Protective/ excess?: Mucus is generally protective/reactive. Do you have ulcers? Commonly caused by H.pylori bacteria & use of NSAID's as independent risk factors, as are age, tobacco use & prior history of ulceration. Admission to ICU can result in stress-related ulceration, & significant burns (curling's ulcer), head trauma (cushing's ulcer), sheering forces, cancer, acid hypersecretion (Z-E syndrome) are causative.
