Abdominal pain, blood in saliva. No blood in teeth, gums, nose. Drink occassionally. What could it be?

Recently I have had some abdominal pain , not really a sharp pain but when I am lying in bed and my wife puts her arm over my abdomen it is a very annoying pain that gets worse the longer there is any pressure, I brushed this off as nothing but I ve noticed the past two nights I have had a couple drinks no more than maybe half a cup of vodka, when I awoke in the morning there was blood in my saliva , the first night it wasn t too bad just a bit of blood that cleared up in a few minutes. This morning there was a good mouthful of watered down blood and took about 10 minutes to clear, I inspected my teeth and gums and blood didn t seem to be coming from there nor my sinuses after I blew my nose. Any suggestions as to what that may be? I am 22 years of age 5 1 and 120lbs, I drink occasionally usually only one drink every other week with no other known health problems.

From your history it seems that you might be having acute gastritis giving rise to pain in abdomen while giving pressure.
Bleeding might be from GI Tract.
Go for stool test for occult blood.
Consult gastro-enterologist and get examined.
Stop taking alcohol.
Take Omiprazole or Ranitidine.
Avoid fried and junk food.
Take milk diet, buttermilk.
Ok and bye.
