I quoted from health care website as below:-

Common Gastric Ulcer Symptoms

Gastric ulcer symptoms are similar to those of other ulcers, but for proper diagnosis, get the medical evaluation done by your doctor. Based on the evaluation, medical history and reports, the doctor can give the correct medication.

Heartburn is one of the most common gastric ulcer symptoms, and you can feel the pain as a burning sensation behind your breastbone. The other symptoms include unintentional weight loss, fatigue, nausea, abdominal digestion, blood in the stools, tarry stools and black or loose bowels.

In addition to these gastric ulcer symptoms, you may also feel abdominal pains sometimes that will wake you up from the sleep. This sharp pain usually lasts between half an hour to three hours and is also termed as indigestion or heartburn. The pain is usually experienced in the upper abdomen, but may also occur just under the breastbone. The pain is relieved with antacid or milk. The gastric ulcer symptoms become worse 3-4 hours after the last meal in the night because excess stomach acid secretions cause ulcers pain to the gastric ulcers when the stomach becomes empty. It is however important to note that the gastric ulcer symptoms vary from person to person. Some people experience pain immediately after eating. If the stomach ulcer causes lots of inflammation, it can cause blockages. Some of the complications can be anemia, cancer, stomach or intestinal rupture, stomach or intestinal bleeding, inflammation of Pancreas, bile ducts or liver, and bowel obstruction or blockage.

To deal with gastric ulcer symptoms, it is important to make some changes in the lifestyles and dietary patterns. Never starve yourself, and take 5-6 small meals throughout the day. Avoid caffeine, fatty foods and alcohol.
