Let's begin with the most common
signs and symptoms of stomach ulcers...
We will start with the most common symptoms of a stomach ulcer. Remember that if you have any form of stomach ulcer, it is highly likely that you are infected with H. pylori bacteria.
If you are worried that you are indeed suffering from the symptoms of a stomach ulcer or a peptic ulcer, then a proper diagnosis by a health professional is recommended.
Keep a look out for these ulcer symptoms - they are common to all types of stomach ulcers caused by H. pylori - including gastric ulcers, duodenal ulcers, and peptic ulcers.
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
