However, an inflammatory process in the lining of the stomach causing, which if not treated promptly, may progress to becoming a peptic ulcer.
There are many myths about peptic ulcers. Ulcers are not caused by emotional “stress” or by worrying. They are not caused by spicy foods or a rich diet. Certain foods might irritate an ulcer that is already there, however, the food is not the cause of the ulcer.
