Ulcers/Celiac Disease
I have read a few comments on Stomach Ulcers or H. pylori bacteria that look like microscopic squid. It is usually caused by medication and smoking but other factors can apply. Last year I ignored my stomach irritations because I have Celiac Disease (gluten allergy). I woke up one morning and was vomiting nonstop.  I went to the Emergency Room was admitted and stomach Ulcers were found. Left unchecked for another week they would have been bleeding. I lost a friend due to a stomach Ulcer because he ended up bleeding out. Yes, this might sound scary but when you feel something not right. Get it checked out! I recommend anyone who has to get an endoscope, ask your doctor to take blood work and biopsy for Celiac Disease. One of the most hidden but upcoming awareness. There are up to 257 symptoms. 1 out of 130 people have it and don’t know it. It is hereditary. It can do major damages to any organ in your body. But it is fixable by a gluten free diet. Do not go on a gluten free diet without getting tested for Celiac Disease first! One last comment I have not seen or read as of yet. Back to the Ulcers. If you have the H. pylori, it is contagious! Watch the kissing :)
