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).

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.

I had a diagnostic colonoscopy done due to bleeding and they found 2 ulcers in my intestines. Biopsies came back good what is the cause and treatment?
NSAID, etc.: The most common reason for ulcers in the intestines is from nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (nsaids, ibuprofen, naproxen, et.). Other possibilities include crohn's disease, or many other possibilities, including infections. If this is NSAID induced, the treatment is avoidance of nsaids. If this is infection, it will resolve. But if it's crohn's, you need specific medical therapy.See 1 more doctor answer

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.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
