Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.

As per your description,I strongly advise you to visit ER ASAP.

It can be caused by violent wretching--this can cause tearing in the esophagus.

Other possible differential diagnosis may include peptic ulcers,bleeding veins called esophageal varices.

Whatever the cause of bleeding is, the most important thing is to locate the source of bleeding, and fix it on emergency basis rather than wait and try home remedies.

Visit emergency room.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
