Avatar m tn Dear Dr. Kaul, thanks so much for your words of advice. I recently had an Upper-GI Endoscopy done, and to my good fortune there was no Esophageal Cancer or even Barrett's Syndrome. However, we did find an unusually high amount of stomach acid and a hint of peptic ulcer. The doctor determined that due to a dysfunctional esophageal sphincter, the acid refluxed and could have done minor damage to my esophagus - causing my dysphagia.
Avatar f tn Six months is a too long time and you should have got evaluated by now. Stomach diseses, gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, stomach cancer all can lead to nausea and loss of appetite. Do you also have yellowish discoloration of your skin, eyes and urine? That could be due to gall bladder disease or hepatitis. Eat small healthy meals. You need to consult a primary care physician. He will further refer you to a gastroenterologist.

I suffered my first ulcer for several months before it was found on endoscopy and then I drank a chalky liquid for two days and felt better. So, it can be a quick recovery if this is the situation for you. Do you take a lot of nsaids by the way?
Avatar f tn Hi, dyspepsia is a vague discomfort in the upper abdomen or chest that may be described as gas,a feeling of fullness, gnawing,or burning. This can occur with peptic ulcer disease. Peptic ulcer pain is usually a burning pain. They commonly occur in the stomach and duodenum. Stomach ulcers cause pain on eating and duodenal ulcers cause pain on fasting (2-3 hrs after eating). Peptic ulcers are eroded areas in the lining of the digestive tract usually in the stomach and duodenum.

Avatar m tn A peptic ulcer is usually sores on the inside of your stomach or small intestines. This is what you are talking about? Or do you have sores on your mouth? Either way, neither is a risk for HIV transmission. Kissing is not a way that people get HIV. HIV in adults is transmitted by penetrating, unprotected vaginal or anal sex or sharing IV drug needles. That is really it. Saliva and air inactivate the virus so kissing is not a means of transmission.
Avatar f tn about two years ago I had a peptic ulcer. had an endoscopy and that is when they found it. I took previcid for a while and it went away. I fely good for a long time. Now about two months ago I vomited in the middle of the night. The next day I felt the same pain I had when I had the ulcer. I went back on my previcid and it didn't go away. I went to the doctors. Had some blood work done. Lipase is elevated. 419.

Avatar f tn The word “peptic” refers to pepsin, a stomach enzyme that breaks down proteins. If a peptic ulcer is located in the stomach it is called a gastric ulcer. I did some searching because it is not usual to have severe pain from peptic ulcer disease once treatment has begun. The following is some of what I found: BEGIN..Treatment recommendations of the American College of Gastroenterology are based on the understanding that PUD is usually the result of H.
Avatar f tn Prevacid are often taken together to eradicate Helicobacter Pylori, a bacterial infection that can lead to stomach and duodenal ulcers. A tender stomach is very common with peptic ulcer, either duodenal or gastric.

Eradication of the infection by antibiotic course (heli kit) in individuals will surely improve symptoms and may prevent gastric cancer. Since this bacterium has flagella and moves through the stomach lumen and do colonization in stomach that result into chronic gastritis, an inflammation of the stomach lining. Investigations include blood antibody test, stool antigen test, or with the urea breath test.
Avatar f tn Possibilities that may need to be considered include gastritis, peptic ulcer, chest wall inflammation etc. With the symptoms the possibility of cancer cannot be ruled out though there is no reason to specifically suspect it. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought. Meanwhile you could try some OTC antacids and see if these seem to help.
Avatar n tn ive had the pain for about 2 months,i havent been to the doctor,im pretty sure its a peptic ulcer,about 99% sure,and i have the urge to pee non stop but only a tiny bit of urine comes out each time and its pink,and sometimes has stomach lining looking peices..i want to sleep. is it ok to sleep and then go to the emergency room tommorow?
Avatar f tn Im thinking my stomach could have been weakened from when I did have a peptic ulcer, or something to do with acid reflux, or maybe its possible i have a food allergy. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas.. I would greatly appreciate it like you wouldnt believe! Help!
Avatar n tn Stomach pain may be caused by indigestion, possible peptic ulcer disease and other gastointestinal issues. Antacid and medications helping with gastric motility may help provide relief. Avoiding spicy food, skipping of meals and caffeine-rich drinks like tea, coffee, or soda may also help. If it persists, have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn My name is Sam and I'm a 15 year old female. Recently I've been worried about possibly having a peptic/stomach ulcer. I'm not freaking out over it, but I would like to see my doctor. I've been having pain in my upper middle abdomen. It's either sharp, achy, or burning. Sometimes it feels like I'm hungry. Anyways, I keep telling my mom about the symptoms, and she won't let me schedule a doctor's appointment! Why?
Avatar m tn a year ago a doctor suspected me of peptic ulcer and he gave me pantoprazole 40mg and domperidone for 2 weeks. Then all symptoms were gone after the treatment. After a few months i started taking this probiotic (with 250 billion cfu) then i started to get bloated, felt like the ulcer symptoms came back. I've been like that for 6 months now. I feel like there's too much gas inside me. I don't have excessive burping/flatulence though.

So for the ulcer to heal and to reduce acid levels avoid NSAID's, quit smoking, eliminate alcohol and reduce stress levels.
