Hi, thank you for reaching out to us.

We understand your concern regarding bloody vomiting and having asthma. This is very distressing and we will try to assist you.

Vomiting blood is something to be concerned and it needs prompt investigation. Bloody vomitus means there is bleeding somewhere in the alimentary tract. Some of the common causes of bloody vomiting are:

  • Esophageal varices
  • Perforated peptic ulcer
  • Trauma along the alimentary tract

If you experience these symptoms, please go to the nearest hospital as soon as possible:

  • Continuous vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Fainting or nearly fainting
  • Fatigue or tired

Asthma needs to be controlled. Excessive vomiting could lead to shortness of breath as well. The symptoms might be related and needs further evaluation by a doctor.

We hope that our answer helps you. Thank you.
