• Symptoms

    Symptoms are not always the same for everyone who has a peptic ulcer. Some of the various symptoms are:  

    • pain in the upper abdomen (which may feel worse when fasting and be relieved by eating a meal)
    • vomiting which may contain blood
    • black, tarry stools
    • loss of weight
    • loss of appetite
    • lethargy or tiredness

    If you are experiencing the symptoms above, you may have an ulcer and should consult with your physician.
