My peptic ulcers are caused by drinking beer on an empty stomach for long periods of time.

I had been taking one or two ibuprofen every night at bedtime for a year. I never read labels. This is what the doctors say caused my bleeding ulcers but some of my family members had kept me in a hysterical state of upset and anger all that time.

The cause of my peptic ulcers was due to my use of aspirin.

I have had to take aspirin on a regular basis. After trying many different meds for headaches, the aspirin is the only thing that helped. Unfortunately, I have developed duodenal ulcers with nausea and abdominal pain.
