A stomach ulcer is a disease associated with a violation of the mucous membrane of the mentioned organ. The walls of the stomach lose their integrity due to corrosive gastric juice, resulting in ulcers. The disease is chronic, it is characterized by typical symptoms, as well as periods of remission and exacerbation.
Causes of development The main difference between stomach ulcers and other diseases is deep tissue damage. Even after treatment and a rehabilitation period, scars remain on the walls of the stomach. Medicine identifies several factors that contribute to the manifestation of diseases. Quite often, the provoking causes are stress and medication.
Main Symptoms The main symptom of a stomach ulcer is pain. Even at an early stage of development, pain syndrome appears after eating and disappears if you drink water. At first, discomfort is felt only after eating salty, spicy or spicy foods. Exclusion of these foods from the diet leads to the attenuation of symptoms. The person believes that he is healthy and is in no hurry to contact the attending physician. However, soon the discomfort intensifies, a pain syndrome of moderate intensity appears, and problems with digestion of food are observed. The second symptom of a stomach ulcer is heartburn. It is often accompanied by burning or pain in the chest area.
