Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

It sounds like you might have an upper GI bleeding

Some causes are smoking, alcohol, over the counter pain pills like ibuprofen and a bacteria called H pylori

If you are having bleeding, I would recommend an upper endoscopy to look into the stomach and find the possible source

Medicine like prilosec can help in healing but this needs to be discussed with your GP
