Is a tender stomach normal with a peptic ulcer? My entire stomach
area, from just below my breasts, down to my navel
, is very tender to the touch. When touched it produces like a burning/stinging/bruised feeling. Depending on the day, or time of the day, the pain is greater or less. It's not any worse than it has been for the past month or so, but it is worrying me. Is this normal with a duodenal ulcer?
