What are the symptoms of Stomach Ulcer?

The most common symptom for stomach ulcer is a constant discomfort in the stomach. You may feel a sudden pain in the stomach that may come and go for no apparent reason at all. This will carry on for a few days.

The pain will subside once you have eaten something.

2 to 3 hours after you have eaten, the pain will gradually start again.

There is no pain just after you have had your dinner, but the pain reoccurs in the middle of the night / towards morning.

The pain will subside immediately after taking an antacid.

Also be alert when you notice sudden loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting. It need not be due to stomach ulcer, but if any of the other symptoms accompany it, get medical attention immediately.

home remedies for stomach ulcer

1. Everybody suffers from gastric problem at some time or the other in their life-time. This leads to ulcers if you do not take precautions on time. It mainly occurs as the good bacteria are destroyed by the bad bacteria. Helicobacter Pylori is the bacteria that are mainly responsible for stomach ulcer. It can also happen due to weakening of the stomach lining that is covered with mucous. The mucous lining protects the stomach from the acid that is present in it. Excessive acid production, smoking and using too many medicines are the causes of ulcer. Apart from medicines, it is effective to use natural home remedies for stomach ulcer.
