How can a painful stomach ulcer be treated?

I am at work and I have a stomach ulcer and am still waiting for tests to see how bad it is but as I stand and walk around at work the pain seems to get worse and worse and I am not sure what to do

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

* The intensity of such pain seems to be due to underlying inflammation of significant amount involving stomach, intestine or else.
* My recommendations at present:

-Take immediate leave from the work place.
-Attend ER to give primary relief with analgesic injection and other supportive medications.
-Return back with the reports when available.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

* As the pain intensity is severe, I request you to take a leave from the work immediately.
* Until results turn out, I recommend an injection of proton pump inhibitor with pain killer for primary relief.

Hi doctor. I have been suffering with ulcer for the past 15 years. I am 31 years old. I have taken different types of medications but still having the pain. When I drink lemon juice or tamarind juice is as if I will die strength will go out of me and will gasp for breath. I have this terrible pain on my chest and my stomach. What should I do? Does Lipton tea has a negative effect on ulcer?
