Vomiting Blood Including Tuberculosis?
Good afternoon, I was sick yesterday morning Thursday, then vomited and vomited with not much blood and bright red color, then dizzy headache and heartburn. What disease is that? Thank you in advance
Hello Wati, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Rio will try to answer your question.
Vomiting of blood that occurs is different from the case of coughing up of blood caused by tuberculosis. Coughing up of blood experienced by people with tuberculosis, comes from problems in the respiratory tract. Meanwhile, if vomiting blood is usually caused by problems in the digestive tract.
There are many possible causes of vomiting of blood. Because blood arises during vomiting, it can come from the esophagus, or stomach, or even from the intestine. However, the possibility of illness that occurs based on additional complaints such as dizziness and heartburn as you experience it is as follows:
Gastric ulcer Gastritis GERD Varicose esophagus Esophagitis SyndromeMallory-Weiss Duodenal ulcer Vomiting accompanied by blood should not be underestimated. You should consult a doctor if vomiting of blood is experienced continuously or more and more blood or accompanied by other complaints that are increasingly disturbing for further examination and to get treatment in accordance with the disorder you are experiencing.
Right now what you can do is:
Maintain a good diet, on time, eat little but often. Avoid foods that are acidic, spicy, fatty, alcoholic and fizzy drinks. If you are currently taking drugs that have a bleeding effect, you should consult the use of these drugs to the doctor. Consult a doctor immediately if complaints continue. That's all the answers I can give, hopefully it helps.
Thank you :)
