Brief Answer:
Endoscopy is needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing your query.
After reading your post, I would suggest that you should get yourself clinically examined and investigated by a Gastroenterologist. An Endoscopy will help to rule out any bleeding ulcer.
You should continue with Lansprazole. Also add liquid sucralfate after meals.
Avoid spicy and oily foods. You can take cold milk/ice cream if that suits you.
I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any further query, I will be happy to help.
Regards. Thanks.
