Symptoms and Causes of an Ulcer
Peptic ulcers include gastric (stomach) ulcers, duodenal (small intestine) ulcers, and esophageal ulcers. Stomach ulcers occur when the thick layer of mucus that protects your stomach from digestive juices is reduced, which causes the digestive acids to eat away at the stomach’s lining tissues.
- An infection with the bacterium H. pylori
- Long-term use of aspirin, ibuprofen, or naproxen (NSAIDs)
- Zollinger-Ellison syndrome which increases the body’s production of acid
- Burning sensation or pain in the middle of abdomen
- Dull pain in the stomach
- Weight loss
- Loss of appetite due to pain
- Nausea or vomiting
- Feeling easily full
- Burping, acid reflux, or heartburn
- Pain that improves when you eat, drink, or take antacids
Avoiding an Ulcer In the Future
Ulcers are a common but irritating issue many people go through each year. In order to keep yourself from experiencing an ulcer in the future, try following these tips*:
- Lower the amount of pain-relieving drugs that you consume on a regular basis, such as over-the-counter ibuprofen*
- Avoid direct contact with those who already have an ulcer, such as through kissing or sharing food*
And watch out for these risk factors, which do not cause ulcers but could make them worse*:
- Limit alcohol intake
- Limit spicy foods
- Watch your stress levels
Your Different Treatment Options
While you are going through the treatment another doctor may give you, we may be able to consult you on dietary options and help you avoid harsher symptoms of an ulcer as you deal with it. Discovering factors such as alcohol intake and controlling your love of spicy foods may make the pain in the ulcer less severe than it could be.*
An ulcer is not caused by a high level of stress, but can be exacerbated by it. We will work with you and your partner or your family to lessen the stress you may feel at home, and encourage healthy ways to regain control of your life, such as through meditation or exercise.*
Through our massage techniques, we may be able to direct blood flow to another area in your body and lessen the amount of stomach acid flowing through you.* As we utilize the relaxation techniques at our disposal, you may feel more at ease when dealing with the symptoms of your ulcer.*
