Abdominal pain, vomiting, nausea, blood in the stool, discomfort or pain in the abdomen… can be symptoms of a stomach ulcer (or peptic ulcer).

The gastric mucosa, gastric mucosa or epithelium is layered with many folds. Ulcers occur in this layer. If an ulcer occurs in the stomach or in the upper part of the small intestine leading to the stomach, it is called a peptic ulcer.

2. Stomach ulcers do not exclude anyone

However, women are more susceptible than men. The disease can “attack” you if it finds in you a potential environment and condition.

3. In the past, we still thought that long-term stress, eating “bad” foods, drinking and smoking… were the main causes of ulcers in the stomach.

But now, scientists also say that stomach ulcers are caused by an infection with bacteria, more specifically Helicobacter pylori. Helicobacter Pylori is thought to cause nearly 65% of gastric and duodenal ulcers.

Some medicines are also thought to cause stomach ulcers, such as aspirin, clopidogrel… which are taken regularly to help prevent heart attack or stroke, and arthritis medicines. Anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are also thought to cause about two-fifths of stomach ulcers. Stomach cancer in elderly patients can also be caused by peptic ulcers.

But in other cases, people can experience symptoms and cause some serious trouble. Those symptoms include: abdominal pain just below the chest, indigestion, nausea, loss of appetite, vomiting, weight loss, vomiting blood or dizziness, symptoms of anemia, such as dizziness and shock from blood loss… Bleeding in the stomach is a serious condition, especially in elderly patients, as they can lead to blood loss and death.
