Study group discussion: Food, pain and ulcers

How does food relieve pain in duodenal ulcer and aggravate pain in stomach ulcer?

Food reaching stomach causes acid secretion. Therefore, pain increases.

In case of duodenal ulcer, eating causes pyloric spincter contraction, acid is prevented from reaching the duodenum
Therefore, pain is relieved.
