Could This Be Ulcers?

I have been highly stressed lately, and my family is afraid I may have stomach ulcers. A week ago I had reflux all day, and after eating dinner I had a terrible burn in my stomach and was very nauseous for several hours. My stomach still burned the next day, and I've had reflux off and on ever since. I feel/am bloated alot, too.

Does this sound like stomach ulcers? Should I seek medical attention?

Thank you.

Could be ulcer. From what I've read, ulcers can cause a bad tummy ache after eating, as can h. pylori infection. You should definitely see a doctor about this. If it is an ulcer, you need to get it treated right away. Hope you get relief from your symptoms.

Re: Could This Be Ulcers?

My younger sister has had stress ulcers once. She said her stomach burned constantly, mine doesn't. It almost feels like having the flu all the time, with much lesser symptoms. I haven't ran a fever, at least not when I've checked. My kidneys started hurting last night and tonight. I thought maybe I was passing a stone, but I've never felt anything like this with the previous stones. I thought maybe it was pregnancy, but I checked and that was negative.

Any other suggestions? What are the typical symptoms of h.pylori? And how is that contracted?
