Let’s begin with the most common stomach ulcer symptoms…
We will start with the most common symptoms of a stomach ulcer. Remember that if you have any form of stomach ulcer, it is highly likely that you are infected with H. pylori bacteria.
Remember – if you are experiencing any of the following stomach ulcer symptoms, and you are worried that you have a stomach ulcer or a peptic ulcer, then a proper diagnosis by a health professional is recommended.
Keep a lookout for these ulcer symptoms – they are common to all types of stomach ulcers caused by H. pylori – including gastric ulcers, duodenal ulcers, and peptic ulcers.
- Abdominal pain – happens when h. pylori causes painful inflammation of the stomach and small intestine lining. Pain can also be caused by a build-up of gases, and constipation.
- Heartburn – also called acid reflux or GERD. When acid is low, digestion of food becomes slow and difficult. The result is that food sits in the stomach too long and gives off gases that can cause burning sensations in the stomach and throat.
- Anemia – or iron deficiency – is closely linked with an H. pylori infection. When an H. pylori infection has caused low stomach acid, it becomes particularly difficult to digest protein (which contains iron).
- Mild Abdominal Discomfort – typically felt 2 – 4 hours before or after meals
- Bad Breath – h. pylori organisms present in stomach acid create ammonia, which results in bad breath.
- Chest Pain – when H. pylori infection causes inflammation in the stomach, the pain signals from the stomach can reflux into the chest, shoulder blade, and stomach areas
- Constipation – When H. pylori causes low stomach acid, food is not processed properly causing undigested food to be released into the intestine.
- Diarrhea – this may only happen infrequently, or it may happen almost daily, depending on how chronic the infection of H. pylori is.
- Gastritis – gastritis is characterized by an inflammation of the stomach lining. H. pylori uses its corkscrew shape to burrow into, and penetrate the stomach lining, which results in inflammation.
- Nausea & Vomiting – the reason is not clear about why h. pylori causes nausea. It is thought that as the body attempts to rid itself of the infection, the ejection happens through the process of vomiting. These symptoms can sometimes be mistaken for morning sickness in pregnant women.
Secondary, but less common symptoms…
These secondary ulcer symptoms are listed in no particular order, and they could still be important to note. If you are showing any of the symptoms shown above, then some of these secondary symptoms may also be experienced;
- Fatigue or Low Energy
- Headaches or Migraines
- Skin Problems
- Pre Menstrual Stress
- Sinus Problems
- Sleep Problems
- Weight Gain or Weight Loss
If you have any of the above symptoms, then it is possible that you may have a stomach ulcer. The type of ulcer will depend on the symptoms – different types of ulcers have different symptoms.
Different ulcers present different symptoms
There are 7 different types of stomach ulcers and the symptoms are different for each different type of ulcer. For example, duodenal and gastric ulcers have symptoms that are quite opposite, and this can be quite confusing.
Any symptoms of a stomach ulcer seen above should be regarded as a warning signal and should be taken seriously, no matter what type of ulcer you think you may have.
Making sure you have a stomach ulcer…
This is really important because stomach ulcer symptoms can easily be confused with the symptoms of other GI Tract disorders – such as candida overgrowth and acid reflux.
Important Note! You are not obliged to use the treatment recommended by the doctor or health practitioner who has given the diagnosis. Drug therapies are known to have side effects that can be very difficult to cope with. And because they are only around 30% effective, results are never guaranteed.
Click to see the symptoms of bleeding ulcers
Unattended ulcers can start bleeding – and bleeding ulcers can be the most dangerous!
When stomach ulcers have already started bleeding, these are the most likely warning signs to look out for;
- Black and smelly stools
- Nausea or vomiting of blood
- Chest and back pain
- Fainting and dizzy episodes
- No warning or resultant pain
‘NO PAIN’ does not mean ‘NO PROBLEM’ – If you have a bleeding ulcer you may not feel any pain at all – and this can be extremely dangerous!
90% of stomach ulcers are proven to be caused by H. pylori – not by STRESS!
Fortunately, 90% of all ulcers are curable by treating the cause, and in most cases, this will be an H. pylori infection.
If you didn’t already know it already – this is the single most important fact that you should know about stomach ulcers.
