Digestive Bleeding

Bleeding in the digestive tract is a symptom of a problem rather than a disease itself. It usually happens due to conditions that can be cured or controlled, such as hemorrhoids. Bleeding can come from one or more of these areas from a small area such as an ulcer on the lining of the stomach or from a broader problem such as inflammation of the colon.

The blood often appears in stool or vomit but isn't always visible, though it may cause the stool to look black or tarry. The level of bleeding can range from mild to severe and can be life-threatening. Also you may have lightheadedness, difficulty breathing, Fainting, chest pain and abdominal pain.
