    that gnawing hunger pang thing

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to get rid of that gnawing hunger that can be so painful it feels like you have't eaten in a year when in fact I had just eaten 1/2 hour ago or so? My daughters experience it too and they both have ulcers..tried tums and pepcid..I am already overweight and if I gave into those horrible rumblings I would really gain weight.

    Re: that gnawing hunger pang thing

    I've experienced that gnawing hunger/burning sensation when I had gastritis and esophogitis. I suggest you see your primary care physician or a gastroenterologist to get a prescription for the strong stuff like nexium, protonix, etc. Tums and pepcid are likely not strong enough to heal the cause of that hunger pang. If for some reason you can't see a doctor, you could pick up some OTC prevacid and try that out. My doctor told me that 2 prevacid tablets are equivalent to one 40mg Nexium tablet. It might relieve your symptom for the time being until you can see a doctor that can properly determine whether you have an ulcer or something else like gastritis. Good luck.
