Coughing Up Blood Vomiting And Chest Pain?
I have a partner he used to take drugs and drink but now it stops. Now what I want to ask is that he used to vomit blood then if he coughs like to complain of chest pain. What is that disease.
Good evening, thanks for the question
If the blood in question is blackish then it is likely caused by injury to the gastric mucosa because alcohol is an irritative substance that can damage the stomach wall. If vomiting is in the form of fresh red blood, it must be suspected to originate from rupture of blood vessels in the esophagus.
The condition is classified as severe because it is associated with liver disorders due to chronic alcohol consumption. Alcoholic liver disease can be in the form of acute (alcoholic hepatitis) or chronic liver disease (fatty liver and cirrhosis of the liver). The severity and chances of recovery depend on the amount consumed, the duration of alcohol consumption, nutritional status, conditions of previous liver inflammation, and genetic predisposition. Fatty liver is still classified as a mild condition, whereas cirrhosis of the liver is associated with a high mortality rate which in later stages shows symptoms of massive blood vomiting.
Alcohol has absolutely no benefit for the body, and long-term consumption will greatly affect the health and quality of life of the sufferer himself. Therefore it is strongly recommended to stop these bad habits and start to live healthy without alcohol, smoking, start eating healthy foods and exercise regularly.
If complaints tend to recur or persist, do further consultation with a specialist in internal medicine for adequate evaluation and treatment.
That's all, hope you can help
