Our expert says:
It is possible that you have a peptic ulcer and it is therefore, important to consult your doctor for a gastroscopy and possible barium meal. A gastroscopy is when the doctor looks inside your stomach and gut to establish if there is an area of irritation or if an ulcer has formed. Consult your doctor as soon as possible in order to resolve your problem.
