    Personally I feel there is no reason to worry about it. Ulcers/ erosions could possibly be the varying degree of the same problem which should be easily curable though with regular medication.  However let us see what the others feel about it.

    Hi susan, huh they trie that one with me and now they are paying the price, they put me on Nexium and it's weakened my once strong immunity.  I'm disgusted and feel awful for always being in the doctors, I now am at a different surgery and they are trying to make head or tail of it and can't. PPI's are terrible things I'd advise you not to take them, dreadful things!  Ask for an alternative!
