Two patients, 38F and 48 M, were seen within the past two weeks and diagnosed with gastric and duodenal ulcers respectively. Both of them gave a history of pain occurring around 2-3 AM. Epigastric pain is a common problem, and ulcer is a frequently suspected diagnosis. However, most patients with epigastric pain do not have ulcer. It is therefore important to know the types of pain that indicate the presence of an underlying ulcer. None of the patients with daytime epigastric pain seen in the past month had ulcer on endoscopy. However, both the patients with 2-3 AM pain had ulcer.
