What causes dysgeusia with rectal bleeding and heartburn?

My boyfriend is 46. Muscular build, good health nonsmoker, nondrinker. On the phone today he mentioned he has the taste of blood in his mouth and just went to the bathroom and lost "about a pint" of blood from his anus. He is waiting to hear back from his doctor. Had a colonoscopy less than a year ago that was good. He is a Firefighter/Paramedic. He usually goes to the bathroom once a day. Many things seem to upset his stomach, and he gets heartburn frequently. He just drinks milk, doesn't like to take antacids. I think he may be lactose intolerant as usually drinking milk or eating ice cream makes it hard to breath or wheezy and he spits alot after. Any ideas?

If he tastes blood, anal bleed then we need to think of
- bleeding disorder
- liver disorder

Need to check BT, CT, PT INR.

For what reason he had a colonoscopy - anything to suspect IBD.

If he is allergic to milk and gets wheeze for milk he needs to stop and take proper medication for his gastritis issue.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
