Hello,

Ibuprofen medicine may cause gastritis which may cause pain also causes stomach ulcers which may cause ulcers with pain.

So, it is better to decrease the dose of it slowly or take tablet Tramadol in the place of Ibuprofen if pain is mild. Use tablet Nexium before breakfast for one week.

If symptoms not improved, please consult your doctor, he/she will examine and treat you accordingly.

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