In this article, you will discover the most common stomach ulcer symptoms. These are the types of ulcer symptoms that typify most peptic ulcers. Note that some people are asymptomatic while the ulcer is developing, so if you experience these symptoms, you should see your doctor.
The most common of the stomach ulcer symptoms is burning stomach pain. Some people describe this as a gnawing type pain, almost like hunger. The reason it can be construed as hunger is that over time the brain will actually link the burning, gnawing pain up with the relief experienced from eating. Nearly all ulcers feel better after eating food. Your brain will subconsciously link these up, so that when you start experiencing stomach ulcer symptoms, your brain will trigger the signal for hunger as well.
Put it this way – it is not normal for an otherwise healthy adult to wake up in the middle of the night with stomach and hunger pains. It is very likely if you are waking up in the middle of the night and need something to eat that you are pregnant, diabetic, have some sort of other metabolic condition, or have a stomach ulcer.
Other common stomach ulcer symptoms include nausea. While many people feel relief after eating, many others also feel sick to their stomach all the time. After all, an ulcer is an open wound in the stomach so it makes perfect sense for you to be sick to your stomach. Long-term nausea is not normal, so see a doctor regardless.
Finally, the other thing is that stomach ulcer symptoms are often inconsistent. The ulcer can heal up (but never really goes away on its own), then get worse, then heal up, then get worse, leading to a constant cycle of symptoms that go away, only to come back later.
