Thanks for posting your query.
A brown colored vomiting after a stomach pain is suggestive of bleeding inside the stomach. It can be due to gastric ulcers or pulmonary hypertension or stomach cancer. Endoscopic examination by a proficient gastroenterologist will help in the proper diagnosis and management.
This is a worrisome symptom and the cause of bleeding needs to be detected after proper investigations.
I hope this answers your query.
