See a GI MD, tested: Ongoing symptoms need evaluation, once and for all; may include a thorough history, comprehensive physical exam, appropriate labs, and perhaps endoscopy and/or radiology evaluation.
If people keep saying it's ulcers, and you never have been checked for ulcers, then you don't really know what it is (and neither do they).
