Possibly, yes!: Duodenal ulcers often cause a gnawing pain in the upper stomach area several hours after a meal, and patients can often relieve the pain by eating. Many patients also have heartburn. Gastric ulcers may cause a dull, aching pain, often right after a meal. See your physician or a GI specialist for an exam and testing. There are other considerations to consider as well. If the pain is severe: ER
