ulcers symptoms

I also have really bad heartburn. I have had this since I was very young. I got an upper GI when I was 11, but nothing showed up.

Can someone please tell me what ALL the symptoms are of a stomach ulcer? Thanks.

A: Generally stomach ulcers show positive for heliobacter pylori or can be caused by overuse of NSAID’s such as ibuprofen.

Stomach ulcers can cause a lot of pain and are often aggrevated by highly acidic foods, such as currys, some fruit juices and alcohol, they can also be soothed by milk and eating generally.

If you do think you have a stomach ulcer, avoid medications such as ibuprofen and asprin because they can cause the ulcer to rupture, also if you ever experience coughing up blood or blood in the stool it is most likely from a perferated ulcer

I know that foot ulcers are common mostly in diabetics, and though i’m not diabetic, diabetes runs in my family. my father is a type 2 diabetic. My problem is the sole of my foot has been sore for weeks, and the skin around is has gone hard, though it’s not as gory as the raw wounds on the internet. I’m worried that it could be the start of an ulcer.

A: An “ulcer” is an open sore.

it could be shallow, like a scrape or blister, or it could be deep, like a cut. it may be dry, or it may ooze a clear watery liquid, pus, blood, or all three.

It will usually have a red, swollen are around the outside, The bigger the red area, the worse the condition. Sometimes, you will see red streaks running from the wound and up your leg. That is the sign iof a very serious infection that needs immediate hospital care.

A: You should try to chill a bit if you can as ulcers are from worring and stressing ad they really suck.You get sick sometimes when you eat and feel bloated and your stomach will start hurting as ulcers are caused from the acids from our stomachs and can really tear you up.I think your stressing a lot and thinking of your friend always but you need to start relaxing if possible as stress with wear you down fast .Heart attacks are caused by higher stress too.I had ulcers’ and now i have to tell myself to relax alot and no it doesn’t help much…lol

A: my son tested positive for h pylori, he just finished his 2 week tripke therapy and was told that it can come back later in the future

Q: Can severe stress cause you to get ulcers? What are the symptoms when you have this condition? I also get?
panic attacts amI possibly waiting too long to take medication.zanax. Its prescribed up to 4 a day but I usually wait till I start feeling sick.

A: Zanax is very addictive. Yes ulcers can come from stress. My ulcer became evident after I ate. Got very nauseous. Had to lay off all greasy food. Took meds. It finally healed. Try some web sites about stree and how to combat it. What is stressing you? Can you avoid it? Do you have a chance to relax during the day? We all have a little stress but some are overwhelmed with it. Exercise helps as does a good diet. Prayer and meditation helps. Find something that suits your lifestyle. Good luck.

Q: I think I have or may be getting ulcers in my stomach, what are the signs and symptoms?
and have you ever had them and what are they caused by? alot of times I have this real bad burning in my stomach and it hurts really bad, and if i drink something like orange juice it makes it worse. But it’s mainly just in the morning when this happens.

A: Could be heart burn. Go to the Doctor to find out for sure. Track what you eat. Certain foods trigger heart burn such as coffee (it’s a big one), tomato, including pizza, nuts, alcohol, ORANGE JUICE and many other foods with acid. Don’t eat and then lay down. Don’t eat before bed. Take an ant-acid such as tumbs. You may need something stronger such as over the counter Zantac.

Q: Can severe emotional stress cause symptoms in the stomach that are related to ulcers, but not actually ulcers?
About an hour after I eat I get dull heavy feeling in my stomach and sometimes some sharp pains. they last momentarily and come and go throughout after I had a meal. But I am stressed out a lot so can it be from that? I am scared cause I do not know if I have an ulcer

A: Stress can cause quite an array of digestive symptoms. but be aware, stress can also cause ulcers, so just believing it is from stress does not rule out an ulcer or other problem. watch for blood in your stool or black stools, which will be the indication if you do have an ulcer that is bleeding. Try to reduce your stress level (some people try yoga, deep breathing, that kind of thing) and get regular exercise. Eat stuff that is low in sodium and saturated fats, and get plenty of fiber, and avoid alcohol. If you still are having problems with it that are impacting the rest of your life, I would highly suggest seeing a GI specialist to rule out any other problems that may need to be treated. good luck, hope this helps.
