Worried.. Help - July 28th 2013, 07:55 PM

I don't remember the rules so please lmk if I'm out of line. I got sick today after I had a bowl of cereal and there was blood in it. Should I be concerned? Like is it my esophagus or what? Please help...

Puking blood isn't something that's considered normal. I would definitely be concerned. I suggest telling your parents and seeing about getting into the doctor. They can better assist you with this, and can also let you know what's causing the blood.

I hope you feel better soon

Thank you. I can't go to the doctor. I have no insurance or money. I can't tell my mom either because I'm currently fighting with her and my sister. Moving out

I definitely understand not wanting to go the doctor because of not having insurance, trust me. But when it comes to your health- you need to go. If it were a cough or a cold, you can nurse yourself back to health without a doctor. But when it comes to coughing/puking/sneezing/pooping/peeing blood, it can be a sign of something much worse then a typical cough. And although you an your mom are fighting, it's important to set your differences aside for your health. Can you get help from anyone else? Because I strongly feel as though this isn't something that you should leave untreated or not looked at.

I agree with Glitter, , you really should see a doctor ASAP. pukeing blood could mean serious things that requires medical attention.

Erm, as an anorexic with bulimic tendencies I'm going to disagree. You probably don't need to see a doctor. Was the blood a normal red or was it really dark and the consistency of coffee beans? If it was normal then you just scratched your mouth or throat while you were purging. If it was dark you need to go to emerg asap because dark blood is from you esophagus and you probably just tore it.

Bleeding a bit isn't anything to worry about. I mean, in general, purging is bad and horrible for you. But seeing a bit of blood? You're okay. I had the same problem and had to look into it so I'm pretty confident in my answer.

While this is probably correct, and could just be a scratch- you don't know that for sure. It's ALWAYS best to get it checked, even if you THINK you're okay, you can't be 100% positive. It's always safest to get it checked out.

Seeing a doctor will also allow you to talk about the issue and perhaps get recommendations about recovery. Plus, it's always best to be safe rather than sorry.

You should be concerned because I remember when that was me doing that to myself and I saw blood all the time but I did do one thing I asked a doctor about and she told that my stomach was probably bleeding from what I was doing. So remember we're always here to help!!!
