10 Signs of an Ulcer

An Ulcer Sign #3: Heartburn

The juices in our stomach need to be able to break down the foods that we eat so that we can extract the nutrients we need from them. As such, these juices are acidic and corrosive to organ materials. Our stomachs are safe from them, though, because they have a protective lining.

In the case of ulcers, though, these juices can sometimes leak out from the stomach and rise up the esophagus. This causes the juices to burn the walls of the esophagus in a phenomenon that we commonly call heartburn or acid reflux. Remedies are available that help to soothe the symptoms of heartburn.
