Stomach Ulcer(Peptic Ulcer): Symptoms and Causes

Nausea and Vomiting

Stomach sores develop as irritation to bacteria or harmful substances and may hinder food passage leading to bloating, nausea and vomiting. A bleeding ulcer may also trigger feelings of vomiting.
When an open sore in the stomach, small intestine or esophagus is left untreated and made to worsen, it may progress to a bleeding ulcer. A bleeding ulcer leads to significant blood loss, which may cause dizziness or
lightheadedness [6]. Dizziness occurs when new cells’ production level unmatches the number of red blood cells being lost to replace.
Back Pain
Peptic ulcer causes burning pains in the abdomen and chest; however, it may extend to the back on rare occasions. It is a burning or gnawing feeling usually triggered by an empty stomach and may for several hours. Pain [7] in the back relating to peptic ulcers may cause sleepless nights.
