Could this be bleeding from an ulcer?

I'm waiting for an consultation with an gastro specialist. The appointment is at least week away (unbelievable, I scheduled 2 weeks ago.....I guess specialists must be soooooooooo busy...sarcastic). I guess in other more developed countries, specialists see over 1000 patients a day while in the US, specialists are so special they see only a handful patients a day and the appointment time is so far off that the patient might have already died. Brilliant!

Anyways, I think it is an ulcer. The antiacids fix most of the problem but at night, I feel like passing out. Like I feel really anemic like if there was some kind of bleeding. This only happens at night and 2-3 hours after dinner (sometimes the symptoms start just before dinner).

I do not have black or tarry stools, and although I feel nauseated and vomiting like...I never actually threw up. Sometimes, the combination of nausea, fainting, irritation near the stomach area is so bad that I have to kneel over.

Does this sound like a bleeding problem? If it was an ulcer, I'd say it was created just a few weeks ago (about 2 weeks to be exact).....would it rapidly deteriorate by now and even cause bleeding?

Also to add to this, initially (for the first week or so)...I only felt burning/irritation right where the stomach is (just below the rib cage). Now it's also starting to feel irritated at the low portion as well (left side of belly button). Not sure if this is some sort of hernia, unrelated, some kind of blockage. My diet has been extremely healthy with lot's of fiber, fresh salmon, fruits etc.

All these problems started after I ate raw organic spinach (unwashed) and a pizza. It was one of those that cause the problems. I knew I shouldn't have ate that stupid spinach especially after all those e-coli outbreaks and ridiculously poor quality control standards.

You may have some issues from the spinach or pizza. I hope the doctor can help you.
