In order to avoid possibly erroneous information please only reply if you've actually been diagnosed (by gastroscopy) with a peptic ulcer, and not just that you (or your doctor) just suspect you have one. Thanks.
My doctor suspects I may have a peptic ulcer and put me on PPI's. In less than a week the symptoms were much releived, after 2 weeks the symptoms were mostly disappeared - I'd gone from constant pain/discomfort to nearly forgetting I had it. So it certainly looked like an ulcer had been the culprit, and that PPI's had fixed it (or more specifically,as I understand, just reduced the acid allowing my body to heal it).
But then in week 3 the symptoms came back, almost as bad as before, even though I was still taking the PPI's.
So is that normal? When you were diagnosed and given PPI's did it just get better in kind of a straight line, or did it get better but with significant relapses?
