Can morphine sulfate cause ulcers?

you mean gastric/duodenal ulcers? They are usually caused by a bacteria (H.Pylori) however they can also be caused by taking excessive amounts of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like acetaminophen (Tylenol) which often accompanies opiate pain killer drugs like morphine sulfate. I was just reading an article, published in '07 Supportive Oncology,which was describing use of Morphine Sulfate topical gel as an effective pain control method for ulcers on the epidermis. I wonder if it would be good for gastric ulcers too.

How do you get an ulcer?

NOT TOO MANY YEARS AGO, the medical establishment believed that stomach ulcers were caused by stress, coffee, spicey foods etc.. Research now tells us that they are actually caused by a virus. Once you develop an ulcer, things like spicey foods, lots of stress, alcohol, poor diet etc... can aggravate a stomach ulcer, but it does not cause it. <<>>
There have been many theories over the years. Current thinking is that it's a combination of a virus and excess acid production in the stomach.
There is no definite way you can get an ulcer, but it is proven to be somehow related to the the infection of helicobacter pylori.

For a complete physical, there is usually bloodwork done. When you eat something, or drink something besides water, this affects the chemistry of your blood. Therefore, the physician will want to get a pure sample of your blood to examine.

If you eat something with a lot of sugar, for example, your blood will show high sugar concentration and the physician will diagnose accordingly.
If you have eat or drink before the physical exam, your blood pressure will increase so that you can not perform well in physical exam.

Why do ulcers make you lose weight?

I've suffered a duodenal ulcer in the past and I lost some weight for two reasons ie the pain I had as masses of food were being passed thorough it which could result in me vomiting and secondly the knock-on effect of a lack of appetite. Besides, the body normally gets stressed with this sort of trauma which burns up more calories.

Is a hole in the inside of your cheek always an ulcer?

Not always. You may have bitten yourself in your sleep or have a canker sore. If it painful, you could try Oragel (or something like it) to help numb it. I like the BABY Oragel best because it is a gel and is easier to put exactly where you want it. If you have the hole for more than a week or ten days and it isn't getting better, you should check with your doctor.
