Where in your abdomen is the pain?

Is the pain associated with eating?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
its like cramps from a period but worst and around that area of menstrual cramps no dont think its the eating at least that does not trigger the pain its just all of the sudden

Thank you for the information.

I am not entirely sure what the cause of your red vomiting and stool was, or if it was even blood. The rule of thumb is that if there is bleeding in the upper GI tract area (stomach) then you can vomit blood, but the stool would be black. If there is bleeding from the lower GI tract (colon, hemorrhoids) then the stool would have red blood in it.

The pain that you are describing does not sound like an Ulcer.

I suggest that you see your doctor and consider a GI consult for an Endoscopy and colonoscopy to look for the cause of the possible bleeding.

I hope this was helpful! If so, please click on the green ACCEPT button.

Good Luck and Best Wishes!

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
