Small amount of blood in vomit
Earlier this morning, I woke up because there was acid in my esophagus. I tried to pass it off, drink some water, or sit up, but none of those would help. So, I went to the toilet and vomited.
For some reason, this was a somewhat violent vomit session. The thing that concerns me is that in the very last vomit, there were a couple small, bright red spots, which I assume was blood. The only other thing it could possibly be is ketchup because I had 2 double cheeseburgers for lunch yesterday.
I'm 25, and I've never seen blood in my vomit before. I don't vomit much either. The contents of the vomit looked normal and matched what I ate and drank yesterday.
Any ideas? I'd like to think that the blood was caused by the somewhat violent vomit session since the only time I saw blood was at the very end. I had a lot of peanuts last night, and I had that aftertaste in my mouth the whole morning.
Also, whenever I cough, there is never any blood in the spitum (if that's the right word for it).
I have also been under an exceptional amount of stress since yesterday, which I'm sure doesn't help at all.
