I never drink orange juice but decided to have a small drink yesterday, it burned my stomach so bad and now it's hurts so bad. Is that a ulcer?

In brief: Orange juice

contains citric acid but it is not strong enough to "burn" unless you have gastritis (generalized inflammation) A gastric ulcer is unlikely to have been "silent" until the range juice!!!! You may be one of those rare individuals who react this way to orange (and other citric acid containing) foods! Hope this helps Dr Z
