Hiccups For A Week Are Accompanied By Constant Belching And Vomiting Of Blood?
, my husband hiccupped for a week along with continuous belching. Until last night, suddenly vomited blood. Why is that?
Vomiting blood or hematemesis is a condition where there is blood when someone vomits something. This bleeding comes from the upper digestive tract such as the stomach and esophagus but can also come from nose bleeds that have entered the esophagus. Some conditions that can cause vomiting of blood include:
Gastric ulcers, ulcers in the stomach can be caused by painkillers and bacterial infection. Acute gastritis or inflammation of the stomach Esophagitis, inflammation of the esophagus due to increased stomach acid etc. But don't worry too much, visit the doctor or hospital immediately to get the right treatment. The doctor will perform a physical examination and additional tests to determine the cause of the vomiting of blood and a treatment plan.
Prevention that can be done so that complaints of vomiting blood do not recur, namely:
Avoid foods that are too spicy and acidic. Healthy diet without delaying meals Avoid smoking and alcoholic drinks. At least 2 L of fluids / day. Stress management
