Peptic Ulcer Symptom and Treatment: Shortness of breath in ulcer. Do you have any remedy for this problem?

Shortness of breath is a symptom associated with peptic ulcer. If shortness of breath is happening due to ulcer, it is necessary to treat the main cause (peptic ulcer) rather than just the symptom (shortness of breath). Peptic ulcer, also known as stomach ulcer or gastric ulcer, is caused by the infection of Helicobacter pylori bacteria. The bacteria breaks down the protective mucus membrane that lines the walls of the digestive system, making the stomach walls vulnerable to acids and digestive juices in the stomach. Besides the bacterial attack, peptic ulcer can also be induced by certain other conditions - frequent intake of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) like aspirin, ibuprofen, and other analgesics; smoking; and excessive drinking of alcohol. Other symptoms of peptic ulcer, besides shortness of breath, are: an excruciating pain in the abdomen between the breastbone and the navel, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, weight loss, tiredness, weakness, and traces of blood in stool or vomit.
