hi, i have had terrible stomach problems since i started taking my meds, i think the aspirin is the culprit, i have a hernia, gastritis and gerd. prilosec really helps alot, you can get it over the counter or by prescription. i only take 20 mg.. does it hurt when you talk much?? my sromach actually feels raw if i talk for long. DGL is a natural remedy for your stomach lining and i use that too. along with acidopolis, to keep my intestinal tract healthy. hope this info is a little helpful.
