for those with a stomach ulcer (and bad lower GI pain due to the upper GI problem), digestive enzymes are a HUGE life saver.
someone taught me this yrs ago and it REALLY works (in addition to the prescribed antacids, such as nexium...but many of these cause lower GI symptoms, which sserves to complicate matters...)

att belly ache:
are you a male or female? does it hurt after eating anything specific? where does it hurt (does it feel like heartburn, or is it lower down, more like a 'stomach ache')? how does it feel when it hurts? how often does it hurt? how long does it last when it hurts? have you had any testing done?

if you have had all the tests done and nothing showed up (tests such as upper and lower gI series, stool sample to rule out parasites etc) then try the IBS diet by Heather Van Vorous (there is a lot of info online+2 books). Even if it is not truely IBS, but you have IBS-like symptoms due to other conditions, this can still be a life saver.

if you are a female then your symptoms can be due to specific causes-so feel free to email me directly.

about digestive enzymes:
they sell them usually in the vitamen section...they are to aid in the digestion of foods. obviously for an ucler you'd want to make sure that you buy ones without any acidic ingredients!

I used to suffer from duodinal ulcers (between the stomach and small intestine).

I have been medication free since I began to avoid the triggers, maintain a healthy diet and take probiotics.
