Ulcers and Alcohol= Pain?
I am a 22yr old woman and i have gastric ulcers. I have noticed that if i drink certain kinds of alcohol i get terrible chest pains as if someone is standing on my chest. Is this because of my ulcers? This is really scaring me.

Hallo Zaza
Yes, you should avoid alcohol if you have gastric ulcers ( imagine putting alcohol onto a raw sore on your leg...!!) It burns!
