Ulcer That Has Lasted 3 Days?
Hello,. I want to ask, since Wednesday afternoon, my stomach has recurred. Then I took ulcer medicine, it was cured. The next morning, I had quite severe diarrhea. After I took the medicine for diarrhea, a nausea that didn’t go away. According to my mother, it was because of an ulcer. Finally I took ulcer medicine 3 times a day before eating. The next day which is Friday, my stomach still feels bad. As pain in the stomach, but not as bad as an ulcer is recurring. Then last night, when I was going to sleep, my stomach was very painful. This morning when I woke up my stomach felt better. But after breakfast, I feel sick again. And this afternoon feels sore again, now even sometimes feels sore. Is it natural for an ulcer to continue like this? Sorry, it’s usually me if the stomach ulcers never recur more than a day. Thank you
Hello Fatma, thank you for asking.
Actually, heartburn is Dutch for stomach. Therefore, people often use the term ulcer to refer to all disorders of the stomach. Stomach disorders actually vary, for example gastritis, peptic ulcers, or GERD. Gastritis is very common in society, and can occur acutely or chronically. Acute gastritis usually lasts several days or weeks. Chronic gastritis can last for several months or even years.
Disturbance of the stomach is caused by inflammation of the stomach wall. In severe cases, this inflammation will continue to become ulcers (sores). A normal stomach has a protective layer that protects the stomach wall from being damaged by acidic stomach sap. In people with gastritis, the protective layer is damaged, so that gastric sap damages the stomach wall.
Symptoms include pain that is described as burning, burning, or being pricked. Pain is felt in the upper abdomen of the middle, left abdomen, along the chest, or up to the back. In addition there is also nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bloating, frequent belching, and decreased appetite. This can take several days. Symptoms are especially felt when the stomach is empty or just when you just eat.
Gastric problems are generally caused by bacterial infection Helicobacter pylori. In addition, wrong diet, unhealthy foods, alcohol or caffeine consumption, smoking, psychological stress, and certain chronic diseases, can also trigger stomach inflammation. Consult this matter with an internist. You may need to take medication for several months under a doctor's supervision. Improve your diet and lifestyle. Choose the type of food that is not greasy, not preserved, and easy to digest.
Thus the information that I can give, I hope you recover soon. Regards.
