In brief: Not likely
If it is stomach ulcers you are referring to, this would be a very unusual complaint.
I suppose if you had a severely bleeding ulcer or were profoundly anemic it could cause such symptoms but this would be atypical.

In brief: No
Ulcers and numbness can be related to neuropathy especially in diabetics.
Ulcers don't usually cause numbness however. Check with your doctor.
