That is some I know of. I think you should consult a doctor

This is probably from an internal bleed somewhere. I would seek out another doctor and get a second opinion as soon as you can! This isn't sounding too good for you, especially with weight loss! Go and get the testing done with the new doctor, and make sure that you know what all the tests are for, and what they tell the doctor that it is, or isn't, because they need to count things out, as well as find out what it is. Sorry to hear you are feeling poorly. Good luck, hope this helps.
