Flatulence: Gas (flatulence or bleching) is a nonspecific symptom and could be due to many things- not necessarily an ulcer. If the ulcer turns out the problem, you want to have it treated and that's usually with antacids and sometimes triple therapy if tests positive of H. pylori. To help you better, more history should be taken first. ...Read more
Pain yes, gas no: The gas you produce is a combination of swallowed air and gas arising from the action of gut germs on undigested food. Beans as an example have fucose, a sugar humans don't metabolize, but germs do. Eat a lot, and germ action makes you gassy. Ulcers are just holes in the upper layers of the tissue lining the inside of the gut. ...Read more
My husband has ulcers and reflux problems. On losec (omeprazole). Eats grapefruit-has gas every day. Is this the problem?
Possibly.: Grapefruit has a great deal of acid, and if eaten every day can build up acid in the stomach and result in reflux, but gas every day does not do it, and ulcers are usually from diet and stress. Reflux is usually from 3 main foods; orange juice, chocolate, and tomato products like sauce, etc. Prilosec should stop this, but it is strong and has side effects. See your dr. To be sure of correct use. ...Read more

I have stomach pain when I am hungry. In addition I have constipation too. Does constipation create gas that cause pain? Or is it a symptom of ulcer
Unclear cause: Ulcers typically cause upper abdominal pain and could be associated with nausea and/or GI bleeding. Pain from constipation is typically in the lower abdomen. I'd suggest you address the constipation first with a high fiber diet, stool softeners (e.g. Colace) and fiber supplement (e.g. Metamucil). You may also need a laxative in which case I suggest mom or miralax (polyethylene glycol). Avoid taking asa/nsaids. ...Read more
