Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you.
Ulcer is not diagnosed with sonography.
Ulcer is diagnosed with endoscopy.
For relief of ulcer pain, you need to take antacids and antiulcer medications.
If endoscopy shows ulcer, then you should also get tested for H.pylori infection.

I hope that answers your question.

Hi XXXXXXX thanks for your reply. My concern is if I have ulcer I should be in pain for 24 hours. Its not the case here.. The pain arrives when I am hungry and stays for 1 or 2 days...
I am confused now. I have the test reports and urine test report which is normal apart from 5MM calculus in right renal.

Are you bangalore based? if yes I am happy to bring my reports to consult you. Please let me know. And Please suggest some antacids and antiulcer medications.

Thank you.

Hi,
You need not have pain round the clock if you have ulcer.
Endoscopy may be done to see whether you have ulcer.
I am not Bangalore based.
For renal calculus you can consult an Urologist.
You can take Adiza once daily before breakfast and Syrup Digecaine 10 ml 3 times a day.

I hope that answers your question.
