Avatar n tn The doctor gave her a proton pump inhibitor one week ago but today and tonight she has still been continually vomiting this clear liquid.

She had some red blood at one point but no coffee grounds. Her bowels are opening okay although her stools are bigger than usual. Her urinalysis is normal.

My problem over these past two years has been Vicodin due to my mother's death.....self-medicating not to feel the overwhelming grief. I am currently tapering off of them.

Avatar m tn It's not terrible, but it is. (sorry if that makes no sense) How much blood was he vomiting up? And also, was the coughing severe or just every now and then. Depending on the case, he could have just made his throat very raw, which resulted in bleeding. This would also not be helped by the vomiting of stomach acid. However, he could also be coughing because of rising acid in his stomach.

Avatar f tn Gallbladder issues will cause stomach pain, but significant symptoms include vomiting that looks like coffee grounds as well as black, tarry stools.

These days a doc can't use the excuse that 'you're too young.' There is no such thing.
