Symptoms Doctor Can't Diagnos

I have these symptoms that have been going on for a couple months now. Spitting up blood every other day (usually when I do something strenous)...Sharp pains in my stomachm wierd girgling in my stomach, random constepation and if it's really bad, it feels like tiny pin neadles are poking me all around my stomach and chest. I just got a gastroscopy yesterday and they didn't find anything....Not even scarring from an ulcer...The doctors aren't sure what it is...But they are suggesting maybe a pulminary specialist...It seems to me that a colonoscopy would be the next step to go...I'm getting a little scared. Any thoughts on what this is?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern.
Spitting up blood needs proper assessment.
As your gastroscopy is normal,the ideal option for you would be pulmonologist consultation to look for lesion in the airways or lungs.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
