Question: Vomiting Blood / Brown Urine


 jessica1234 - Sun Apr 29, 2007 11:39 am

17, female. Within the past year i started to drink alcohol and for the past couple months it has became a weekly thing. I would drink at least once a week mayb twice and on holidays even more. I havent really had problems but just yesterday morning i vomitted blood and my friends told me it might be from my liver. I already made the decision to stop drinking for a long time at least months, change my diet and go on detox. But this morning i started to feel abdominal pain and my urine was a brown / tea colour. I havent felt nausea or the need to vomit anymore but are these symptoms signs of liver damage? Will detox help my situation or must i seek a doctor immediately?

i'd also like to add that it seems everytime i drink alcohol id vomit the NEXT morning. which is quite strange and sometimes even when i didnt feel drunk the night before, as long i consume alcohol which isnt of a clear colour the next day i would feel really sick and vomit. why is that?
