I wrote on this site a month or so ago suffering from what I thought was acid reflux. I have been on 20mg twice daily of omeprazole for approximately 8 weeks and my symptoms continued to come and go. I had an endoscopy done last Monday and saw the specialist yesterday who says I have multiple stomach ulcers! He has put me on 30mg of lansoprazole and I have to go back for a repeat endoscopy in six weeks time. There is no h.pylori and I don't take aspirin/ibuprofen etc so he says the ulcers have been caused by stress. My main concern is why the omeprazole haven't healed the ulcers. He says that the ppis only reduce the acid and that the underlying cause ie stress has to be addressed. I am a very anxious person who continually searches the net for information which is making everything worse. My poor husband doesn't know what to do with me. I feel so depressed and don't know how I'm going to get through this. Any help and advice from fellow sufferers would be greatly appreciated. How do you turn off your brain?
