How To Treat A Stomach Ulcer

Stomach UlcerStomach ulcers are very painful and can cause a lot of distress and discomfort. The common belief was that ulcers were caused by stress, too much of spicy food and alcohol but studies have proved that they are caused by bacterial infections. The Helicobacter pylori bacteria which are found in almost all human bodies and which cause no harm except in the few unlucky ones, burrow into the protective mucous coating of the stomach and together with the stomach acid irritate and inflame the inner sensitive lining causing the formation of open sores on the tissue.

Aggressive use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and aspirin can also inflame the stomach lining and lead to ulcer formation. The stomach acid chafes the open and unprotected nerve endings in the ulcer and gives rise to a constant pain and burning sensation which radiates throughout the upper portion of the body. The pain becomes more intense after eating a meal and in the middle of the night when the stomach is empty.
