Angela, my stomach always bothers me and it's usually just attributed to acid reflux and gastritis, but I did end up with 3 ulcers last year. The stomach scope isn't bad at all...that's one of easiest procedures I have done! I take Protonix for the acid reflux and he increased it until my ulcers healed. I also take Librax for when I have stomach spasms. Your doctor may try something like Prilosec, Zantac, Protonix, etc. if you have ulcers. The last scope I had done showed that I had bacteria, so he gave me an antibiotic that time and it helped a lot, so there are a lot of things that your doctor can try.
