My stomach has been hurting since 2 am last night (almost 12 hours). (This has been happening on and off since May) I've been doing some research online and have self-diagnosed myself with an ulcer. It seems to match my symptoms. Anyway, I've told my doc about
my stomach pain about
5 times now. I just called again and told the secretary that I'm going to start taking zantac otc. (I checked interactions w/my other meds- it's ok) She said she'd talk to the doc and call back. I haven't taken it yet, but I feel like a pain in the butt always complaining to my new doc who I think is great, because she helped get my UC under control. I have an appt with her on the 22nd. I just can't bear to wait that long!
Anyway, do any of you have ulcers? I wonder if this is common for UCers. I think I also want someone to say that it's ok to bug the doc about this.
