The thing you can do is change the PH of your body and right now its very acidic. I think alot of apples would be a great start and they also have alot of good fiber which will help pass all the toxins from your body. Don't be suprised if you get cold symptoms but thats just your body trying to get all that useless stuff out. This really takes a change in your diet and you need to have at least 5 servings of vegetables (lightly cooked) and fruits (watermelon!!). Im sure you hear this all the time but theres fruit that has a really astringent effect on the body making your tract more alkaline. For you I would recommend Bananas that would sooth your ulcer, Pomegranates which could treat your ailment but also prevents cancers--yes, ulcers can become cancerous if left untreated. Theres a bunch of info online and you can find what works for you but avoid pshyllium fibers which can irritate your intestines and stomach.

note: Never mix fruit with meat or carbs, leave 30 mins before and after eating

well, I have no experience about this ulcer. but it is dangerous. Just you have to wait for the time. When you feel pain don't keep it for long. You have to immediately get admitted for removal of this ulcer from your body. Odaijini (Take care in Japanese)

No need to be afraid of the doctor. Peptic ulcers have to be diagnosed. I am not a doctor lover? But in some cases..you may need to "bite the bullet" and see one. You MAY think it is an ulcer and they may think something else! But having an ulcer ..if treated correctly, they go away! But some come from too much stomache acid, others from a bacterial infection. So you need to go find out what you have and get it treated. You'll feel lots better! And if it is something that's not an ulcer, you'll want the right treatment! It does not take long in the office! You'll be in and out in no time. Go get it over with, get it treated and you'll feel better faster than if you drag it out and keep guessing! Make the appoinment NOW! LOL! You'll be glad later!
