    You need to see your doctor since your vomit is black; it may indicate bleeding. Ulcers and gastritis can cause vomiting. I presume you had an endoscopy to diagnose your conditions? Did your doctor not suggest any reason for the vomiting? Surely the endoscopy showed the cause?

      no they arent able to find the cause as yet. the conditions are all the result of the vomiting as i had none of them on my first endoscopy in june. not heard back off the biopsies yet.
