Hi,
Thanks for writing in.
The most likely cause of your symptoms could be a exacerbation of irritable bowel syndrome. However it would be advisable to rule out infection. Therefore I would advise you to get a stool examination done along with a CBC. If the stools are blood stained or foul smelling then that may require a course of antibiotics.
In the mean time I would suggest you start
Sucralfate susp 1 tablespoon after meals three times aday.
Rest you can continue the same protocol which you are already doing.
Except that avoid sleeping pills as far as possible.
I hope this answers your querry.
With regards

I have been diagnosed with an Ulcer right at the bottom of my stomach into the intestine. I am taking sucralfate 1 gram tablets, This morning I woke up and the pain was horrible. I took Mylanta which I ended up taking the whole bottle in a 4 hour period and the pain still wont subside. I have drank some chicken broth and had jello the pain still wont go away. I just consumed a whole roll of tums and the pain still wont go away. 15 min prior to the tums I tried baking soda and water mixture but no help there. Im now drinking chamomile tea and to yet no relief I honestly feel like my stomach is being ripped apart. What should I do every time I go to the hospital and complain of pain like this they assume I just want pain meds. and I dont I have seen 3 different gastroenterologists and no one seems to want to help. Im lost and in a lot of pain.
