Was wondering if anyone on this board has/or had and Ulcer? If so, I was just wondering what the typlical symptoms are and what meds/home remidies you take to help.
Also, what tests are taken to help determine if you have an ulcer or not?

Thanks

See my posting to Crazzy1 - under the heading We Discovered the Problem.
You should definitely be tested for the H. pylori type of ulcer. It it's that type, it can be treated with antibiotics. It's a simple test where you breathe into a small balloon. Then swallow a mixture and 15 min. later breathe again into another balloon. Both are then sent to a lab to check for the H.pylori.
