Q. Is it an ulcer? I am worried!
Hi friend, I'm 35 year old male and recently I started to suffer from some strange symptoms I have never experienced. The first symptom was sharp pain in my upper abdomen that starts two of three hours after eating. In the beginning I thought it could be connected with some food intolerance but then I started to get this pain early in the morning, before any eating what so ever and all this was accompanied with nausea, frequent burping and weight loss. I have read some stuff about stomach ulcer and I could say that I poses almost every major symptom. Is there any way for me to be sure that I have developed disease of ulcer?
|A1||There is nothing you could do to check do you have ulcer or not by your self. Anyone who thinks he may have an ulcer needs to see a doctor because over time, untreated ulcers grow larger and deeper and can lead to other problems. So go now to the doctor.|
|A2||Yes, there is a way - GO SEE A DOCTOR! Weight loss, in regard to complains about the stomach is considered a "red flag" that mandates thorough evaluation by a professional. Even if all the signs and symptoms match simple ulcer, it's considered something you should evaluate more thoroughly.|
