Vomiting blood is NOT NORMAL!!
That is NOT a normal symptom of the swine flu or any other yearly flu.
By Mayo Clinic staff
Vomiting blood (hematemesis) can indicate a life-threatening condition, so promptly identifying the cause is essential.
*****While vomiting blood may be caused by swallowed blood, as from a nosebleed or forceful coughing, truly vomiting blood usually represents something more serious and requires immediate medical attention.****
Bleeding in your upper gastrointestinal tract (mouth, esophagus, stomach and upper small intestine) from peptic ulcers or torn blood vessels is a common cause of vomiting blood.
Blood in vomit may be bright red, or it may appear black or dark brown like coffee grounds.
***********Call 911 if vomiting blood causes dizziness after standing, rapid, shallow breathing or other signs of shock.************
Hi Jenny, I'm Sarah and caught the swine flu in July. I'm STILL nauseous and throw up, have flu-like symptoms, etc... The drs don't know really why either. They're calling it post viral chronic fatigue syndrome and/or Lupus.
To this day each of my symptoms have been treated as separate occurrences, so I have a pill for the nausea, for the upper left quadrant pain, for GERD (post viral), etc.
I hope you feel better soon, I know when I contracted this I was working full time, healthy and enjoying life, since I've been sick I've lost my job and have been put on disability because they "don't know" much about the swine flu or its complications. Even though I worked in the medical field and used every precaution they told me to, I still got sick! Talk to you soon...
