(HealthDay News) -- The most common symptom of a peptic ulcer is a dull or burning pain in your stomach, the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases says.
Pain typically is felt between your belly button and breast bone, most often when your stomach is empty. The pain tends to last for minutes to hours, and will come and go for days, weeks or months.
The agency mentions these common causes of peptic ulcers:
- Long-term use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as aspirin or ibuprofen.
- An infection with the bacteria Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori).
- Certain tumors in the stomach, intestine or pancreas.
