Peptic Ulcers - Part 3
Gastric ulcers (those in the stomach) and duodenal ulcers (those in a tube connected to the stomach, called the duodenum) are usually referred to as peptic ulcers. Peptic ulcers can cause a variety of symptoms, and these vary from patient to patient. Some patients with ulcers have minimal, unusual, or even no symptoms at all. Others may have every symptom. It is also important to remember that the symptoms listed below can occur as a result of other conditions, not just duodenal or gastric ulcers. These include gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), chronic dyspepsia without the presence of ulcers (often called non-ulcer or functional dyspepsia), gallbladder disease, liver disease and other disorders. Once again, if you are concerned about your symptoms, it is important that you see your doctor about your stomach problems.
