Stomach ulcer cause diarrhea

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach ulcer cause diarrhea


Avatar n tn A few weeks ago I had a bout where I couldn't eat anything without it ending up in a violent diarrhea. I would eat, then start to feel bloated and acidy in my stomach, then an hour or two later I would have severe cramping and loose (not really runny), odd smelling diarrhea. It lasted about a week or so. Since then I've had days that I'm prefectly regular. But if I eat anything spicy at all, or if I have caffeine ( or other things?), it comes back to haunt me.
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with a stomach ulcer following an endoscopy in hospital last Friday. I'm still in a lot of pain and have not received the results of the biopsy yet, to see whether it was caused by H. pylori. However I have a couple of questions regarding it! (I'm 19, and male and until all this appeared over the last ten weeks I was healthy.
Avatar n tn In the past fews weeks I've had blood work (normal), an ultrasound (normal), an upper pan (they found a gastic ulcer but don't think it can be the cause of my symtoms) and a colonoscopy (normal). I recently had a CAT scan, but don't yet know the results. Are there any other tests I should have done? My doctor doesn't feel my stomach pains are related to the diarrhea. What could I have?
Avatar f tn Can Mucinex (Guaifenesin) cause gastritis or irritate existing gastritis/ulcer? I was taking Mucinex for 5 days, 400mg once a day, and now my stomach is bothering me (burning pain). I have suffered from gastritis and a gastric ulcer in the past. Could this medication cause or aggravate those problems? It was actually helping my sinuses to drain, but now I'm afraid to take it.
7903885 tn?1395229582 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. The two common causes for this are: infection with helicobacter pylori and use of nonsteroidal anti inflammatory medications (NSAID).
Avatar n tn Luckily I have a very understanding girlfriend I've been diagnosed with IBS, but nobody can find any allergies or any reason as to why it has appeared. To me, the most likely answer would be that I had a stress-related stomach ulcer about 10 years ago (which lasted about a year - taking omeprazole etc). However, given that the IBS symptoms didn't start until about 2 years ago, the docs say it is not likely to be related.
Avatar n tn Stomach Cramp, Diarrhea, sweating , light headedness and fainting Hi this is my second time having this stomach pain problem please tell me what kinda sickness do i have i really need to know this is getting scarier luckily my mom was there the 2times that i have it i have a young 4yrs old daughter @ home..
Avatar m tn So, I'm about 23 years of age, average health (honestly, below average lol) and I've been having a stomach pain that's lasted quite a while. I'd say this pain started around 2009, I cant honestly remember if its older than that or not. So anyway, I started having this pain around 2009, didn't think much of it as I am Lactose Intolerant and figured I just need to change my eating habits. The pain started small, went away after a day or so, and only appeared once in a while (2-4 weeks).
Avatar f tn I was recently diagnosed with a stomach ulcer via endoscopy. I’ve been having the symptoms on and off for over a year. I had been taking low dose aspirin everyday for a few years before this, and stopped taking it over 6 months ago. I get a burning/gnawing pain in the center of my upper abdomen that is usually better after I eat a large meal. I get bloating also. It feels worse if I am upset or stressed and also if I do excersize that causes me to tense my ab muscles.
Avatar n tn Hello, Gastritis can cause pain in the upper abdomen after eating .Peptic ulcer disease causes upper left quadrant pain that usually begins 2 hours after a meal. It gets better with over the counter antacids. Stomach flu can cause indigestion and abdominal discomfort. Viral gastroenteritis can lead to nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. The exact location of pain and other details will help in determining the accurate cause .Take light meals. Avoid spicy fried foods.
Avatar n tn My daughter is 10 years old and she has been suffering from rectal bleeding and diarrhea for around 4 months now. We have done a blood test for her which turned out normal (haemoglobin: 125 gm/l, count of wbc: 5.900 x10^9/L and count of platelets: 298 x10^9/L. Her doctors advised doing a lower GI endoscopy for her, which we did, and the results said: At 8.0 cm, 2.0 cm raised lesion bleed easily on touch.
Avatar n tn In addition to this for the stomach pains i have been prescribed lansoprazole in the belief i may have a stomach ulcer thats been with me my whole life as i have always had stomach discomfort, and buscopan to relieve the pain of the cramps. And Maalox suspension for the build up of stomach acid. All of these meds have been useless as they have offered me no relief in any shape or form.
Avatar f tn They aren't what cause the diarrhea. All I know is probiotics make it worse which to think about it. It may be because I was taking the antibiotics with it. I'm prolly gonna have to have a colonoscopy done to see what they can find. My mother believes it could be an ulcer and had me start taking prilosec each day and see if it helps reduce the acid.
Avatar n tn My bowel functions changed drastically after the Laparoscopic Cholecystoctomy. Chronolically, I have loose/watery bowels or diarrhea. I contracted salmonella a while back -- maybe months or year -- I had no idea how long I had it. I took antibiotics to clear it up and since then have been tested again -- negative. The chronic loose/watery bowels and diarrhea continue.
Avatar n tn I've lost about 7 pounds in the last 2 months. What do you think could cause gas, diarrhea with mucus, and loose stools? I get nervous when I see a mention of HIV. Is HIV normally associated with just these symptoms? I don't have a rash or high fever, haven't thrown up. I quit drinking milk and having dairy, that doesn't seem to be the problem. I don't see any blood in my stools. Just diarrhea with mucus and gas. Thanks.
Avatar f tn However, in the past week or so I have been getting a gnawing/burning pain in my stomach. So I'm thinking this might be an ulcer, but can they cause these crazy noises I'm hearing in my stomach and intestines as well as loose stool? I'm going to try and get in with a GI this week, but I would like to hear some opinions on what is going on.
Avatar m tn if you have an ulcer, alcohol could cause bleeding and pain. Any alcohol might be too much. You twice refer to the food and drink you had the night before; how's that working for you? Not so good, so I would question your "diet is OK"...If the pain is above your navel, that is where your stomach is, so check out the diet and possibility of ulcers...and no drinking alcohol until you find out....
Avatar m tn Taking over the counter medications like aspirin and ibuprofen can cause stomach bleeding and ulcers. So care must be taken when using these medications.
Avatar n tn I had a diarrhea for 2 weeks, gurgling stomach, gas, blood im my diarrhea twice over the 2 week period, and small black stools twice during the two weeks. The diarrhea went away but my stools are soft & my stomach still gurgles. Ive never had stomach issues up until today. Can drinking be a casue? Please help Im concerned... Thanks...

