Bleeding stomach ulcer symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Bleeding stomach ulcer symptoms


Avatar n tn Can anyone tell me what the symptoms of an ulcer are? I mean, like a serious ulcer. Stomach has been hurting pretty bad for two weeks. Really bad the past few days. Throwing up, some blood there. Can't keep food down. Don't have any health insurance. Is there anything I can take or do that will help?! Many thanks.
Avatar f tn Nausea Vomiting Loss of appetite Loss of weight Tiredness (a symptom of a bleeding ulcer) Weakness (a symptom of a bleeding ulcer) Blood in vomit or stool. When blood is in the stool, it appears tarry or black (symptom of a bleeding ulcer). The only way to be able to tell if it is an ulcer for sure is to have your Dr. run these very common tests. Doctors can perform endoscopic and x-ray examinations, as well as testing for H. pylori.
655875 tn?1295695107 If you are afraid of a stomach ulcer you DEFINITELY need to make an appointment with your PCP and start having tests run. an Ulcer is NOTHING to mess with. My Dad had a bleeding Ulcer when I was 20 and her ALMOST died. He spent 2 WEEKS in ICU and took 18 units of blood to get it under control. PLEASE don't mess around IF you think that is what is going on with you!!! PLEASE keep us updated on how you are doing. You KNOW that we will worry about you!!! Looking forward to your update.
Avatar m tn bloating after eating (sometimes), upset stomach (often, especially after coffee), stomach pain pretty much right between the breastbone and navel, heartburn (frequently but not always), lack of appetite (sometimes), and belching (frequently). Sometimes the pain is relieved by eating, sometimes it's made worse. Over the past 3-4 months I've had two episodes of burping acid back into my mouth but I don't know if that's related or not.
Avatar f tn Your symptoms are typical for H. pylori infection of stomach, and you maybe even developed an stomach or duodenal ulcer from it. Upper abdominal bloating, burping, burning sensation in upper middle stomach, hearburn...are typical symptoms. You need a breath test for H. pylori, if positive, you get antibiotics for 2 weeks, and this is it. SOD pains are usually on the right just under the rib cage.
967312 tn?1247503672 I was just curious, does having a bleeding ulcer hinder my chances of having a healthy baby or pregnancy? Would it be unsafe for me to have a child with stomach or intestinal problems?
Avatar f tn Could I have an ulcer? I have stomach pain around my belly button and above - pain goes through to my back. Pain severe when I waken in the morning until I get up (strange) Pain is worse when I am lying down. When I eat, the pain goes away for a couple of hours, then comes back.
Avatar m tn You may have an ulcer. When your stool is black it indicates an upper GI bleed, which could be coming from the stomach or small intestine. This doesn't mean cancer, it could be a bleeding ulcer. It's good that you are seeing your GI doc on Monday, he should have some answers for you. Until then, eat foods that are easy on the stomach, and easily digested. Avoid spicy foods, and greasy foods. THANKS FOR YOUR SERVICE!!!
Avatar f tn Endometroisis is more common than you would think but they find it lapryscopically, which means going inside so doctors don't like taking that route unless it's unbearable pain. Birth control is supposed to, and known to help it. I was diagnosed with it. Also, those are a lot of symptoms of cervical cancer but don't get yourself scared. It's no were near being like heart cancer, you have time to find it.
Avatar f tn Yes, you can still have an ulcer. Your symptoms could be an ulcer. I had a duodenal ulcer (In the intestines) and the pattern was a little similar to yours. I didn't want to eat though because it burned after. Anyway, lifestyle choices can be related such as drinking alcohol. Or if you take a lot of OTC pain relievers like ibuprofen. My ulcer was caused by biliary reflux. I had lots of tests but finally an endoscopy found it. Going to a gastroenterologist will be a good idea.
Avatar m tn Figuring it to be exhaustion I put up with it for a week. When the symptoms persisted I called the doc. His review was a peptic ulcer and prescribed 30mg of Prevacid along with 1g of Amoxil and Biaxin (not sure of amount). Since then, I have nausea in the morning upon waking even after eating and taking the pills. In the afternoon I start to cough and get a taste of mucus or bile. I am too young to have these problems. Please help or advise anyway you can.
