Ulcer Pain remedies

ulcer painThe most common cause of ulcer is the invasion of the duodenum and gastric mucosa with a spiral bacteria called Helicobacter pylori. This bacterium decreases the power of mucosal defense against gastric acid.

Similar problems occur after consumption of aspirin and ibuprofen.

Ulcer can be completely asymptomatic, but usually people with ulcer experience abdominal pain. Ulcer incidence is highest at 30 years. The most common ulcers are the duodenal types.

Pain in the duodenal ulcer presents as a burning or painful hunger. The pain occurs in the upper abdomen and may radiate to the back. Pain is often attenuated by food. During the night the pain is more intense.

In gastric ulcer the pain is sharp and gets worse when you’re at the table. During the day it may be more pronounced.

Ulcer symptoms (other than pain): belching, loss of appetite (sometimes appears increased appetite), nausea, salivation (saliva in increased amounts).

Ulcers caused by Helicobacter pylori will not heal until the infection is eradicated, but if aspirin or ibuprofen are the cause of the ulcer then the ulcer will heal by itself after you stop taking this drugs.
