causes of bright red blood in vomit, abdominal pain and unexplained bruises on calves?
this morning my partner had to rush to the toilet and also vomited with a few clots of bright red blood. He is still this evening complaining about pain just below his belly button which is made worse by movement. We had been drinking the night before but not enough for him to feel that ill. He does drink a lot and practically lives off fast food. Also, in the last few weeks we have been noticing quite bad bruises on his calves which are unexplainable. Could you please give me some advice on what it may be as he is stubborn towards the idea of seeing a doctor. Thanks
