Stress (Definition)

Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more

How does stress increase stomach acid and leads to ulcers?

How does stress increase stomach acid and leads to ulcers?

Ulcers and stress: Tis is a complicated answer but let me try to explain it simply. In periods of stress, there is an over production of two hormones from the adrenal. One is adrenalin, which can stimulate the cells in the stomach to produce more acid. The 2nd hormone is cortisol, which when too abundant, can thin the lining of the stomach thus leading to the ulcer. You also need to rule out other causes.

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.

I know that ulcers are primarily caused by h. Pylori but can stress cause excessive acid buildup in my stomach?

Yes.: The GI tract is full of nerve endings, and stress often manifests in this area...Note how many people get "butterflies in my stomach" or feel nauseated when under stress. Just as stress can hurt you, relaxation exercises can help you heal and support wellness.

Does it happen that people get stomach ulcers from smoking without eating?

Does it happen that people get stomach ulcers from smoking without eating?

Maybe: In days gone bye, we used to advise ulcer patients not to use alcohol, caffeine and nicotine since they increased the acid secretion we all knew caused ulcers. That was before tagamet (cimetidine) and h. Pylori. So if acid can cause ulcers, nicotine might contribute. I'd worry more about COPD and lung cancer than ulcers.

I have Abdominal ulcer and get treated. I have gotten enormous amount of skill on it. Shall I take cup of tea with out spice?

I have Abdominal ulcer and get treated. I have gotten enormous amount of skill on it. Shall I take cup of tea with out spice?

SKILL?: I assume by skill, you mean are able to eat certain foods and stay well? Certainly, there are known trigger food for ulcers and Acid indigestion/reflux disease, and Coffee and hot tea are on the top of the list. So I do not recommend that to my patients, even if they are controlled and "skilled." As, Diet and avoidance of triggers remains the mainstay of treatment! Good luck.

I get really bad pain in my upper abdomen I looked up my symptoms and it's saying an ulcer is it really dangerous if I don't get it look after?

Maybe not ulcer: Get a consultation with your doctor. This may or may not be an ulcer. The treatment is directed to the correct diagnosis. Wrong diagnosis will not be helpful to you. By the way, an ulcer is generally the result of a bacterial problem and it does not solve itself.

Is it possible to get stomach ulcers from chewing gum?

Is it possible to get stomach ulcers from chewing gum?

Not really: In theory at least this can be bad, as excess acid secretion in combination with pockets of damage to the stomach lining may lead to an ulcer. N fact as long as the gum is sugar free (and particularly if it contains xylitol) it is actually good for the teeth and can prevent dental cavities. However some moderation is necessary whichever type of gum he is eating. I'd suggest you limit him to thre.
