In case of acute active bleeding from upper G.I.Tract one will have following symptoms.
1) Haematemesis (Vomiting of dark coloured fresh blood )
2) Signs of Cardiogenic shock like sweating, low blood pressure ,uneasiness etc
3)Acute pain in abdomen.

In case of chronic bleeding from the upper G.I.tract the symptoms would be

2) Loss of appetite.
3) Passing black coloured stools
4) Chronic dull pain in abdomen
5)Fatigue, Weakness due to reduced haemoglobin levels
