Anyone that has any significant acute abdominal pain, nausea, that progressively gets worse over a few days should be seen by a physician, because peptic ulcer disease is definitely something that’s on the differential. And if you wait too long, it can lead to a catastrophic event such as a internal hemorrhaging and bleeding and perforation and even death. The common symptoms of a peptic ulcer include pain, irritation, nausea, loss of appetite. Sometimes patients exhibit, you know, reflux symptoms. These are all things that should be evaluated by a physician if you do have them, because you could have an ulcer and if it’s not caught early, it could lead to further complications such as bleeding.
