Hi Ladies, This is my first post. I'm hoping someone can help me out. I was wondering if anyone else has an ulcer? If so, do you have terrible stomach pain along with a icky taste in your mouth? I've been told in the past I have ibs,but now with the burning and pain I'm getting a little scared. I have an appt. with a dr. but not till the end of Dec. Any replys would be appreciated.

Re: ulcers

The burning and pain and yucky taste sounds more like GERD than an ulcer. With an ulcer the pain is usually intense enough to send you to the ER for relief. Have you considered trying one of the over the counter medications for GERD until your doc appointment. Pepcid AC and Zantac are 2 such medications available over the counter for this.
