Yes, the steroids can definetly cause problems with your ulcer. I always have additional problems with my acid reflux/GERD whenever I have had to take Pred or Entocort. And thats with taking 60 mg Prilosec. Since he is doing the test on Wednesday I would just try to hang on and see what that shows. If you start having ALOT more blood or more pain, then I would head to the ER. Good luck!
