Is it a stomach ulcer?
« on: May 21, 2014, 06:00:23 AM »
Hey, guys. I've had a slight burning sensation under my left ribcage over the past 2 days, (fairly mild) along with passing a lot of gas and some fatigue. Naturally, I've been freaking out about the possibility of an ulcer. What do you think? Does it seem likely?

If it is an ulcer, that is totally curable.  Ulcers aren't usually a slight burning sensation, though.  I've heard them described as a gnawing sensation.  You could also have either gastritis or GERD.  Do you have any heartburn or any other GI symptoms.  Have you taken anything for it like an antacid to see if it makes the burning feeling go away?

I had an esophageal ulcer n 2005, and the burning was severe in my back and was worse when I ate.
The pain radiated from my right side to my back, similar to gall bladder pain. I had no burning in my chest
or throat. It was diagnosed by an EGD.
