Lately started to have an enormous burning feeling.
I have a feeling that someone has a blow torch from breast to my naval level. I am taking famotidine now 20mg x day . Two weeks prior to starting famotidine I noticed a brown discharge with the spit in the morning (like old blood), this continued every morning. This weekend and this morning I saw fresh blood, very little mixed with the spit. I do these deep spits as I have a post nasal drip that I had all my life. Just to be clear. The blood is not from my teeth or tongue or mouth or nose bleed. The problem is it has been consistent for the past 2 weeks starting with dark blood and now with fresh. I have been on famotodine and very bland diet (rice, potatoes, oat meal, cream of wheat, boiled or grilled chicken, fish, water and camomile tea) 1 week and getting tiny bit of relief with burning that comes and goes.
Has anybody had this or knows if it is possible to see fresh blood from esophagus like this? Just not sure why I would start seeing fresh blood after taking famotidine for a week (if i have ulceration in esophagus).
