Avatar f tn If you're vomiting up blood on any occasion, run not walk to your doctor or nearest health clinic. This may be an emergency! (or at least a sign of cancer) Vomiting blood on any occasion is a serious concern (especially with the variables you express). There should be free services available for your area to check out. Here's some things to look up: http://www.mayoclinic.
Avatar m tn Were you able to discuss the immediate cause of death with her doctors? Vomiting blood may be attributed to bleeding somewhere in the upper GI tract such as the stomach, mouth, throat, esophagus, and the first part of the small intestine. Blood that is vomited may come from any one of these places. With hepatitis B, possible complications include liver cancer, liver failure, cirrhosis, as well as esophageal varices that can bleed. This could be a factor in the vomiting of blood.

Avatar n tn I was at the hospital 4 or 5 times, never admitted. Each time the recommendation was observation and rehydration, no diagnosis ever. Blood work, urine, stool, all normal. No other symptoms made it difficult to assess as well. We then decided to go to Germany (homeland, i live in asia) for a vacation and diagnosis. I was petrified with fear because i thought i would vomit and be sick for the 24 hour total journey.
Avatar m tn Headache, confusion, memory loss, dizziness, nausea vomiting, slurred speech and fatigue are common. Delayed symptoms include depression, irritability, sleep disturbances, seizures, loss of smell etc. A doctor generally looks for focal neurological or generalized neurological symptoms that would show there is a pressure on brain somewhere. In absence of these symptoms and based on the history a diagnosis of concussion is given.
Avatar n tn In February 2014, I suffered a thorough flu like fever which gave me chills and made me feel like vomiting though I did not vomit. I also remember being nauseated easily and sweating at night and feeling better in the morning. I was rushed to the hospital and no diagnosis could be made even with a blood test sample. They alleged it could be some cold or change of environment. Subsequently since last year, I have been having this itchy and rashes on my body. Recently too pimple has joined in.
Avatar n tn He had been sick with coughing and vomiting for nine days prior to his death. He was seen by a pediatrician three times in those nine days and we were told he had a virus and an ear infection. Two hours after a visit to his pediatrician, he fell or passed out (no one witnessed it) and immediately started having breathing problems. He became very cyanotic and his eyes rolled back in his head. We called 911. Upon arrival at the ER, he was found to have pneumonia and acute sinusitis.
Avatar m tn My 7 year old dachshund recently ate what is thought to have been a coclebur or small pine cone. At the time we had no idea she had done any of this until we noticed vomiting and lethargy. We took her to the vet who ran a blood panel and all bloodwork was normal. She was sent home on some meds but nothing helped an the next day she was back and ordered an xray which showed some sort of object in the intestine and needed immediate surgery.

Avatar n tn He did and matter-of-factly suggested lyphoma to be the cause and told me not to worry as most people survive lymhomas. He also referredme to an oncologist whom I saw day before yesterday. The oncologist drew blood and my CBC was totally normal. He also stated that swollen lymph nodes in the back could be other things besides lyphoma and said that even if it was lyphoma, it was treatable. I have had none of the typical symptoms that go along with lymphoma, i.e.
Avatar n tn I couldn't have done it without them. The last day of Noah's life here on earth he started vomiting blood. Not huge amounts like I had been told but as the evening turned to dawn there was no rest in between. I was lying beside him ever so gentle in his bed when morning birds started to sing, Noah turned to me and said, Hey Beck? I think we're out of time and and you were the best part of the show. Then he was gone. Easy, peaceful.

495384 tn?1212180369 to people with severe crushing chest pain, convinced they are having a heart attack...to severe headaches, nausea, vomiting, dizziness (another very common one)....you name it. Look at the symptom list. It's long and growing by the day. You CAN fight this and break the cycle. It's not the easiest thing in the world to do...but it is 100% possible. Educate yourself on the disorder as well...
Avatar n tn Hello all When I was about 18 months old I had a 'gangrenous bowell', I had what I believe was a piece of dead skin wrapped around my bowell and I was ill to the point of near death, because of this I had surgery which removed a portion of my bowell. Ever since I have intermittently suffered from agonising stomach cramps, vomiting, and constipation. The scar from my operation is half an inch above my belly-button.
Avatar n tn The classic description for this condition is several episodes of retching or vomiting of nonbloody material that is followed by the vomiting of blood. Parenthetically, severe vomiting can have serious medical consequences. It is possible to rupture the esophagus. This condition is called Boerhave syndrome. Boerhave was a Dutch ( I beleive) admiral who was a glutton and used to induce vomiting so that he could eat and drink more.

432097 tn?1318552340 Anyway, the other night, I threw up so violently that blood started pouring out of both nostrils! Scared me half to death! Now, I don't know what to think. Did I rupture something, and should I even bring this up to my doctor? I don't have high blood pressure, so that's out. But I'm sure if I would have burst anything, the bleeding wouldn't have eventually stopped, right? I don't know, I need someone's advice here, thanks.
Avatar f tn Mon night I ended up in ER due to constant vomiting of blood. Now this is what ER md explained to me. My being stage 4 with a geno type 3a , the condition which can make my liver decompisates. I get that I guess what is confusing to me is that he said as a result sometimes the blood vessels will "become weak " . Has any one heard of this ? They put me on an anti nausia med zofran.Any help would be accepted. At this point I am starting to wonder why??
