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.
Dizziness
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.
