Blood in vomit after alcohol consumption?
I am concerned about one of my son's friends. He is 18 and stayed with us last night after a night of drinking. When he woke in the morning he was hungover and vomited. Afterwards he told me that there was blood in it which was bright red and clotted. Typically, when I said he should get it checked out by his GP he said 'ah don't worry, I'll be fine' But I am worried. Any advice?

George Adamson
I would only worry if its old dark blood,
Fresh blood could be almost anything

I have spewed blood and still kept drinkin loads of times just one of those things i guess.

........ give.me.points............

Hi, it sound like he might of have a damaged liver, especially if he does consume alcohol on a regular basis and i do think he should get it check out as there should not be having blood in there vomit. I know a few people who have had liver damage. The other reason could of been from him wrenching when being sick there for cutting inside and causing it to bleed. It could if just been something hed eaten that night and it looked like blood. I would just have a quiet word with him or maybe even his parents and tell them what he told you as it could be serious.

It sound like he might have opened a bleeding ulcer.

If he is 18 and drinking enough to cause stomach bleeding, cirrhosis is not far away and death follows.

Better let him get himself checked by the doctor. It may not be anything or it may be serious. Common Causes are : Gastric ulcer, duodenal ulcer, gastric erosions, Less common are esophageal varices ( especially in alcoholics) bleeding diathesis, gastric carcinoma. Other rarer causes also are there.

blood in vomit, young lad, i will advice him to go to the A&E , better safe than sorry.

Should probably get it checked out - but don't worry too much unless it is happening regularly (or at least more than once.)

I was wondering this question myself. I had a bad drinking experience a few weeks ago and then spent the next 2 days vomiting blood, hyperventilating and fainting. I was alright after that but it was strange. I think he should see a GP though, just incase.

If it was bright red and clotted it was either a fresh bleed in which case he'd develop low blood pressure and a fast pulse and needs medical attention sooner rather than later, or it was tomato soup he'd had when drunk and forgot about it.

This happened to someone I know, they panicked and dialled 999 then felt like an idiot when they remebered about the bowl of heinz theyd had the night before.

that sounds really bad,i think he should definately see someone,tell his parents see if they can talk him round...............

definately he should, he could develope oesophageal varices, common in heavy drinkers where blood vessels in the throat burst and the person may bleed to death, or, the blood may come from a stomach ulcer, should be checked regardless to rule out something more serious.

If he doesn't continue to drink that much frequently, then you probably are safe to put it down to a night of extremely heavy drinking, and he'll be alright.

However, the fact that it was clotted is a concern.

I would say the best thing to do is keep an eye on him and if he shows any other continuing symptoms or continues to drink this way, he REALLY needs to get seen by a doctor.

Tell him to drink more!!!! the blood is just his bodys way of telling him that he needs to build up his tolerance for alcohol. he should be drinking a wide range of different alcoho's to build up the tolerance.. he should start hanging around with the local town drunk. he should be able to give him a few tips on how to drink properly. never eat when he drinks. a few reefers also help to settle his stomach.

Don't worry. It's probably just the remnants of some crazy shot or kebab.

he needs to get a doctor asap he could eventually with one of these episodes blleed to death. if does not to drinking alcohol with this issue it will only make it worse i'm not a doctor but he could have esophageal varies, or
upper gi bleeding. the bright red blood means he IS bleeding tell him this is not a matter to be blown off to get to the doctor / clinic so they can determine where the bleeding is coming from

I'd advise him to take it easy on the booze for a couple of days, and see a gp if he spews blood again.

Most guys who get really drunk and spew sometimes spew blood. Its nothing special as long as it goes away.

The visit tio the doctor will do him more damage than waiting.

Most people who die have seen a doctor not long before - think about it

I am an alternative medicinal therapist and an ex nurse. He has damaged the lining of his stomach, it may heal on it's own if he lays off the drink, or he may have an ulcer, he should go to the GP


he needs to see a doc. could have a gastric ulcer.

It sounds like to me he could have an ulcer, you should see if he has the same problem after eating foods with a lot of acid contents,and spicy foods. I also believe he should get it checked out before it gets worse.

heart broken
You should tell him 2 go 2 the doctor but it was probably cause by alcohol.

Most likely, an ulcer. Seek medical attention immediately.

you are on a last leg, go and wee tour doctor now

This could be varises (not sure of the spelling) varacus veins in the throat which can burst, or just because you son was staining his throat.

Go to the doctor and get some tests done , ignoring this could lead to something far worse. Clear your mind get a conclusion.

That is caused by the alcohol irritating the lining of the stomach and causing little bleeds which in turn can lead to bigger bleeds, it can also develop in to alsorts of stuff. This is getting more common in young people just now. (Ive just been reading about it) I would nag him till he went to the docs if I was you and tell his mum to do the same. But as we all know teenagers know best!!! lol

Well a simple explanation would be that if he'd been vomiting alot eventually it would look blood coloured as there's nothing in the stomach left to come out so the lining starts coming away (the red colour). but if this was the first time he'd been sick since drinking that night that's worrying, he's too young to have psoriasis through drinking but he may have the condition anyway and drinking brings it to light. i'd go 2 see the doctor.

I looked it up for you and I agree with everyone else, he needs to see a doctor Asap.

Blood in vomit (hematemesis)

Bright red streaks of blood in the vomit can be caused by irritation of the mouth or nose from vomiting. This is not serious if there is only a small streak of blood that you are quite sure came from your mouth or nose.

A moderate to large amount of blood in vomit indicates bleeding in the digestive tract (gastrointestinal tract [GI tract]), usually from the esophagus, stomach, or upper part of the small intestine (duodenum). Digestive tract bleeding can be caused by inflammation, peptic ulcer disease, gastritis, or tears in the esophagus. If bleeding is severe, the vomit will be mostly blood or material that looks like coffee grounds (partially digested blood).

Call your doctor right away if you have more than a small streak of blood in your vomit or if you are not sure the blood came from your mouth or nose.


Peptic ulcers

Peptic ulcers are craterlike sores that develop when the digestive juices produced by the stomach eat away or erode the lining of the digestive tract. Peptic ulcers may form in the lining of the stomach (gastric ulcers) or just below the stomach, at the start of the small intestine (duodenal ulcers).

The most common causes of peptic ulcers are infection with Helicobacter pylori bacteria and frequent use of aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

Common symptoms of an ulcer include:

Burning, aching, and gnawing pain between the navel and the breastbone (epigastric pain), possibly extending to the back.
Pain may last minutes or hours and is often relieved by eating or by taking antacids or a stomach acid blocker.
Weeks of pain that comes and goes may alternate with pain-free periods.
Lack of appetite and weight loss.
Bloating, nausea, or vomiting after eating. Vomit may contain bright red blood or partially digested blood that looks like coffee grounds.
Black, tarry stools. Dark red blood may be mixed in stool.
Treatment with medication usually is effective at relieving symptoms caused by peptic ulcers. Surgery may be needed if the ulcer causes excess bleeding in the digestive tract or if a hole (perforation) develops in the stomach or intestine.

Jeeeez... he should def go to a doctor. Call the NHS for him and tell him what they say, they will probably tell him to go to the A&E good luck!
