The discomfort is usually a painful gnawing ache (burning stomach pain), which occurs several days a week, it may occur 2 to 3 hours after a meal and mostly occurs in the night when the stomach is empty. Other symptoms include weight loss, heart burn, poor appetite, burping, bloating (a feeling of fullness in stomach), nausea (stomach upset), vomiting.
