A young woman (19-20 yrs) has been spitting/bringing up blood for the past two and half years. This lasts for about 3 days, and occurs every 4 - 5 days. Sometimes it starts with dark, somewhat clotted blood which then becomes clear, and sometimes it starts clear & red. More recently she has had blood in her stool (feces) as well. When the bleeding starts, she has pain in her abdominal and chest area. Once the bleeding is over, the pain subsides.
She has been tested for TB, stomach and other cancers. She has undergone various tests - endoscopy, CAT scans, abdominal and chest ultrasound, various x-rays (chest, nasal area), several blood tests. All tests have turned up clear, and some have been repeated in case something was missed the first time. She has been under various medication - but those were discontinued once it was determined they were ineffctual. she has been off all medication for about three months.
I sought your site and found 'Thrombocytopenia' - which may be something she should be tested for? I am not a medical professional, and am looking for help in determining what possible diseases she should be tested for.
