Cardiologist 's  Response

I understand your concern and would explain that your symptoms could be related to a lung disorder (including pulmonary embolism) or gastric ulcer.

It is really important differentiating if the blood is from your lungs or stomach.

For this reason, I would recommend performing some tests:
- complete blood count, PCR for inflammation
- D-Dimmer plasma levels for pulmonary embolism
- a chest Angio-CT scan.

A fibrogastroscopy may be needed.

You should discuss with your doctor on the above tests.

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