Question: Hi yes. My aunt is having these symptoms and I'd like your opinion of what might be going on. She started with nausea and now has progressed to being extremely weak, she looking blood somehow and has black tar stools. She lives in another state and I'm worried and can't find anything on Internet with her symptoms.
