Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The stomach under normal conditions does secrete acid called stomach acid. This acid is useful in the process of digesting food and in converting some nutrients to make it easier for the body to absorb. However, stomach acid levels can rise and cause symptoms due to several conditions, such as:
Smoking Consumption of caffeinated drinks, such as tea and coffee Stress, lots of thoughts Eating late Eating spicy, acidic, fatty and oily foods Eating too much at one time Eating close to bedtime
Which if it is continued continuously, there could be injury to the digestive tract, and this wound causes blood to vomit and have black or dark stools. But the condition of injury to the digestive system can also be caused by other things, such as bacterial infections, side effects of drugs, alcohol consumption and so on. In your condition, if it reaches the level of frequency once a week, this is a condition that must be treated immediately. Our advice is that you should check with an internal medicine doctor so that you can immediately find out the source of the bleeding and for what reason. The doctor may perform investigations such as ultrasound to further strengthen the suspicion.
Meanwhile, we strongly urge you to avoid risk factors that can aggravate your situation such as smoking, drinking tea and coffee, and late meals. Also avoid spicy, sour and greasy foods for your own good. Eat lots of vegetables, fruit and also consume more water. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
