Pain/nausea: Symptoms of peptic ulcer can vary, but most common symptoms are burning or sharp pains in upper stomach, usually worse before and after meals. They can be caused by use of Aspirin or Motrin and other nsaids. If not treated, they can cause internal bleeding, which need medical attention. Go see your physician.
