Ulcer but not h. pylori?
« on: February 23, 2014, 06:09:57 PM »
Can you get an ulcer and not take NSAID drugs, or have h. pylori?

Like, can an ulcer really be caused by stressed? The internet seams mixed about this.

Anyone?

It's extremely rare. If you are having stomach issues,  Talk to a doctor. A lot of anxiety suffers have tummy issues.

The answers I get from doctors is that no stress itself cannot cause ulcers but can exacerbate symptoms of an already existing ulcer.

Anxiety causes a lot of nasty GI problems. The GI tract is one of the first systems to respond due to elevated levels of stress.
Which tests has your doctor done? Stomach pain can be very uncomfortable and difficult to manage but the level of pain is generally not an indicator of the seriousness of a condition. Think of when you have terribly painful abdominal cramps when you are gassy.

I would continue with the tests.

H.Pylori really isnt that big of a deal, its estimated that 1/2 of the population has it, its just most never become symptomatic. I was actually hoping I had it when I went to the GI doc for my GERD. All you end up doing is taking antibiotics for a week or two and you're good to go.
