stomach

Avatar f tn Pain from a duodenal ulcer may occur several hours after eating (when the stomach is empty) and may improve after eating. Pain also may wake you frequently in the middle of the night. Pain from a gastric ulcer may occur shortly after eating (when food is still in the stomach). Some ulcers do not cause symptoms. These are known as silent ulcers.
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.
Avatar m tn Do you have a family history of duodenal ulcer. Duodenal ulcer can also be caused by alcohol, nicotine,caffeine,tobacco, taking NSAID's aspirin, brufen e.t.c. The most common cause is the infection with H.Pylori. Does the pain cause you to wake up in the midnight. About fifty percent of patients with duodenal ulcers awake during the night with pain, usually between midnight and three a.m. Duodenal ulcers respond well to treatment, so relax and get yourself checked.
Avatar f tn Has anyone here ever had a duodenal ulcer? If so, can you describer the pain and location of the pain? I'm starting to wonder if my right sided, undiagnosed, pain is potentially from a duodenal ulcer. I've read the symptoms, and they seem to fit my pain, but at the same time they don't. I know, that's a bit confusing. I have an endoscopy scheduled for tomorrow, so this will tell me either way, but I just wanted some personal input.
Avatar m tn Pain in duodenal area (slightly right from the middle of upper stomach) is mostly from duodenal ulcer. Avoid anything acidic: fruits, fruit juices, vitamin C, aspirin (!!), vinegar, wine, also spices, alcohol, caffeine. Some say, that black tea helps in pain.Have frequent small portions, when you eat. If it really is ulcer, it can be diagnosed only with gastroduodenoscopy, and then treated with appropriate drugs.
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 Hi, burning pain is usually due to peptic ulcer disease and it can be referred to the back. 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 f tn My boyfriend has SEVERE SEVERE heartburn. He gets heartburn from weird things like chex mix and the candy whoppers. He was diagnosed with an ulcer when he was just 17 years old...he is now 23 and was just diagnosed with H. Pylori...he has abdominal pain...bad indigestion...and such. Is it possible that he has stomach cancer...and that's the reason for the H. Pylori and ulcer?
Avatar f tn Peptic ulcers can be in the stomach or in the intestines called a duodenal ulcer. I have had one of each (lucky me). Sometimes they will do an endoscopy to find the little sore in the lining and sometimes they will just treat for it. Here's info on peptic ulcers. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/peptic-ulcer/symptoms-causes/syc-20354223.
Avatar f tn Intermittent pain in the region you describe could be due to gall bladder, liver, or duodenal issues. A duodenal ulcer and resultant acidity can cause this type of pain, especially since pregnancy is known to aggravate it. Along with it, you can at times feel a fullness of stomach after oily or spicy meal and maybe a heart burn too. Discuss this with your PCP. You may need medication and diet changes if this is diagnosed to be a duodenal ulcer. Hope this helps.

Avatar f tn I started having GERD/acid reflux symptoms that popped up out of nowhere one day, close to a year ago. I was diagnosed with a duodenal ulcer, based off of symptoms, about 8 months ago. I completed my antibiotics and have been taking Prilosec since. The pain is slightly better...less intense gnawing pain and my stomach is less tender to the touch.
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 Lots of treatments for ulcers. When I had a duodenal ulcer many many years ago my doc told me to do transcendental meditation. Never had another problem with it all the years since, even though I suffer from anxiety. There are also natural treatments for ulcers, including DGL, aloe vera juice, cayenne, licorice, slippery elm, just to name a few. The important thing is, if it's not currently bleeding, would be to see a naturopath to help with this.
494010 tn?1209479957 Pain is so generic that its so hard to tell. He could have an Ulcer (duodenal). He should have some other tests run like an MRI and a colonoscopy. A gastroenterologist is your best bet to find an answer. A GP is not a good idea. Someone who specializes in the stomach and intestinal area is a better bet for a quick resolve. A GP would probably refer you anyway. Unless your insurance instructs you otherwise, I would skip the middle man and go right for the main doctor.
Avatar n tn Stomach pain that comes on right side after eating can be due to duodenal ulcer, liver infection, pancreatic infection, gall stones or gall bladder infection. Take Omeprazole empty stomach in morning and an antacid gel at bedtime. Refrain from smoking, alcohol, fuzzy drinks and spicy food. Consult a doctor. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar f tn m pretty sure it is used to treat stomach and duodenal (intestinal) ulcers, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). That might point you in the right direction. Sounds like you should still see your GP though.
Avatar n tn Hi All, I am a 30 year old male suffering from obssessive thoughts, I had a stomach ulcers 6 years back and i use Rabeprazole 20 mg daily as a maintenance therapy, My GP suggested escitalopram (Lexapro 10mg) daily, after 2 weeks using the medicine i feel much better and my thoughts have come down, however 2 weeks into the medication i started having severe stomach burning sensation especially in the upper stomach behind the breast bone and the center of the rib cage, i recognise its the same fee
Avatar f tn I had an endoscopy and found out I have a large duodenal ulcer with partial outlet obscrtuction.Can I take Amitiza with this ulcer?I was supposed to have a colonoscopy but I couldn't get completely clear.I was put on a drug to help heal the ulcer and a proton pump inhibitor.I just want to know if it is safe to amitiza.I am on opiods so I need it.
Avatar n tn On occasion I get relief from eating. My PCP indicated that it may be a duodenal ulcer. I initially noticed this occurrence after running. I was relaxed and standing in front of the mirror when my stomach just drew up. Any thoughts?
Avatar n tn Gastric pain is more in the middle, if it was gastric ulcus, it would be worse with acidic food, aspirins. If it was duodenal ulcer, it would be more on the right, and worse on empty stomach and at night. Ulcers often go with heartburn and burping. Antacids would help at least a little in ulcer. Can you list some additinal symptoms, when they started, any nausea, chenge in bowel habit or stool color...?
Avatar m tn Famotidine blocks the action of histamine on stomach cells, and reduces stomach acid production. Famotidine is useful in promoting the healing of stomach and duodenal ulcers and in reducing ulcer pain. Famotidine has been effective in preventing recurrence of ulcers when given in low doses for prolonged periods of time.
