Hi !

From your history it appears to be a case of oesophageal tear/varices( a defect in the food pipe).This could be due to consumption of alcohol/ spicy food frequently.You need to consult a gastro enterologist for an endoscopic evaluation and further management. For the second issue you have raised you need to undergo Electrocardiogram(ECG) to rule out cardiac involvement.

Thanks for using HCM.
As you have mentioned about blood coming from mouth, if it's bright red colored, source of bleeding will be with in mouth or in throat. Could be from gums due harsh brushing of your teeth,

Use a soft brush to brush your teeths,
Consult a ENT specialist for throat examination.

Chest pain could be due to esophagus movement as you had while taking food, but better get one ECG done,

Hope i has answered your query, wish you a good health.
