Hi I have pain in my upper abdomen swelling /tender. Took 1 zoton, relieved it. I took 1 ponstan last nite. Also lot of pain lst wk. Doc. Said ulcer?

May be ulcer, or not: Upper abdominal pain can be from "acid" pains, such as a stomach ulcer, just gastritis with no ulcer, or reflux (heartburn). Sometimes there is an ulcer in the first part of the small intestine. An infection with h. Pylori bacteria can lead to stomach ulcer pains. An acid blocker like zoton can help.

I'm assuming the abd pain is from coughing, but have that checked out if it worsens or doesn't get immediately worse with cough for a second (as the abd muscles contract with cough or sneeze). ...Read more
