Brief Answer:
Advanced therapies available

Detailed Answer:

You do not have to suffer for so long years now. There are advanced therapies available which will help along with your life style modification.

I suggest you should get an Endoscopy done by a Gastroenterologist and enquire how to end this malady. Antacid is not good over long term use as they can cause alkalosis.

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.
