duodenal (peptic)ulcer

I was wondering if anyone else had dealt withthis?
I am looking for relief and read somewhere that eating when a flareup happens can help ease symptoms?
I have been experincing excruciating pain under the breastbone, and it only starts after midnight, the pain lastd 5 to 6 hours, eventually i will throw up 2 or 3 times and willbe able to fall asleep for a couple hours, I know im getting ready to get an attack when my back starts to hurt .

The only way to even describe the uncomfortble pain is I feel like im in labor, I cant sit, lay down, i can walk but it hurts, i cant sleep, I ended up in the ER the other night and they gave me morhine for pain and did ultrasounds and blood work, They said liver, kidneys , pancreas and gallbladder look ok, but didnt mention if they found a bacteria in my blood workor even if they looked for it
My insurance doesnt kick in until january so I have to deal withthis until then

Currently i am taking 1 prilosec a day for 2 weeks, i take a swig of gaviscon every hour and I only eat crackers and drink water because im terrified eating will bring on another attack, I cant bear the pain, espeicaly when i get it every single night and it lasts 5 or 6 hours,
