I spend a lot of time doing independent research trying to figure these things out. Also weakening of the veins and capillaries in the extremities is pretty common with aging regardless of health.So for those of you that are older. Yup for you it may just be a part of the aging process.Never hurts to stick your hand in the docs face and go oi! For me avoiding planes and eating better seems to have worked mostly.
Avatar n tn After much thought and analysis, I'm leaning towards the idea that the bleeding is caused by tears in the lining of the urethra and that the tears are caused by the skin stretching very tight during an erection. That and/or blood vessels rupturing because of high blood pressure during an erection. This would explain why the bleeding stops after the ejaculation: IMO, the blood in the urine is only residual blood (mixed with semen) that got pushed into the bladder during ejaculation.
469720 tn?1388149949 March is DVT (Deep Venous Thromboses) awareness month. A time to educate and inform the public about the risk factors, prevention, identification and treatment of this preventable and potentially fatal process. DVT, simply put, is a blood clot that develops in a deep vein of the body. The most harmful consequence of the development of DVT is that pieces of the clot can break off and migrate to the heart or lungs causing acute difficulty breathing and overwhelming stress on the heart.
Avatar f tn As I am sure you know, throwing up blood can be a sign of a serious medical problem. Alcohol can cause an irritation of the stomach lining known as gastritis. This can cause bleeding. Additionally binge and chronic drinking can cause damage to the liver. This can lead to damage to the blood vessels in you esophagus which are essentially like varicose veins. This can be a medical emergency. Your doctor can examine you and run any necessary tests to determine what is causing you to bleed.
Avatar f tn A condition in which fragile, abnormal blood vessels lead to bleeding. Peptic ulcers . An open sore in the lining of the stomach or duodenum, the upper end of the small intestine. Many peptic ulcers are caused by infection with a bacterium called Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). Long-term use or high doses of anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen can also cause ulcers. Polyps or cancer . Polyps are benign growths that can grow, bleed, and become cancerous.
Avatar n tn Hi, The kind of pain you are describing can be due to venous stasis or vascular compromise. It can also be due to varicose vein. Pain in night in calves while sleeping can also be due to Restless Leg Syndrome. I think you should consult initially PCP and discuss regarding further management and further reference to surgeon for evaluation of venous stasis in legs. A Doppler study of your legs will help in diagnosing the condition. Keep me posted. Bye.
1408746 tn?1283678948 [1][2] The name derives from the fact that, in the sagittal view, the SMA and AA (with some imagination) appear to be a nutcracker crushing a nut (the renal vein). I was originally Diagnosed with Pelvic Congestion after complaining for many years of Chronic pelvic pain, left sided flank pain, lower back, and lower limbs. My husband and I were also trying to conceive for 6 years and all the doctors could tell me was that I had a great looking uterus.
Avatar f tn Important note that you should take to heart. Like in my case, if your veins are in this kind of shape, you may have an undiagnosed nutrition absorption issue, so seriously consider taking a good multiple vitamin with minerals (NOT A TABLET that's encased it what might as well be plastic), also activated B-complex and amino acid complete wouldn't hurt, either.
Avatar m tn Gastric varices are swollen veins in the lining of the stomach. Swollen veins in the esophagus or stomach resemble the varicose veins that some people have in their legs. Because the veins in the esophagus are so close to the surface of the esophagus, swollen veins in this location can rupture and cause dangerous bleeding. Esophageal varices almost always occur in people who have cirrhosis of the liver. Cirrhosis causes scarring of the liver, which slows the flow of blood through the liver.
695915 tn?1228669552 Infarct disease is arterial supply side disease and leads to hypoxia in the tissues. I joked about varicose veins, but that is one of the most common forms of venous pooling. CCSVI is a venous outflow issue that causes pooling in the post capillary zone. Infarct causing TM is the equivalent of a stroke in the cord. It is an arterial event. You can infarct other major nerves outside the CNS in a similar way. If you infarct the brain, you don't get demyelination, you get TIAs or Strokes.
