Thank you for posting a query.

Look, your description indicates possibility of gastric ulcer disease.

Now, for this acute pain, you need oxetacaine and sucralfate solution. If this solution does not give any relief within 10 to 15 minutes, then you have to be treated meticulously to prevent any further disease progression.

It would be better to go to emergency room. Because you need a detailed clinical examination. If clinically required, intravenous pantoprazole group of drug should be considered.

So, you should go to the emergency room.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.
