Can anyone here please tell me what the symptoms of an ulcer are?

Do they take a long time to develop or are they acute?

Stomach has been huring bad for about 2 weeks

It's gotten worse over past few days, can't keep food down, throwing up w/h some blood in it.

No health insurance.

Any advice? Any help?

Re: Ulcer?

Ulcer symptoms are extremely acute. The pain is usually left side near the bottom of the rib cage, and it occurs either immediately after eating, or when the stomach is empty. Tums usually relieve the pain temporarily, but you need antibiotics to cure it.
