Spitting up blood in vomiting, body ache, cold, shivering, diagnosed gastritis. What could this be?

I threw up yesterday. Everything I had eaten in the day. I noticed i was spitting up blood towards the end. I bit on paper to make sure it wasnt from any tooth. My whole body aches and I am cold and shivering. I've thrown up twice this morning. Not even holding down water. I was diagnosed with gastritis a while back. What could this be?

Dear friend, welcome and thanks for entrusting your query here at Healthcaremagic!
I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- and am glad to address to your query here.

The blood in the vomitus is due to gastritis.
The inflamed stomach oozes out blood from raw areas or any ulcers and appears in the vomit (hematemesis).

Are you on treatment for gastritis?
Do you have black stools?
Are you giddy?
Your condition is due to blood loss and anaemia.

You should seek urgent medical attention.
