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
Every few mos., I get a single sharp pain or throb in my abdominal wall to the right my navel. Not tender, usually when gassy or stressed. Ulcer?
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.
H. pylori & Ulcers: (H. pylori) is a type of bacteria. These germs can enter your body and live in your digestive tract. After many years, they can cause sores, called ulcers, in the lining of your stomach or the upper part of your small intestine. Stress can may any physical or psychological conditon worse. Peace and good health.
Stress affects GI: Functioning, including stomach upset, diarrhea, constipation, increase or decrease in appetite, etc., and it certainly seems to contribute to ulcer activity in many people. But an australian physician discovered in 1982 that the bacterium helicobacter pylori plays a major role in stomach and duodenal ulcers. Manage stress and check with a physician about an antibiotic for stomach ulcers.See 1 more doctor answer
I know that ulcers are primarily caused by h. Pylori but can stress cause excessive acid buildup in my stomach?
Is dyspepsia a symptom of gastritis and ulcer? Can stress/depression about stomach cause dyspepsia?
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?
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.See 1 more doctor answer

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.

However some moderation is necessary whichever type of gum he is eating. I'd suggest you limit him to thre.See 1 more doctor answer
Treatable...: Stomach ulcers are usually caused by either taking anti-inflammatory drugs (e.g. Motrin, ibuprofen, naprosyn (naproxen) or aspirin) or bacterial infection with helicobacter pylori. Treatment of the ulcer includes removal or eradication of the offending agent (e.g. Drugs or infection) and acid suppressive therapy with drugs like Omeprazole (prilosec). Benign peptic ulcers usually heal within weeks.
Suggestions: First of all, try to find ways to lower the stress in your life. Not, always, easy to do. Then, consider a bland diet with little spices, your doctor might suggest a ppi to lower the stomach acid, and they might want to try carafate (sucralfate) liquid to try to help heal the ulcer. Talk to your doctor.
