Six months ago I started having pain on my right side and was treated for a UTI and Kidney Stone. Thankfully those cleared up. But I was left with some stomach issues that we just assumed were digestive issues from the medication. During all of this I had an ultrasound, CT scan, and bloodwork.
The discomfort was okay some days and some worse, accompanied by bloating. No dire pain, so I lived with it and assumed it would eventually improve. Well, just after Thanksgiving my sisters dogs jumped on my right side and it immediately caused discomfort. So I started thinking that it had to be more than just mild digestive issues. The only thing that could be in there that would not have shown up on the ultrasound, CT Scan, 2 rounds of bloodwork, etc, would be an ulcer, possibly from taking NASIDs during the kidney stone issue. I had some stomach issues about a year ago from the same thing.
I immediately scheduled an appt, but it isn't until March. So after searching online, I started taking 20mg of omeprazole. Felt some improvement after a week. I continued this for approximately 6 weeks. I also started drinking 16oz of cabbage juice daily. Felt tremendously better. Most days felt as though it was completely healed. I'm drank the cabbage juice for 4 days. Then stopped for a few. Then started back 7 days ago. I really thought it was cleared up, but it started bothering me again today.
It causes discomfort, that is most often hard to pinpoint exactly although it's only on my right side, bloating, burping, slight nausea some. Ice cream and fried foods really caused the most discomfort. Does this sound like an ulcer?
