8 Warning Signs You May Have an Ulcer

7. Heartburn, Indigestion 

Someone with an ulcer may suffer horrible indigestion and gastrointestinal pain, which can cause hiccups and abdomen after a meal.

8. Flu-like symptoms

Most ulcer sufferers will have flu-like symptoms, such as fever, nausea, exhaustion, and malaise that do not dissipate within a few days.