Avatar f tn Well, yeah, but the remedies for an ulcer are different than the remedies for other gastric problems. It's hard to believe your mother about this, though, because as you probably know, an ulcer if not treated can eventually become a bleeding ulcer, which isn't wonderful -- I had one many years ago. I thought I had one like you and saw my doctor, who said I was too young to have one and let me go.
203342 tn?1328737207 What are they symptoms of a stomach ulcer? I've had this gnawing feeling in my stomach lately when I shouldn't be hungry. I noticed it tonight after dinner. It almost feels like my stomach is eating itself! I know that's a strange way to put it. It's kind of hard to describe. I also feel a bit of possible heartburn off and on. At least that's what I think it is. I've been pretty busy so I don't know if I might have missed any symptoms before.
Avatar m tn For the last 5 yrs ive had ulcer like symptoms.. Two scopes later, both negative and Im still experiencing extreme pain when my stomach is empty... I had the last scope about a year ago and he did happen to mention that i had excess bile... He had to suction it out before he could even look at my stomach....One of the Drs i work with mentioned dumping syndrome, i have some reflux but its not bad... just extreme pain in my stomach when its empty... Ive been on carafate and prevacid etc..
Avatar m tn I smoked almost a pack a day. Two years ago I started having a stomach issue. At that point my symptoms were pain/discomfort in the stomach with mucus in stool and what felt like constipation. I had an endoscopy/colonoscopy done. The endoscopy revealed an ulcer which had an h.pylori infection. I was given prevacid to treat it. The symptoms never went away. I was given another endoscopy 3-4 months later to confirm the ulcer was gone as was h.pylori. The endoscopy came back clean.
Avatar m tn He, after asking many questions found I had been symptomatic of an ulcer, that through life, because of the thin lining of healing stomach tissue that constantly recovers that skin when being in an acid rich environment with stressful event always going on in life had this occurrence happen over and over with anxiety because of the body feeling a threat of internal bleeding every time that ulcer skin fell off and exposed the stomach lining like a scab.
Avatar m tn Hi, h pylori infection is known to cause peptic ulcer disease, this in turn can cause bleeding which can present as dark stools. Continue with the therapy, this will help eradicate your symptoms and the ulcer. And the antibody test is a reliable indicator of h pylori infection. Regards.
Avatar f tn They also have me on 4 pills a day for the ulcer medicine and another pill to coat my stomach so my ulcer is probably already healed. I suffer from migraines as well and there will be times throughout the day my brain will feel bruised and like it's bleeding but only on the top. My question is should I go get the testing done or would it just be a waste?
Avatar f tn Why do i have pain in my upper left stomach, nausea after i eat, loss of appetite, and everytime i drink water it makes it worse
Avatar m tn I hope you quit binging, even if you have to cut it out completely. Life is just as good or better without it. I promise you. If you want to talk about it, i' quit in 99, not a drop since, plus quit drugs. Where there's a will , there's a way!!
Avatar m tn You could have a bacteria called Helicobacter pylori, which causes a stomach ulcer and possible bleeding. Were your stools black? Have you been to a hospital or taken antibiotics before this happened? Do you have diarrhea? It sounds like an ulcer. If the test comes back positive they will treat you will several antibiotics and possibly bismuth sulfite. As for the flu symptoms, plus the stomach pain it is possible that you had a virus if you had diarrhea?
Avatar f tn Over time an increased acidity in the stomach will damage the mucus layer that protects the stomach linig allowing the acid to get through and eat at the stomach lining this is called a stomach ulcer... the stomach ulcer is bleeding and this is why you have blood in your stools, if you do not get this treated ASAP there is a risk of ulcer perforation which is very serious.
Avatar m tn I would suggest infants cannot express pain or feelings. Please contact a best children specialists, & Gastroenterologists are specialized in these kinds of symptoms, they check and scanning ! They will decide - Whether its an ulcer near the digestive area or any other problem, My aunts baby had same problem but it was just an ulcer inside anal area !
967312 tn?1247503672 I mean like everyday, the last time I went to my doctor they mentioned something about a bleeding ulcer but there seems to be more symptoms than just that, I have problems with BM's, burping (as odd as that sounds it really bothers me), a lot of foods give me indigestion therefore I've lot a lot of weight because I simply don't eat much for fear of getting sick to my stomach. I get pain under my rib cage, usually first thing in the morning, a very sharp pain.
