In brief: Reason for question

Are u having problems now you think are due to ulcer? If so, get checked.
It could be something else. Smoking, stress and large amnts of sugar or alcohol can irritate ur stomach. You may have noticed that certain foods, habits or activities make your stomach feel bad, and avoiding those things is obvious to do. Hx & exam cann tell u if meds to prevent ulcer r a good idea for u.
