Gastric ulcer may also be due to frequent or long-term use of NSAIDs, or NSAIDs, a group of drugs that help relieve pain and inflammation. Both substances can damage the fragile lining of the stomach, making it more vulnerable to acid damage. The most common symptom of gastric ulcer is abdominal burning, which improves with the increase of food. Other symptoms or signs may also occur, such as bleeding, nausea, vomiting and weight loss.