Avatar f tn I am down to very little that i can eat, except for once in a while if im feeling okay i may have a Wendy's burger, but no chicken nuggets, I tend to eat alot of pasta with butter and parm cheese, it has put some weight on me but it is okay on my stomach. Try to eat chicken, fish, some red meat, and go easy on the junk food and soda if you drink it and let me know how you make out.
Avatar n tn 99 percent of birth control pills have lactose as an ingredient) Almost immediately, I started to feel nauseas, stomach cramping, diarrhea and a stomach distention that was unreal. I've also put on a few pounds, and I'm a healthy eater for the most part. To make a long story short, my boyfriend suggested that it might be the birth control. The day I got off, I felt so much better, but there was still something not quite right.
Avatar n tn This bacteria is found in stomach area that is strongly linked with gastric and duodenal ulcer. Diagnosis is generally by carbon urea breath test. The bacteria can also cause hives. Treatment is control of acidity, lifestyle changes and antibiotics. Consult a gastroenterologist regarding this. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn In Canada medication is not covered and they do not put people on it immediately unless they are having severe ill effects according to my GP. I have had no symptoms except for recent stomach problems which he says are probably not related?? My stomach problems seem to have occurred at the same time my husband and I started having big financial difficulties a couple of years ago. I am worried because my symptoms seem so varied and ongoing. I have had an upper GI and am taking Pantaloc.
Avatar m tn Have you been eating anything new lately that would cause a food allergy? Did you eat out or travel? I also read that Ulcer medicines can cause mucus in the stool so that could be the reason for this. Also irritable bowel and Crohns disease will cause mucus if it persists. But I think that isn't the case. Let me know if you have any questions. Also, how it goes.
1384961 tn?1279503008 If the blood is dark and you say you have stomach problems it may be inflammation, or a bleeding ulcer, which is not serious. If the blood is bright red, at your age I would say hemmorrhoids. At your young age it's rarely is anything serious, plus, all your tests were normal. The GI will be able to tell you for sure and it won't be anything that can be healed.
Avatar n tn I've been having those symptoms,and my doctor has told me it was an ulcer.It can cause your stomach to burn.Does your stomach burn after you eat?Or is the burning relieved by eating?Do you feel nauseated at times?You should go to the doctor(preferably a gastroenterologist)and have them check you out.
Avatar n tn I get it all the time. It's probably b/c you have a nervous stomach, which thats what gives me diarrhea and lack of appetite.
