For the past few months or more, I’ve experienced a dull, hunger type pain in my upper abdomen between my breastbone and belly button. This pain is relieved by eating. Thinking it may be an ulcer, I took the OTC 14 day Omerprazole treatment to no avail. Then, a few week ago, I noticed my stool was almost solid black and tarry like. This only lasted a day or two but prompted a doctor’s visit. I’ve been having frequent loose stools as well especially in the afternoons. I described all of this to my doctor and he believes it to be an ulcer. He prescribed me Protonix. I’ve been on this for 2 weeks and nothing has changed. Last night I developed pain in my mid to upper back area but beneath the shoulder blades. This pain is still there this morning. I’m not sure if this all of is related but do any of you have any thoughts? Thanks, John
