Don't ignore that pain in your upper abdominal area

You eat and then you feel pain in your upper abdominal area. You figure it's nothing big, just heartburn.

Think again. You might have a peptic ulcer, a raw area or small hole in the lining of the stomach or duodenum caused by the acid in your stomach, according to the North East Valley Division General Practice in Victoria, Australia.

The best advice is to get to a doctor. Drugs can heal the ulcer. And changes in diet and eliminating smoking and alcohol can also help.
