Exclamation Worried - September 21st 2013, 03:34 AM

My boyfriend has had a sore stomach for a while now and then yesterday after lunch he threw up quite a bit of blood I'm very worried about him should he go get checked and what could it be

There is always someone who cares about you. It may not seem like it but there is. I can promise you that much.

Yes he should get checked out ASAP. I think that might be a sign of a stomach ulcer but only the doctor can determine exactly what's going on. Either way he needs to get it checked out.

I agree with Michael. Your friend must get himself seen to by a doctor because vomiting up blood is serious. Try your best to encourage your friend to see his GP. He might provide excuses saying it'll get better and so on but he needs to understand that what has happened is a cause for concern and that you wouldn't suggest such a thing unless you're really concerned for him. If you know his parents it may be a good idea to suggest to them. He might not like it but you're showing your natural concern for your friend and in time he'll come to realise this.

Life is for living, not for losing.

I agree with what was previously said, he should go get this looked at. Throwing up blood is not good at all and the cause could be a number of things that only a doctor can determine. This is serious so be sure that he takes your concerns seriously and gets the help he needs.

If it is a stomach ulcer, that is caused by an infection. Weird side story, someone gave themselves stomach ulcers on purpose and won the Noble Peace Prize.

If he is taking anything like ibuprofen/motrin/advil/aleeve, he should stop. That could be a source of ulcers/bleeding.

The bleeding could be from bad acid reflux.

Also, make sure he didn't just eat something red.

It's impossible for us to know so he should make an appointment.

Yes, definitely go see a doctor. There could be a wide variety of things going on here. While we can suggest that it could be x, y, or z, we can't take his individual case into consideration and run tests on him to see what it is. The doctor can check him out to see what's going on and then treat it. But, vomiting blood is always something to be taken seriously, so best to be safe than sorry!
