Brief Answer:
a tear or an ulcer in stomach

Detailed Answer:
Black stools indicate bleeding into the stomach or intestines. The possibility of a small erosion or ulcer in the stomach is high. Sudden vomitings can also tear the mucosa of stomach or esophagus causing black stools. If you have persistent black stools, I would recommend to visit a gastroenterologist.

Hello: About a week ago I began to feel a slight pressure in the top of my stomach. The pain spread up through my esophagus and into my neck, but it also made my arm hurt. This concerned me and I went to the doctor who performed an EKG and cardiac enzymes which were normal. The next day I began to belch up acid into my throat and it left a bitter taste in my mouth. The belching has continued and now I have full blown heartburn. Nothing seems to help and the pain in my arm, although not severe, has continued. Should I be concerned about my heart, or does this seem purely gastrointestinal?

Dear Doctor,
for my Father, he has difficulty swallowing due to block in end of esophagus connecting to stomach.. ie..long segment 14cm in length eccentric bowl valve
thickening noted in lower 3rd segment of esophagus
with extension into the gastro esophageal junction,
lesser curvature and greater curvature of the stomach
causing irregular luminal narrowing.
pls suggest a cure for this.
thanks Doctor
