Thank you for the quick reply.
Bleeding in upper gastrointestinal tract (mouth, esophagus, stomach and upper small intestine) from peptic ulcers or torn blood vessels is a common cause of vomiting blood.The medical term for vomiting blood (bloody vomit) is hematemesis.
The symptoms your husband is having of vomiting once or twice a week since last one month can be due to various causes.Common causes are: inflammation, infection,Esophagitis (inflammation of the esophagus),gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining)& peptic ulcer is the most common cause of this.
Less probable causes are:Emotional stress (fear),gall bladder diseases,meningitis, or other psychological illnesses.
He has no fever, no weight loss.This does not seem to be stomach cancer or anything serious or dangerous.
He need following tests:
- Gastroscopy or EGD(Esophagogastroduodenoscopy),
- Barium studies,other blood tests.
Gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining) or peptic ulcer seems to be the most probable cause.
So my best advise for you is to make an appointment with gastro doctor to have these tests done so as to confirm the exact underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.
Till then give him syp. Pepto-Bismol 2tsf thrice a day after meals and tab meclizine hydrochloride(brand name: Dramamine).Both these are available as over the counter (OTC)without a prescription & will help him greatly in treating this symptoms of vomiting.
Hope this helped
