Stomach Ulcer?

Do you think I could have a stomach ulcer?

I have pretty bad heartburn, my appetite is all over the place - one day I can't stop eating, the next day I can barely eat a thing. My weight is all over the place but oddly, the more I eat, the more weight I lose. If I don't eat much, I put ON weight. Feel sick and bloated quite a lot but i also get this overwhelming feeling of "fullness" as soon as I start to eat anything, especially bread or pastry - one bite and I feel full.

DP reckons stomach ulcer as he's had one and the symptoms are similar?

It could be, or it could also be a hiatus hernia. Both could cause this. It could also be a food intolerence especially if you find it happens more with bread and pastry. Go to your gp and he will refer you to have it checked. I have been through similar recently and it does need to be checked. I lost almost 3 stone with it.
