Blood in vomit and abdominal/chest pains?

To get to the point, I've had an eating disorder for a few years, since I was almost 11, and now I'm 15. It's varied from anorexia to bulimia, but these past few years its centered around binging and purging. For the past few months, I've found blood in my vomit. Its a dark brown and it resembles coffee grounds. I've also been having sharp pains in my abdominal and chest, which usually don't last long at all. Lately, though, the chest pains have been lingering. I feel, nauseated all the time, even when I eat. So, I guess my question is, what could possibly be wrong? I've attempted searching over the internet, but I haven't been able to find too much information. Also, is there any way I can find a local clinic that deals with eating disorders for teens without notifying my parents? I'd really like to find out what's wrong so I know how serious this is.

But chances are very strong that you have a gastritis at the very least.  You need to see an internal medicine person and from there get a recommendation to an eating disorder clinic.  It's a  mistake not to tell your parents about this because the symptoms you have are the signs of a potentially serious problem if you continue with your eating disorder.  And I mean a very serious problem.

I would strongly urge you to discuss this with your parents and to see a doctor.
Some of the symptoms alone are cause for concern.  
You could try looking up the complications of anorexia or bulimia.

I would recommend you get medical advice urgently.
