Peptic ulcer disease can absolutely change your quality of life. Patients with ulcer disease have chronic pain, nausea, they have difficulty eating because when they eat then, sometimes the pain gets worse. They don't have good quality sleep because they sometimes get woken in the middle of the night due to the pain. So it's something that can be very debilitating. Patients with severe ulcer disease also go in and out of hospitals because of recurrent bleeding. So it's something that can definitely take a toll on your life. And the sooner you get help and the sooner you get it evaluated and treated, the less chance you'll have any other long-term complications.
