Depends: Pain is not expected during the treatment of your ulcer. See your physician to personalize your treatment to your particular situation or other diagnoses. Narcotic pain medication will increase reflux symptoms and are not generally recommended in ulcer.

Ice: Try to limit the pain killers. Usually an absolute max is 8/day. It depends on the drug and the strength. Cold packs for 15-20 minutes at a time can help. There are many different meds to try if the 1 you are using is not effective.

Need full evaluation: A person with hearing problems since age 5 years will have had evaluations by her pediatrician or primary care doctor, been referred to an audiologist for complete testing, and been seen by an ENT doctor to find out if there is any correctable disorder causing the hearing problems. If these things have not been done, she should write down her story and take it to her primary care doctor to start.

Take with food: try to take with food and try not to go over the recommended dosing. Try to limit other foods that might increase acidity in the stomach. Try to limit caffeine, nicotine, citrus fruit, tomato sauce and others.
