My son once had acute pancreatitis. The doctors did a scope down his throat and he had bloody spots on his stomach. He was doing better and then about 5 months later he started showing the same symptoms. He was vomiting every few minutes and eventually it became bloody. He had extreme pain from his chest to his lower abdomen; no fever but he was very lethargic. He couldn't eat when he finally stopped throwing up because he hurt too bad. He was severely dehydrated after only a couple of hours. They then did the scope again and this time his stomach was bloody and irritated on one whole side. His test results came back negative for the pancreatitis again so we know it wasn't this again We have been back and forth to all kinds of doctors and nobody seems to know what is going on with him.

What comes to mind is some sort of toxin. Consider the possibility of something ingested, intentionally or inadvertently. If this is the case, obviously removal of the source is the first step. If this is self-administered, intentional ingestion, that problem must be dealt with at a different level.
