Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for posting your query. I am happy to address your questions, you should try to reduce mental and physical stress. Try to do exercise daily, it can help in improving your stamina. Improve your diet, avoid junk food and take a more balanced diet though with ulcers as well as reflux it would be affecting your appetite. Take small meals in frequent times. You should also visit your clinician to ascertain if you have not acquired any ailment like anemia (due to XXXXXXX bleeds), diabetes etc. Excess tiredness and Fatigue can be related your lifestyle also. Stress, Lack of Rest, Mental Strain, Lack of Exercise, Poor Eating Habits etc. all can lead to such symptoms. Make sure that you don't have any of those. Wish you good health. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be happy to help. Thanks

I had an uncle who kept getting ulcers like me. I have no idea if there was any stress in his life but he had to have half his stomach removed because of this. could this be my fate? I can't get rid of this stress . It's my daughter causing it ( part of it.) the other is people making up stories about to the police and being framed for crap that i never did. this has been going on for years. My ex-boyfriend plotted revenge against me and it's taking me down. Nobody will listen because my problems are not important or believed. I know the police know they are lying but do nothing but sit on there butts. Maybe i can find some relaxation classes. If i'm allowed out of this house.
