Colitis: You possibly have ulcerative colitis. It's an inflammatory bowel disease. There is chronic inflammatory condition in the intestine. Patient will present with chronic diarrhea at various severity (1- > 10 loose stool bowel movements daily) and possibly with blood. Can be quite debilitating without treatment. Educate yourself and discuss/work closely with your gastroenterologist.

Intestine (Definition)

The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more

Can a stomach ulcer cause bowel problems? Constipation/loose stool/cramping/gurgling/bloating/pain in lower left abdomen?

Can a stomach ulcer cause bowel problems? Constipation/loose stool/cramping/gurgling/bloating/pain in lower left abdomen?

No: All GI complaints mentioned are totally unrelated to a stomach ulcer. The latter produces upper midline abdominal pain relieved by food or antiacids and if perforating posteriorly into lesser sac, the space behind the stomach, back pain develops. Constipation or loose stool related to diet or inflammation of bowel and if in sigmoid colon with diverticular disease. Lt. lower abodiminal pain noted

Faecal Calprotectin result of 101 mg/kg. Ulcers found in small intestines with wireless endoscopy tablet too. What does this mean?

Faecal Calprotectin result of 101 mg/kg. Ulcers found in small intestines with wireless endoscopy tablet too. What does this mean?

I presume you are: A parent asking about the results of your 4 year old child. Both of these results suggest inflammatory bowel disease, likely Crohn's Disease in the small intestine.Fecal calprotectin is a measurement of neutrophils/white blood cells in the intestinal lining which is associated with inflammation as is ulceration. I presume the doctor that performed/ordered these tests is advising you and can explain

Hi I have been suffering with ulcer on my small intestine Dr but me on pantoprazol 40mg two times a day it's been 3weeks know and I'm still hurting?

Ulcer: If this ulcer was the cause of your pain it usually would be improving by now on pantoprazole. If you have been taking the medicine regularly and are not improving, you should return to your doctor for further advice. Good luck.

Had a egd done dr said he found extra channel to small intestine he said probably from a ulcer I'm confused?

Had a egd done dr said he found extra channel to small intestine he said probably from a ulcer I'm confused?

A double pylorus: I suspect you have a "double pylorus". The pylorus is the part of the stomach leading to the first part of the small intestine (duodenal bulb). A double pylorus most commonly occurs as a result of a complication of an ulcer--the ulcer penetrates into the duodenal bulb creating a second opening to the small bowel. Less commonly a double pylorus is congenital meaning you were born with it.

What drug suitable to heal the wound in intestines caused by peptic ulcer?

OTC meds?: First be sure the diagnosis is confirmed by a doctor. There is a bacteria that can cause stomach ulcers and you should be checked for this. If that is negative then OTC meds that can be used include ranitidine (Zantac), Omeprazole (Prilosec), Pantoprazole (protonix), tums (calcium carbonate).

Can you use a heating pad to relieve pain from an ulcer in the intestines and stomach?

Can you use a heating pad to relieve pain from an ulcer in the intestines and stomach?

Ulcer pain: A heating pad is not going to help with ulcer pain. The relief for this kind of pain is avoiding spicy and greasy foods as well as high acidic foods. Medications like Zantac (ranitidine) and Prilosec as well as antacids like Mylanta can help to heal and sooth an ulcer. Most important is you see an MD, be sure you have an ulcer and then be treated under the care of the MD. Going it alone is a bad idea.

Can ulcers in the stomach, duodenum, and/or intestines cause these locations to become permeable to any degree?

Yes: Ulcers are the result of the loss of the normal protective lining...Permeability will increase until the ulcer heals.

I have twisting pain in my intestines. When I eat greasy foods or drink milk I become nauseated and then throw up. Could this be an ulcer?

I have twisting pain in my intestines. When I eat greasy foods or drink milk I become nauseated and then throw up. Could this be an ulcer?

Maybe: This could be the case. Also, could be due to gall bladder dysfunction or gall stones. Many people who have symptoms with greasy/fatty foods can find that the gall bladder is involved.

Does Carafate (sucralfate) help heal ulcer from non-infectious ulcer (i.E. Prior pancreatitis damage) in stomach/upper intestine for non-alcohol drinker.?

Does Carafate (sucralfate) help heal ulcer from non-infectious ulcer (i.E. Prior pancreatitis damage) in stomach/upper intestine for non-alcohol drinker.?

Yes: Carafate (sucralfate) heals ulcers no matter the cause. It coats the stomach where the ulcer is located and protects the stomach from the acid environment. You would be wise to add an h2 blocker such as ranitidine as well.

Egd Monday showed moderate gastritis & peptic ulcers. Biopsies taken. Now my intestines burn, too. Very tired. Low appetite. Is it norm this far out?

Egd Monday showed moderate gastritis & peptic ulcers. Biopsies taken. Now my intestines burn, too. Very tired. Low appetite. Is it norm this far out?

Gastritis: With that amount of inflammation and your fatigue, I would be concerned about occult bleeding with resultant anemia and low iron levels. Perhaps you've already been checked for these. If so, other blood testing should check thyroid status. Inflamed stomach lining could account for diminished appetite. Medication like nexium and dietary measures are effective treatment for gastritis and peptic ulcer

Brother has polycythemia vera and on serial baby aspirin. Developed ulcers in small intestine. Can he substitute the baby aspirin with something else?

Try flexible dosing: Consider enteric coated baby aspirin and always take with food, never on an empty stomach. You may consider taking the aspirin less frequently ie. Every other day or 3 times a week.

Colonoscopy found tiny ulcers in my small intestine doc questioning if Crohn's can this be if after iron infusion I now have normal CBC and iron level?

Colonoscopy found tiny ulcers in my small intestine doc questioning if Crohn's can this be if after iron infusion I now have normal CBC and iron level?

Small or large?: Doesn't really make a lot of difference, but I suspect colonoscopy found ulcers in large intestine and your doc felt they might look like crohn's. A good response to iron infusion does not change any of the thinking about whether those lesions are crohn's like. The biopsy should give a lot more information.

What can cause ulcers in middle section of small intestine? Accompanied by blood & mucous in poo. With stomach cramps

What can cause ulcers in middle section of small intestine? Accompanied by blood & mucous in poo. With stomach cramps

Small intestines: Lesions in the small intestine are difficult to diagnose and often the patient has to swallow a camera like capsule to demonstrate it. Causes of ulcerations there can be difficult to identify. Medications like aspirin, Advil and Aleve are causes. Sometimes the bleeding lesion is caused by a vascular malformation which simply bleeds like a nose bleed. Your gastroenterologist is best qualified
