Peptic Ulcers: Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis, and Treatments


2. Symptoms of Peptic Ulcers

The most obvious symptom of peptic ulcers is pain and discomfort, which we’ve already mentioned. The pain will be located in the abdomen, typically the upper abdomen, but it can also travel into the back. The degree to which the pain is felt can vary. Very Well Health says it can be “dull, burning, or gnawing;” and that it is less commonly, “intense or stabbing.”

There are several other symptoms like, loss of appetite, discomfort and bloating, weight loss, indigestion, chronic nausea alongside a discomfort of eating, frequent burping, diarrhea, blood in the stool, as well as fatigue or weakness (stems from malnutrition or internal bleeding).
