You need to see a doctor ASAP. While I can't tell you for sure what the cause of your symptoms are, here is what I know: blood in your vomit is usually due to bleeding in your esophagus. This can happen from purging--it rips your esophagus, or other organs. Additionally, the acid in vomit can erode your esophagus and parts of your mouth. This is NOT something to take lightly.

Muscle fatigue can be because your body and its muscles are not getting enough nutrients to continue functioning properly. They are struggling to continue performing routine acts, like walking and sitting. Without fuel, they can't function.

It's not worth waiting to see if these symptoms get worse. It's crucial that you find someone you can talk to, and see a doctor as soon as possible. I don't want anything to happen to you.

I agree with Jen. You need to see a doctor, and soon. Blood is bad, and it's scary. We are not medical professionals, so we can't tell you what's wrong, but your doctor can. Go to your doctor, and tell them that you are purging, let them help you. Don't wait to see if it gets worse or goes away, chances are it won't go away. Go see your doctor.

Take care.
