“I have constant pain in my upper abdomen.” “The pain is excruciating after having a meal.” “There is dark blood in my stool.”
This or a similar experience is what ulcer patients report with regard to their agonizing condition.
In the case of an ulcer, the mucous membrane has a defect in a defined area. The stomach acid then attacks the deeper mucous membrane layers, which can cause excruciating pain. Intensified pain after a meal is a sign of a stomach ulcer and the lessening of pain after a meal signifies a duodenal ulcer. In both cases, nausea or vomiting can occur.
It doesn’t matter whether the cause is excessive stomach acid, chronic inflammation, the influence of the helicobacter pylori bacteria or the result of a specific medicine.
