Stomach, Gastric or Peptic Ulcer
Hyperacidity leads to stomach ulcer. The reason for
hyperacidity is hurry, worry and curry (spicy food). If hyperacidity is
not treated on time, it leads to a broken inflamed portion of the lining
or mucosal membrane of the stomach. The ulcer will usually be small and
situated near the point where the stomach opens into the duodenum on the
lower posterior wall.
The symptom may be pain felt either at the front or
in the back, which may be more severe before a meal. There may be nausea
and a feeling of bloatedness after meals. Some drugs, particularly
aspirin, anti- inflammatory drugs and cortico-steroids encourage the
formation of an ulcer.
