  • Epigastric pain(gastric ulcer -pain increased with taking food and duodenal ulcer decreased with food intake )
  • Indigestion
  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Hematemesis (blood in the vomitus )

  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
Less common symptoms of peptic ulcer disease include [symptom 1], [symptom 2], and [symptom 3].
A positive family history of peptic ulcer disease and Zollinger Ellison syndrome increases the risk of disease .
A positive family history of MEN TYPE 1 may be present.

IF it makes sense to distinguish between common and less-common symptoms:

  • On the overview page, use a full sentence:
    • Common symptoms of [disease] include [symptom 1], [symptom 2], and [symptom 3].
    • Less common symptoms of [disease name] include [symptom 1], [symptom 2], and [symptom 3].
  • On the History and Symptoms microchapter, use bullet points:
    • Common symptoms of [disease] include:
      • [symptom 1]
