2. Can an Ulcer Cause Stress?

Although many medical professionals may think that only stomach ulcers are caused by stress, they do admit that there is evidence that mental stress may make other ulcers, such as peptic and mouth ulcers, worse. Another way stress is involved is because the ulcers themselves cause patients anxiety and stress.

Mouth ulcers, especially, are stressful because of the pain and how this affects eating, talking and drinking. This not only causes mental stress but also social stress since mouth ulcers are more visible than other types of digestive ulcers.
