Hello docs. I was wondering can ulcers rupture and cause internal bleeding?

Yes

Bleeding
Bleeding duodenal ulcers are caused by the ulcer eroding through the back wall into the gastroduodenal artery. Perforations in the front part of the duodenum or stomach usually cause free air with intense pain, but usually do not bleed significantly.

Dr. Shaym Puppala answered:

Can a bleeding ulcer be the cause of microcytic hypochromic anemia?

Yes.

Blood
A bleeding ulcer could cause iron deficiency anemia (low red blood cell count). If the bleeding is severe and persists for a while, red blood cells will be small (microcytic) and have relatively less oxygen-carrying hemoglobin (hypochromic). Thanks to M. DiNapoli, med student.

How can I remedy a bleeding ulcer?

See a doctor

Bleeding
I do not know how you would know if you have a bleeding ulcer. Have you seem a doctor or had endoscopy for this diagnosis? Bleeding from ulcers of the stomach can range widely, from minor to severe. Usually medical treatment to lower the stomach acid, and antibiotic treatment if a biopsy or breath test shows H. pylori is present is a starting point.

If you are actively bleeding and have blood in your stool you will need immediate treatment. A small ulcer that is only oozing occasionally still requires treatment. Today ulcers can be treated better than ever so don't wait, be well and heal.

Can i have a drink if i have a bleeding ulcer?

Bad plan!

Alcohol irritates the inner lining of the stomach and increases stomach acid production. Both of these effects may tip one over the edge, leading to life-threatening bleeding. Abstain from alcohol until your ulcer is completely healed (please).
