I have had ulcer symptoms ( gnawing stomach at night, some times acid reflux, abdominal heat in my upper stomach and lower intestines area) off and on for years but it has gone a way or rotated those symptoms for sometime also. But I recently have had a period of no symptoms and then after about two months of feeling good. I have slowly had more and more frequencies of those symptoms again. But this time they are mild to where I can usually go back to sleep. I’m confused because I have had a scope back in Nov and it showed no ulcers and I have never had any bleeding , vomiting, blood in stool, or major pain. I have had precancerous polyps removed from my intestines and I have non celiac gluten sensitivity or celiac. They are not sure due to being gluten free for 6 years. I’m lost on how to get these ulcer like symptoms away. I have been on peptic meds or acid reducers and those didn’t seem to make much difference. I don’t really have acid reflux during the day or much at night anymore but still the mild gnawing. I have a restricted diet. I do not eat gluten, eggs, dairy, and no meat besides fish. This is what I feel had reduced the symptoms but now It feels something is still off. I just don’t want to get cancer from this stuff 😞 any suggestions?

      Hi! I’ve had ulcers a couple of times and would HIGHLY recommend taking aloe Vera gel, my nutritionist put me on it and it was a life changer.

      I had peptic ulcers that my gastroenterologist said it was caused by overuse of nsaids (ibuprofen, advil). I took a trial of antibiotics to treat the h pylori and acute gasritis. Anyways pepcid complete was the best solution for my upset stomach in the mornings. I am basically weaned off it for now and feel less nauseas. Also you need to limit stress which can be a challenge due to work and obligations. But so important you need support from family and friends! I hope this helps you.

      I have Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity which caused me Peptic Ulcer Disease, including a duodenal ulcer that bleeds if I eat against my diet (FODMAP and GERD). Definitely talk to a GI doc and see about getting a colonoscopy+endoscopy.
