Doctor :   hi
Doctor :  
how can i help you
User :   hi there - what's ur area of specialty
Doctor :  
i am a G P
User :   oh okay
Doctor :  
tell me your concern
User :   well I threw up a few times today (long story, the reason why could have been prevented so it's not something that you need to factor in), but at the very end of the last one there was a very tiny amount of blood. Nothing major, as I said very tiny. That was about 9 hrs ago now - to be honest, it was during sexual intercourse, only mentioning that to you in embarassment as I wasn't sick prior
User :   I've read varying answers online, with some saying it's common for that to happen to people...
Doctor :   age,
User :   25
User :   when I regularly spit like sorta forcing saliva from my throat and then spitting out, it comes up clear.
Doctor :   do you have loose stools
User :   I'm a lot better with that than I was as a child
Doctor :  
ok
User :   I watch what I eat a lot more carefully -- although I'm not sure how that would be related?
Doctor :  
do you have any throat pain
User :   no
Doctor :  
do you smoke?
User :   no
Doctor :   do you have cough?
User :   no I don't
User :   I just feel like I have to belch a bit more than usual -- but I think that also has to do with the fact that the last few days I've been only eating 1 meal per day so my stomach gets this weird feeling.
User :   but as I said I think that's just due to stress I'm eating less
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
what i suggest is that Drink lot of warm water
Doctor :  
Take some medicines like Tab domstal 10mg
Doctor :  
3 times a day
User :   can I get that without a prescription do you think?
Doctor :  
i think you can get this
User :   in your opinion though, why did atiny bit of blood come up?
Doctor :  
in force thorowing up
Doctor :  
small blood vessel will leak
Doctor :  
this is not a problem
Doctor :  
if it reapeats you need to think about it
User :   okay, so sounds like I should be fine then
User :   if it ever did happen again (I will not let it) but what happens to the person?
Doctor :  
there is nothing to worry
Doctor :  
just take this tablet
Doctor :  
avoid spicy and oily foods
User :   what will the tablet do and what if I can't find it?
Doctor :  
you will find it it is an OTC
Doctor :  
The pharmacological name is Domperidone 10 mg 3 times a day
Doctor :  
Take this tablet half anhour before food for 5 days
Doctor :  
Avoid spicy foods, oily foods
User :   okay i'm reading though on a site from yahoo answers where someone wrote back that that some people have blood loss and end up dying?
Doctor :  
it is absolutely
Doctor :  
there is no basis for this
User :   See the person had asked the question "What could throwing up blood be a symptom of" and someone responded: A serious medical problem that ought to be checked out. We admit several patients each week for GI bleeds, and once in a while one of them dies from blood loss. Get yours checked before it gets to be a real problem, please! ---- are you saying my situation is different then or?
Doctor :  
Just once throwing a bit of blood is not dangerous
Doctor :  
if you throw up only blood then it is a problem
User :   ah okay, what will the pill do for me
Doctor :  
the pill will help you to suppress the inflamamtion
Doctor :  
if you are really scared then you need to see a Gastroenterologist
User :   well based on what you told me I am not
User :   because it only happened this one time
Doctor :   yes

User :   I normally only get sick a few times out of the year and when I do throw up it's normal every time
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
then ther ei snothing to worry
Doctor :  
do you consume alcohol?
User :   no very rarely
