Hi im sarah, and im 15 years old. For the past couple days ive been having non stop stomach pains. It started when i got kinda anxious and nervous and it was brutal, it lasted the whole night. Sometimes after i eat it hurts, and when i get mad or worked up it starts to hurt too. Even after i drank water it hurts. Are these signs of a stomach ulcer?

Hello and welcome to e health forum. ‎

Most probably all your symptoms might be due to gastritis or gastroesophageal reflux disorder. ‎

The best way to prevent this condition is via dietary and lifestyle changes. ‎

‎1. Eat slowly by chewing the foods properly. This reduces the amount of air ingested while eating & ‎‎‎also facilitates carbohydrate digestion. ‎

‎2. Pay attention to the kind of food you have been eating lately. This would help identify specific foods ‎‎‎that cause symptoms and then cut down its consumption. Avoiding carbonated drinks and alcohol ‎‎‎should be a priority.‎

‎3. In order to control anxiety and stress, an easy option would be to practice yoga and meditation ‎‎‎techniques.‎

You can try the following medications to reduce your ‎symptoms as follows. ‎
‎1. antacids (Tums, mylanta) can be continued to relieve the acidity. ‎
‎2. Omeprazole will help to reduce acid secretions ; ‎
‎3. Probiotics and digestive enzyme supplements will help to improve digestion.‎
‎5. Pepto bismol – to relieve any abdominal discomfort. ‎

If the above measures are not helpful, you might consult with your doctor, for a physical examination, evaluation and proper treatment.

I hope this helps.‎
