Peptic Ulcer

Peptic Ulcer

A peptic ulcer is an area of the inside of the stomach that's internal mucosa has eroded away, leaving the tissue to the mercy of stomach acid. This creates an open sore on the inside of the stomach, the upper portion of the small intestine or the esophagus.

Symptoms

Symptoms may include a burning pain in the abdomen between the belly button and the sternum between 30 minutes and an hour after eating; nausea; vomiting; anemia; dull, achy chest pain; loss of appetite; blackened stool and sudden, severe abdominal pains that incapacitate you.

Causes

Peptic ulcers can be caused by hyper acidity, overeating, the excessive consumption of alcohol, eating too many spicy foods, excessive intake of coffee, food poisoning, smoking and the presence of helicobacter pylori bacteria.

Cautions

Gastrointestinal bleeding can be a life-threatening complication of an ulcer eroding away a blood vessel, so it is important to get checked out by your health professional for this ailment.
