Upper GI conditions like an ulcer, inflammation of the upper digestive tract or GERD can be considered.  

An upper endoscopy or upper GI series would be appropriate tests to evaluate these symptoms.  

You can also consider tests looking for H Pylori.  

If there is blood in the stool, I would consider a flexible sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy.  

These options can be discussed with your personal physician.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
