I have a lot of stomach pain when I eat and recently blood in my stool, do I have ulcers?

Possibly: This situation requires immediate attention. See your doctor asap. If you have none, consider an er visit. An ulcer will not cause red blood in the stool. That is a lower GI problem. Ulcers cause black or tarry stools.

What kinds of food to eat if you have stomach ulcers?

Avoid things: That can worsen GERD like acidic foods, spicy foods, peppermint, alcohol and nicotine containing products. But the most important thing is to take your prescribed medications that are meant to heal your ulcers. Also avoid nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs unless your doctors specifically says it's ok.

Please answer! What kinda food to eat if you have stomach ulcers?

Please answer! What kinda food to eat if you have stomach ulcers?

Stomach Ulcers: First of all, visit with your primary care physician for proper diagnosis and/or referral to a specialist (ie. Gastroenterologist). Avoid acidic and spicy foods and drinks, including coffee, sodas, fruit juices and any others that contain caffeine. Also, the "energy-producing" drinks must be on that list since they have large doses of caffeine as stimulants. Go to your md and feel better!

What's the symptoms of stomach ulcers and what to or not eat when you have them?

DEPENDING ON: How many and where in the stomach they are, ulcers can go from no pain at all to painful on an empty stomach to pain when you eat. Stools will turn black if they bleed significantly enough.

I'm experiencing pain in my stomach, anytime I eat it's painful, it's as if there's a ulcer in my stomach, what should I do?

Time to see your PCP: There are multiple possible reasons from gallbladder disease to ulcer type inflammation. The next step is to see your pcp. If you want to try Omeprazole 20 mg a day for a few days until you get in to see them, feel free to give it a try. But even if the pain goes away on the omeprazole, keep the appointment.

My husband was told he has stomach ulcers and everything he eats seems to hurt him what can he eat that won't upset the ulcers?

My husband was told he has stomach ulcers and everything he eats seems to hurt him what can he eat that won't upset the ulcers?

Here's what he can't: Have him cut back on spicy, greasy food, mints, chocolate, alcohol, tobacco, aspirin/Advil/Aleve/other NSAID's, caffeine in any form. Make sure he takes his acid reducer medicine as prescribed, treats H.pylori bacteria if found, and follows up with his Gastroenterologist to ensure the completeness of stomach ulcer healing.

I have a stomach ulcer what can't I eat?

I have a stomach ulcer what can't I eat?

Acidic/fatty foods: In researching this question I found many lists of food to avoid that were completely undocumented & questionable- for example, most lists said to avoid cabbage, which is the food most proven to help heal ulcers! We don't have much science to answer this, but most find it beneficial to avoid acidic foods like citrus & coffee, alcohol & fatty foods. If spicy foods irritate then avoid. See comment:.

What is the best thing to eat when you have gastritis or stomach ulcers?

What is the best thing to eat when you have gastritis or stomach ulcers?

Cabbage and aloe: Cabbage and cabbage juice has been found to have remarkable effects in helping ulcers to heal. A nice discussion of this can be found at http://www. Naturalnews. Com/027454_cabbage_ulcers. Html aloe vera juice is also very helpful. In general fresh fruits & vegetables (other than citrus) tend to be helpful- esp. Apples, kale, kelp & green tea. See http://www.

25.Every time I eat my stomach burns. People say its ulcers and that it comes from stress. Is this a possibility?

Yes, but......: Yes, but it could be a lot of things. Unless the "people" telling you this are doctors who have examined you, trust no one. Go see a real doctor and see what's going on with your tummy. Your primary doctor, a GI specialist or even a local free clinic is a good place to start. Don't wait - go in now. Good luck.

What can you eat or drink with a stomach ulcer?

Lots: You can maintain a normal low fat diet, and drink water, juice, milk, and soy or almond milks. Be careful with fizzy drinks and avoid alcohol. The size of the meal may be a challenge to your ulcer symptoms, start small and increase as tolerated. Coffee and tea in moderation are usually fine if combined with a small meal.

What should I eat if I have a stomach ulcer and what is the best thing to do to make it go away?

No food restrictions: If you have a stomach ulcer its important to know if you have an infection with h. Pylori. This can be determined with a breath test, stool test or endoscopy with biopsy. If positive for infection treatment is advised. A potent acid inhibitor e.g. Prilosec or one of its brethren is necessary to help heal the ulcer. Also, if the ulcer was drug induced then stop taking the offending drug.

Every time I eat or drink I get horrible stomach pains. Was treated for ulcer but it didn't help?

Possible re-ulcer?: Pain is a warning sign, so your symptoms signal a problem. How serious the problem ; what organ (s) is (are) involved will be determined by appropriate medical evaluation--see your doctor. In the meantime, if you're taking nsaid's (aleve, advil) discontinue them now, since you may be describing early signs of an ulcer recurrence. No alcohol too please, ; consider restarting acid blocker medication.

Ulcer: There is no particular diet that is necessary for an ulcer. You should definitely avoid aspirin and NSAIDs. From a food point-of-view, , you should avoid any food which you notice gives you troubles. Be sure to take your medicine and to follow up with your doctor as advised. Good luck.

It depends: It depends on the potential cause, size, location and other factors (infectious vs non-infectious causes). You need to see your primary doctor ASAP, who will determine if you need any diagnostic testing in addition to medical treatment. You may also end up needing a GI referral, depending on the findings and recommendation of your doctor.

Burning in stomach for years only sometimes with certainthings other times I can eat anything and im okdoc said if ulcer I be in extreme pain. True?

True: Heartburn can happen when you feel more stomach symptoms at times than other times. The ulcer would be more consistent, and requires medical care for diagnosis, and best outcome.

Many possibilities: Initial work up could include testing for H. Pylori (the bacteria that causes ulcers), Celiac disease (gut sensitivity to gluten), Food Allergies. Consulting a good gastroenterologist should be part of the plan and how an ulcer could be diagnosed. In the meantime, 'clean' eating (limiting processed foods) and 'probiotics' would be a reasonable plan.
