Re: Treatment for ulcers??
Hi..the treatment is to first get a definitive diagnosis. Your doctor should have you checked out by a Gastro doc who does upper scopes. You also need an H.Pylori test done and to check for gastritis as well as esophageal erosion.
Where exactly is your pain? The stomach area is more general...where exactly?
How are you feeling on the prilosec?
Tums are calcium carbonate, they won't help lower the acid in your stomach to help with whatever initially. If you have reflux, acid reducing meds will help. If you have h. pylori, you need to be on antibiotics to kill that bacteria..
What other meds are you on..?
It's all a matter of perspective!
