Well, I saw my doc today and sure enough, he thinks I have an ulcer in addition to all of my other ailments! Lucky me I've had this problem off and on for a couple of yrs, but it's gotten worse lately. I always say that it feels like I have a hot rock sitting in the bottom of my stomach, not good. Anytime I try to take a regime of supplements, I get this stomach discomfort. Consequently, I never seem to be able to take many supps for long enough to notice whether or not they help me. I've also taken thousands of Ibuprofen pills over the yrs, not to mention many other pain meds, ADs, etc etc..... I guess it's just finally caught up w me. So, I have 3 new prescriptions to choke down everyday for my stomach. Doc wants me to take them for a couple of months to see if I feel better before ordering the test where they stick a camera down my throat. I'll avoid that as long as I can! I swear, I just wonder what the next ailment will be that I come down with. It's always something...I would love to be healthy again...I don't even remember what that feels like! Anyone have any tips for dealing w ulcers? I know I'm supposed to avoid spicy, acidic foods, but I will have a hard time cutting out my 2 cups of coffee a day. I'll just have to buffer it with a lot of milk I guess for now. Arggggggggg.
