Stomach ulcer. Is there something ig should be worried about?

Hi. I am 19, 5’ 2”, 108 lbs. I’ve had a stomach ulcer for four months before, I’ve started having migraines sometime in December of last year, and I was also diagnose with something called an adjustment disorder , I’m very sleep deprived, I have trouble concentrating, and I’ve also dealt with depression for several years. Lately the top of my head has been feeling weak I guess. It feels like there’s something on top of my scalp that’s applying slight pressure to it. I guess you can compare it to the feeling you get when you have headphones over your head for a long period of time. I’ve been light headed a lot lately, which isn’t new. Is this something I should be worried about? Also,I woke up with a huge migraine and had a sudden urge to vomit , but as always, I just ended up gagging. Could my constant gagging be due to my stomach ulcer that I had? I felt that maybe it messed up my esophagus lining? I don’t know. I sometimes wake up with sore, achy muscles even if I haven’t done anything to make them feel sore. Is there something wrong with me?

Hi thanks for your question.
Most of symptoms you have described could be part of you depression. Stomach ulcer occur due to increased acid production in the stomach and this increased acid can pass from lower esophageal opening into esophagus and can cause what is called ass reflux esophagitis .Reflux esophagitis can give rise to vomiting and constant gagging. Ulcer itself can give rise to vomiting. Tension is known cause for increased acid production, which can cause ulcer.
The bottom line for management your symptoms is anxiety that is tension and depression. Consult a psychiatrist who may be able to manage your primary problem of depression, this will also relive you secondary symptoms of myalgia, headache and ulcer.
Hope this answers your question.

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. It seems like your gagging is related to your migraines, however this behavior is more likely to exacerbate your stomach ulcer. I would recommend that you first take care of your medical problems i.e. stomach ulcer as well as migraines before considering to deal with your mental health concerns, as it is frequently the case that when you treat your medical condition your adjustment disorder gets better as well. I advise you to consult a qualified gastroenterologist as well as neuropsychiatrist to help with your issues.

Take care and have a lovely day!