No matter what you have been told or what you have read elsewhere – it has been clinically proven using thousands of case studies that Helicobacter pylori is the single most likely cause of your stomach ulcer.
It has also been proven beyond doubt, that when an infection of Helicobacter pylori has been successfully treated, this is naturally followed by healing of almost all types of stomach ulcers. The aim of any successful treatment will be to remove the cause (H.pylori infection).
Just knowing these 2 basic facts and the other important facts listed on this page could save you from months of unnecessary pain and suffering.
By making sure you know the real facts behind ulcers and the most commonly prescribed treatments, it will make it much easier to make an informed decision on which treatment will work best for you.
What most people don’t know about ulcer treatments…
What you don’t know can be harmful – this is why it is important for you to know what you are dealing with when you have stomach ulcer symptoms that require treatment. This includes everything from diagnosis and testing, to safely overcoming the condition and regaining optimal gut health.
Most of the facts you are about to read have never been made public before. Although this information is going to be quite different from what you may have seen elsewhere, we are sure that you will find that having this knowledge will benefit you immediately.
The 10 facts that most doctors won’t tell you
These important facts demonstrate the difficulties that most doctors face. For the most part, they are not openly discussed, yet they are vital to your well-being – as you will see.
Nearly all doctors are fully aware of these problems, and they just don’t have the time to share this information with you in a short consultation;
- H. pylori is the main cause of stomach ulcers- and is getting increasingly resistant to antibiotic treatments.
- Thousands of ulcer sufferers have taken more than 4 courses of the same antibiotic treatment – yet they still have stomach ulcers and H. pylori.
- Practitioners options are limited to antibiotic treatments for H. pylori infections – usually Triple or Quadruple Therapy.
- Doctors cannot guarantee that these prescribed treatments will work.
- Around 65% of people infected with H. pylori will also test postive for Candida Albicans.
- More time can be spent on treating negative side effects, than treating the original stomach ulcer or H. pylori infection.
- Wrong tests done after H. pylori treatment produce false positive results that can result in further unnecessary treatment.
- Drug therapies have widely published side effects that cause many patients to abandon their treatment.
- The ONLY way to effectively treat stomach ulcers caused by H. pylori infection, is to treat the cause of the H. pylori infection.
- Some practioners still believe that stress and too much stomach acid causes ulcers, and prescribe treatments that have no effect on h. pylori.
“The biggest cause of treatment failure is due to patients not completing their course of treatment.”
The side effects many people cannot cope with…
For most people, stomach ulcers and H. pylori issues are first dealt with by a doctor. The most widely prescribed treatment is known as Triple Therapy, and if that does not work then it may be followed by Quadruple Therapy. These are chemical-based and you need to be aware of the following well-documented and widely published negative effects BEFORE you accept these treatments.
These negative effects will vary from person to person and will typically include one or more of the following;
- joint pain
- flu-like symptoms
- stomach upset
- low blood pressure
- kidney damage
- increased liver enzymes
- mouth ulcers
- light sensitivity
- skin discoloration
- shortness of breath
- blood disorders
- loss of appetite
If you feel you will not be able to cope with any of these negative side effects, then we strongly urge you to keep reading….because there is a way to avoid all these negative effects.
When it comes to treatment it is a proven fact that ‘One size does not fit all’… while the most commonly prescribed treatments work for some people, they do not work for around 70% of people.
We want you to be properly informed so that you can make an educated decision on how you can safely regain good health, and without the risk of further stress and/or disappointment.
REMEMBER! The main cause of all types of stomach ulcers is H. pylori – so this is the primary target in the treatment of ulcers.
NO H. pylori means NO Stomach Ulcers!
Stomach ulcers will not go away without eradicating H. pylori first…
Stomach ulcers will not go away without using a treatment that will remove H. pylori first.
H. pylori infections can get worse when left untreated, or when treatments fail! And it’s safe to assume this also applies to stomach ulcers.
So, your best course of action is to make sure you get a treatment that is guaranteed to work the first time around.
Nobody should be taking any chances when their health is at stake.
It’s a fact that diets and supplements will not eradicate H. pylori – at best they may offer temporary relief of some symptoms. The most commonly prescribed treatments have high failure rates and only work for some people – if they are able to cope with the harsh side effects.It’s not impossible… there is an answer!