Avatar n tn tenderness in the base of the stomach discomfort in the middle of the stomach extending to the right side of the chest sometimes the entire chest feels like a rock grating up and down in the stomach sometimes locking or tightening of the chest
Avatar n tn As a young child I grow up with constant stomach aches and as soon as I ate food I would belt over in pain. At the age of 12 after a biopsy I was diagnosed with a Pancreatic cyst in my Duodenum. The cyst was non cancerious and left in my Duodenum and thats where treatment ended for this diagnoses. Starting around age 5 or 6 yrs old I began getting dibilitating migraine headaches that continued into my adulthood.
Avatar n tn Gastrointestinal causes of chest pain include reflux (acid from the stomach washing back into the esophagus), gallstones, esophageal spasm, esophageal rupture, varicose veins of the esophagus, strictures of the esophagus, tumors of the esophagus and other less common GI problems. Pulmonary (lung) causes include pneumonia, pulmonary embolus, pneumothorax, pleuritis and bleb rupture.
Avatar n tn Make sure you get sonograms. Many times you could have tearing in the lining of the intestines and/or hernias that bleed out into the vaginal canal from the hyst. surgery. NO doctor would ever tell you that because that would be med mal. Get either an MRI of your abdomen or a sonogram or get to a general surgeon and start complaining of the bleeding. That is a surgeon's job to clean up the bloody ordeals, right? Otherwise we are all just sitting ducks?
Avatar n tn On March 7th I am scheduled to have a partial hysterectomy removing my uterus. My doctor told me that I would not have anymore periods and that I would not be able to get pregnant. What is messed up in my case is that I am having this surgery because of another doctor's mess up when I had my son two years ago through C-section.
Avatar n tn its frustrating when ppl tell you its all in your head......when your pulse is so strong in your body that it wakes you out of a deep sleep... If you have never had it, you do NOT know what you are talking about!

298579 tn?1192250448 I mentioned it to my doctor over a year ago and he said it’s probably a muscle in my stomach. (He pretty much blew me off and it made me mad!) I just took that and let it go. For the last few months, I’ve been doing google searches on the symptoms and haven’t been able to find anything. Yesterday, during arousal, I started cramping so bad that I had to go sit on the toilet to try to relieve the pressure. That was it and I called my ob/gyn and they invited me to come in today.
Avatar n tn Pain in the artery can probably be relieved with 800mg of Vit E a day since it takes the pain out of my varicose veins--each day. Two 1000mg tabs of Vit C with each meal (Linus Paulings study) with help with inflamation urinary problems and aging. EDTA is a compably inexpensive way to clear the blood vessels throughout the body of plaque and heavy metals by tying them up and excreting them from the body. They claim it only takes a few weeks with the liquid and a few months with the oral pills.
Avatar n tn Remember not to over do the Iron supplements because it can deposite like crystals in our veins and cappilaries and cause tearing therefore bleeding internally. My e-mail address is ***@**** Don't forget that God helps!
Avatar n tn Each day she slept more and more (personally, I think this is the 'warning' sign but we had no clue at the time). Her doctor told me in the hall (her stomach was enlarged) that it wouldn't be 'long'. I thought, 'we've been told that before...six years you never know". She was taking morphine, but not too much. She was up with us, laughing, coherent. She slept a slept a little more than usual, but who could blame her? We had no idea she would be gone in a week.
Avatar n tn I know exactly what you're talking about, it's an intense shooting pain that starts in my crotch and moves up toward my stomach. It never lasts too long and I don't think it comes and goes in connection with my cycle. One time it was so strong I actually jumped and the person across the table from me just thought I was having some kind of episode. I have also noticed heavier and more painful (crampy) than normal periods.

Avatar n tn Hi I m a 28 year old and suffer some degree of ED in recent. I start masturbated since I m 19 and usually use porn as a form of visual stimiulation. I have observed that I have lost the ability to maintain erect during intercource or I only get weak erection. My question is: does masturbation in association with porn will "exhaust" my interest towards sex and create a negative impact on my ability to get aroused in real sex?
