7 Signs of Ulcers

No single cause for ulcers have been found. There are many variables that affect their development. Researchers now know that ulcers are the end result of an imbalance between digestive fluids in the stomach and duodenum. Ulcers are typically caused by bacteria type named Helicobacter pylori.


Risk factors for ulcers include:

  • Excess acid production from gastrinomas
  • Excessive alcohol intake
  • Smoking or chewing tobacco
  • Use of painkillers called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin and ibuprofen

Symptoms of an ulcer include:

  • A gnawing or burning pain in the middle or upper stomach between meals or at night
  • heartburn
  • bloating
  • nausea or vomiting
