I don’t know what happened but if I don’t eat at the suppose time, I feel sharp pains in my stomach and later on I discovered I can’t eat some kinds of food like pepper, beans, orange, pineapple and they were my favorites.

What is this?

Yaya….it is called PEPTIC ULCER. It is basically because of the exposed sore that grows in the inside lining of your stomach and the upper portion of your small intestine.

Its occurs in two ways….

Gastric ulcers: occurs in the stomach.
Duodenal: occurs in the upper portion of the small intestine.

By starving yourself when you are supposed to eat, due to this fact the digestive tracts eat away the small intestine and inner surface of the stomach which leaves an open sore. The stomach always releases acids and enzymes which affects the open sore and causes pain and makes it severe.
