Cause #9: Ulcers

Peptic ulcers are a relatively common condition that can affect the stomach and other areas of the digestive tract, particularly the duodenum, which is the first bit of the small intestine. Peptic ulcers can be caused by stress, alcohol, heredity, and several other things including excessive use of NSAIDs like aspirin and Tylenol.

The pain from an ulcer will be more serious after eating, especially after eating something spicy. One of the best ways to treat ulcers is by using antibiotics and drugs that deacidify the stomach, as well as making sure to eat alkaline foods.
