stomach ulcer.....HELP

HI GUYS, i will try and cut an extremely LONG story as short as possible.
basically, after numerous visits to hospital with what felt like labour pains, doctors have come to the conclusion that i have a stomach ulcer.
when the pain kicks in it is absolutly horrendous and has me crouched down on my hands and knees crying in pain! sometimes it only lasts 5 mins, sometimes it can last 6 hours.
i was originally on tablets for it, but have now been put on stronger ones, and now the pain doesnt come that often, it used ot be about 4 times a week, now i get it about once a week.
i was just wondering if n e 1 had any tips on how to ease the pain once it has started?? i have tried sitting in the bath, drinkin cold drinks, drinking milk, its such a sharp and uncomfortable pain and had me up alllllllllllllllll night last night :( any advice would be marvelous!!
p.s, i have been refered to a specialist about it, but, i cant be seen to for another 3 months!!

Hello,

These days the medical professionals can test for some ulcers through testing your saliva or worst case scenario by carrying out an endoscopy. You need to speak to you GP or consutant at the hospital and don't let them fob you off.

I would recommend that you have a look at the following website:

http://www.patient.co.uk/health/Stomach-(Gastric)-Ulcer.htm

Have a look at your diet and read up on the foods/drinks that you shouldn't consume if you are suffering from an ulcer.

Good luck

Not sure about how to reduce your pain but i guess its wise to keep away from acidic foods

Are you on omeprazole? The PPIs are usually better than the H2 blockers for ulcers. A family member was issued ranitidine (H2 blocker) and switched to omeprazole and this reduced the frequency and severity of symptoms dramatically. Try to avoid acid forming foods and drinks (dairy products, fruit juices, coffee, etc.) Hope you feel better soon!

Edit: here's a good list of all the foods you should avoid:

i cant go to bed, it keeps me up all night, the only way i can seem to get comfy is in a red hot bath, but, i cant stay in it for hours while the pain goes lol. its absolutley horrible!! i usually find myself on all 4's with my boyfriend rubbing my back really hard, that seems to help too, but not much, its terrible!!! the doc did tell me that if it happened again through the night that i was to ring out of hours doctor and they will come and inject me with morphine, but i dont like to ring cos ya can guarantee the pain will have gone by the time they get here!

the only thning that takesthe pain of is injected morphine, and that can not be perscribed :( you have to call out of hours doc out, but, thepain is not always still there when they arrive, and it only really takes half the pain off. its a terrible thing to have. im in and out of docs all the time,shaking and sweating cos of the pain, but, there is nothing can be done really, as surgery can cause massive damged to your stomach, they dnt like to remove the ulcers

yeah, i have had the liquid morphine a few times, i dnt find it takes all the pain away though, its quite a scary thing to have a stomach ulcer cos if it becomes infected or it bursts, that can cause death!
