Possibly: Yes it could be something other than the ulcers, and you should let your doctor know what specific concerns you have so they can be addressed. Hope this helps!

You need to betrayed for, and possibly treated for H Pylori, a bacteria that occurs commonly with peptic ulcer disease. So common some even think it causes ulcers!
