Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.
Nausea and Vomiting
The appearance of your vomit or stools suggests that you have hemorrhaged into your digestive tract. This is an emergency, as your bleeding may be continuing or may soon recur. Seek emergency care immediately.
It is impossible to know the source of your bleeding without tests. Common causes of bleeding that result in nausea and vomiting include an ulcer in the stomach or duodenum, a tear in the lining of the esophagus, severe irritation of the stomach lining (a condition known as "gastritis,") a leak from one or more congested veins in the esophagus (these congested veins are a complication of liver disease and are called "esophageal varices"), and stomach cancer.
It is likely that your evaluation will include an endoscopy test (esophagogastroduodenoscopy, or "EGD"). With this test, a doctor can view the inside of your esophagus, stomach, and the first segment of your small intestine by way of a flexible tube and camera.
