What were your symptoms of your peptic ulcer?

Comment from: salty, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: March 13

I had a duodenal bleeding ulcer about 28 years ago. It was horrible; I am suffering the same symptoms now. Do I run to the emergency room again? It is very painful, the same nausea, burping, pain in my upper and lower abdomen, and bloating pain right through my back. I am a 51 yr old woman.

My partner has a peptic ulcer. He has had this for about eight years. He gets very sick twice a year with rapid weight loss. He is waiting for a hospital appointment.

Stomach ache comes back 30-45 minutes after eating. Also, I pass more gas than usual. Belching is more common, but there is less burning sensation in esophagus than I have had in the past.

My ulcer attack started after drinking coffee one morning. My stomach felt like it was being strangled. Sitting put pressure on it and was very uncomfortable.
