Hello! After reading through everyone's post's I wanted to share my own story. It all started 3 months ago with stomach pain and nausea. I thought I had the fly. Then next month the same thing stomach pain and nausea. Went to the ER this time and after checking out my gallbladder told me it was probably a stomach ulcer and sent me home with Nexium and Carafate. Then this month the same thing. So I got in with a GI doc and he did a endoscopy and found 2 stomach ulcers. He prescribed me protonix and pepcid and said to wait for the biopsy (which will take 2 weeks) to see if it's H Pylori or the Motrin I took that is causing my stomach ulcers. The pain was not getting better so today I went to a after hours clinic and they were nice enough to give me a lidocaine solution that I drink tor numb the stomach pain. The lidocaine is about the only medication that helps the awful burning stabbing pain! My doctor said to wait a week and I should start feeling better. It's very depressing because I have missed so much work and I have 2 small children at home who have not seen a lot of me because I'm always sick. Getting tired of bananas and rice but am afraid that anything else may hurt my stomach. How long until you felt better? Also my ulcer pain always flairs when I am on my peroid any one else?
