It is tough to be sure, however I would be concerned about the possibility of a peptic ulcer, that may have been related to the increased dose of advil / ibuprofen consumed during the suicide attempts.
It would need a diagnosis to be confirmed by an endoscopy to be very sure though.
Reflux maybe an added problem in such a situation,
