Peptic ulcer (Stomach Ulcer)
The ulceration of the gastric and duodenal mucosa is called peptic ulcer. Causes of this disease is not known but heredity, stress and food habits are important factors. Drugs, alcohol, smoking, vitamin deficiencies and hyper-parathyroidism may be responsible for peptic ulcers. The predominant feature is pain which may be burning in nature or dull aching with a sense of discomfort only. In gastric ulcer the pain is epigastric, starts after meals and is accompanied by vomiting and weightloss. In duodenal ulcer, the pain is in epigastrium or right hypochondrium, relieved by meals and not accompanied by vomiting.
Signs and symptoms
*Dull aching pain in upper abdomen, which is related to meals.
Most Common Ulcer Signs & Symptoms are:
Abdominal pain H. pylori can cause painful inflammation of the stomach and small intestine lining. Pain can also be caused by a build up of gases, and constipation.
Heartburn Also called acid reflux, or GERD. When acid is low, digestion of food becomes slow and difficult. The result is that food sits in the stomach too long and gives off gases which can cause burning sensations in the stomach and throat.
Anemia Or iron deficiency this is closely linked with an H. pylori infection. When an H. pylori infection has caused low stomach acid, it becomes particularly difficult to digest protein (which contains iron).
Mild Abdominal Discomfort Typically felt 2 4 hours before or after meals.
Bad Breath H pylori organisms present in stomach acid create ammonia, which results in bad breath.
Chest Pain When H. pylori infection causes an inflammation in the stomach, the pain signals from the stomach can reflex into the chest, shoulder blade and stomach areas.
Constipation When H. pylori causes low stomach acid, food is not processed properly causing undigested food to be released into the intestine.
Diarrhea The diarrhea may only happen infrequently, or it may happen almost daily, depending on how chronic the infection of H. pylori is.
Gastritis Gastritis is characterized by an inflammation of the stomach lining. H. pylori uses it s corkscrew shape to burrow into, and injure the stomach lining, which results in inflammation.
Nausea & Vomiting H pylori causes nausea, but the reason for this is not clear. It is thought that as the body attempts to rid itself of the infection, the ejection happens through the process of vomiting. These symptoms can sometimes be mistaken for morning sickness in pregnant women.
Acupuncture is a painless treatment with thin metal needles being inserted to varying depths, and at specific acupuncture points. The needles are usually left inserted for 15 30 minutes. Acupuncture procedures can normalize certain processes of the gastro intestinal tract.
If your stomach ulcer is caused by an H. pylori infection, foods that are rich in antioxidants may be beneficial. They could help protect and activate your immune system and help fight the infection. They may also help protect against stomach cancer. Fermented foods are rich sources of microbes, such as bacteria, yeasts, and fungi. Eating foods that contain these microbes can restore the balance of the gut microbiome.
