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.

Hi,My mother is suffering from reflux esophagitis.She vomits as soon as she eats anything.What course of treatment do u recommend for her and is this condition treatable or can it be totally controlled by antacid medications?

I've had heartburn for as long as I can remember. I took prescription medication for awhile but it made me sick. I used to take anywhere from 5-15 TUMS in a day to keep the heartburn at bay. For the last two weeks I have had no heartburn. I haven't changed anything about my lifestyle or eating habits. It's just gone. Is there something more serious happening, or was I just so lucky to have grown out of it? Is this a common occurrence or should I contact my family doctor?
Thank you,
