    :s: go and see a doctor! make an appointment as soon as you can, could be serious, this should not be happening....
    well, uh is it coughing up (like the blood coming out of your lungs? ~ very serious I would think)
    or throwing up (coming from your stomach?)
    I mean, both could be serious, but well... just go and see a doctor as soon as you can!

    Type your symptoms into Google and see what it says. You could also try NHS Direct. When it comes to medical stuff, I don't know anything. From what you've decribed though, it does sound serious and you should see your doctor ASAP.

    Don't type your symptoms into google, go and see a person. Google always worries me, and it's much better seeing someone who can assess you personally rather than pop up websites with matching words that might not even be legit.

    I've had a problem with panic attacks over the last year where I throw up and then bring up blood afterwards. I was worried so I saw my Doctor, it turns out it's just damage from being sick (yuck) but my blood loss is nowhere near a pint. I have a friend who throws up blood who has a liver disorder, I know someone who threw up blood due to an allergic reaction. My point is, it could be a symptom of lots of different things. Try not to worry for now, but see a Doctor as soon as possible and they can treat you for you. As much as people on here will want to help, we can't.

    I'm shocked that ur vomiting blood and u think the best course of action (maybe even after waiting 3 days) is to start a rather casual thread, rather than to see a doctor. I'm not a very medically person, but i don't see how liver damage would cause u to vomit blood. It could be a variety of things to do with ur stomach tho.
    See a doctor. Take a book to read in the queue

    you dont throw up blood with pulmonary oedema or infact most in that long list.
    Two major causes are from a bleeding ulcer in the stomach/duodenum, or from oesphogeal varices (which themselves are invariably from drinking, but take YEARS to develop).

    If the poster is genuine, and not some muppet who keeps throwing up last nights strawberry 20-20/cherryade pop, then he aught seek quick medical attention, or suffer the consequences.
