Not unusual: If you are having stomach pain after just 4 days, you need to stop this anti-inflammatory med immediately. You need to see a dr. And find out if a a ppi like Prilosec or Nexium (esomeprazole) would be indicated. You could be developing an ulcer. Switching to a different med of this type will not be beneficial and probably will be very detrimental.
