Symptoms of Ulcers
An ulcer is a small sore or break in the lining of the stomach or just beyond the stomach in the first part of the intestine, called the duodenum. Once the break occurs it is gradually eroded and deepened by the corrosive effect of acidic gastric juices to form an ulcer. An ulcerous condition may develop quickly or over a long period of time. An estimated 5-10 percent of people suffer from an ulcer at some point in their lives. Ulcers affect people of all ages and are equally common in men and women.
Neuropathic ulcer, well that's a fancy name for leg ulcer... it is an infected area on your leg or foot and results from damage which you could not feel. So really, this is the time when it would be great for you to realize if you have diabetic neuropathy, you should do everything you can to control your blood sugar levels.
The best remedy for healing ulcers, especially gastric (stomach) ulcers is a diet rich in natural green foods - eating plenty of green cruciferous vegetables and drinking vegetable juice daily or as often as possible. Green foods are very healing! Parsley, kale, spinach, broccoli, cilantro, Roamine and green lettuce, watercress, asparagus, etc. are some of the best green foods available. And remember, green foods are naturally antacid without any adverse or negative side effects such as Tums or Rolaids and other OTC (over the counter) drugs.
Symptoms of Ulcers:
o Low grade colic
o Poor appetite, including the horse refusing foods or supplements that were readily consumed before
o Slow eating, sometimes walking away without finishing meals all at once
o Belching noises
o Decreased performance
Mouth ulcers are open sores that appear on the inside of the lips, cheeks, or other parts of the mouth. They may result from trauma caused by excessively vigorous tooth brushing, chewing on foods with hard edges (nuts, pretzels, etc.), eating hot foods, wearing ill fitting dentures, or lip biting. They can also be triggered by allergies to certain foods and food preservatives.

A gastric ulcer or a duodenal ulcer is an open sore in the lining of your stomach or of the duodenum, where acids are found. When you have an ulcer in your stomach, the proper medical term is gastric ulcer. If it is found in the duodenum, it is called a duodenal ulcer.
The most common ulcer symptoms are sourness, pain and burns at the abdominal level. Many people tend to disregard these first ulcer symptoms, considering that their internal discomfort may be due to stress and fatigue. Only when they observe that their abdominal discomfort and pain reappears periodically, people realize that something is wrong.
If a person suffers from a recurrence of ulceration, the time has come to decide between starting on a permanent course of drugs (which can be expensive) or undergoing surgery (which nowadays, unless one suffers from other diseases, is quick and safe). Duodenal ulcers are said to be more common in the hardworking, intense type of person, so if you are one of these, and have lately been experiencing pain in the upper part of the tummy, now is the time to have your doctor check it out.
