First, let's clarify what does it mean stomach ulcer. Gastric and duodenal ulcer is a major medical problem. Both cause pain and digestive disorders in 10% of people, in certain periods of their lives, and after some severe complications, such as bleeding, may be the cause of premature death.

The treatment is of long duration and is mandatory accompanied by a strict diet. If an untreated ulcer slowly erodes the wall of a blood vessel lining, the result is internal bleeding. Vessel is bleeding inside the stomach, and the first sign is rapid fatigue and dizziness, fainting, the feeling of abdominal fullness, followed by haematemesis (vomiting blood) or melena (blood elimination with faeces). Perforation is less common than bleeding complication, its severity is at least equal if not greater, than the bleeding. A perforated ulcer  requires close care, otherwise death can occur within 48 hours.
