Can any doc explain why avoid certain foods when you have a stomach ulcer when they're actually alkalising?
Acidic/fatty foods: In researching this question I found many lists of food to avoid that were completely undocumented & questionable- for example, most lists said to avoid cabbage, which is the food most proven to help heal ulcers! We don't have much science to answer this, but most find it beneficial to avoid acidic foods like citrus & coffee, alcohol & fatty foods. If spicy foods irritate then avoid. See comment:. ...Read more

Not likely, but...: It is not likely that you have an ulcer, but with symptoms such as that, it is certainly possible.

Hard to see blood in:

A short trial of an antacid like Pepcid (famotidine) at bed time daily might help clarify the cause. There are stronger antacids you can use, if Pepcid (famotidine) helps. ...Read more

Depends.: The answer is whether they use a regular endoscope first as part of the procedure for placement of the endoscopic ultrasound scope.
