What are the Signs and Symptoms of Peptic Ulcer Disease?
The most obvious sign of a peptic ulcer is a dull pain in the stomach. You may feel like you do not want to eat as a result of the pain. However, weight loss may occur regardless of whether you reduce your daily food intake or not. Other symptoms include bloating, getting full easily, acid reflux, heartburn, nausea and vomiting.
If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to consult with a professional and experienced gastroenterologist. A large number of gastroenterological conditions share the same symptoms.
