Arrow I have a few Questions

1. Does an Ulcer heal on its own?

2. How long after u eat something does it take for ulcer pain to kick in ( I drank a vault earlier, and those are loaded with caffeine and other products, and now my stomach is killing me, but i drank it over 7 hours ago, i can't eat ne thing, and im having bad acid reflux)

Alrite my story is, that im 20 years old im in good condition. except for the fact i think i have a stomach ulcer, well i know i have one, because i was diagnosed with an ulcer when i had an endoscopy about a year ago, but i think it got worse. It started a couple months ago, i started getting really bad pain, and this is after having no pain for awhile(about 5 months of no pain), but i started haveing bad upper left to middle abdominal pain...sometimes it burns, and sometimes it just aches, or feels like a bloating. I can't have food in my stomach when i go to bed, or else my stomach hurts all night long. It doesn't bother me too much during the day, just at night when i go to lay down. and it really bothers me, because i either go to sleep hungry, or i have to deal with pain all night. Im currently taking a combination of Prilosec once a day, and Tagament twice a day, but these past couple of days, i've been getting full really early, im a guy so im used to eating alot during the day, but now i don't have much of an appetite, and when i eat i can only eat a little bit. its kinda starting to worry me, and i have no insurance so ican't go to the doctor. but any input, and if someone could answer those questions i would greatlty appreciate it....god bless

Re: I have a few Questions

Ulcers are not self healing!
85% are causes by a bacteria -- H pylori-- and the other 15% is causes by errosion/ irritation --even some medication like asprin and pain meds like NSAID.

The treatment these days for H pylori bacteria is to take an anti acid -- like Prilosec and 2 antibiotics for a week or so.
If it's caused by errosion taking the anti acid and a bland diet is normally used. Reducing the acid in your stomach is good in either case.

A very good over the counter remedy for ulcers is Mastica taken twice daily --2 --500gm caps between meals. Mastic Gum has been used for hundreds of years by greeks to help stomach problems-- It has been discovered to heal some type of ulcers.

I have taken it for gastritis that I get when I take an antibiotic. It works for me. Do a Google search at the top of this page -- on Mastic Gum or Mastica

I wish you well~~~Harry
