User avatar Hi Vishal Purohit,
Digestive disorders produce an array of symptoms. IE, Peptic Ulcers, are erosions either in the stomach, or small intestine. Typically symptoms are abdominal pain, burning etc., 2-3 hours after eating. Night time pain is common and aggravated by an empty stomach. Heartburn, nausea, and indigestion, etc. are also common complaints. If you have not had an evaluation by a Gastroenterologist for some diagnostic tests to identify the causative factor of your symptoms I would suggest that you do so.
