Gas X Anti Ulcer Agent
My husband has ulcers and reflux problems. On losec. Eats grapefruit-has gas every day. Is this the problem?
Possibly.: Grapefruit has a great deal of acid, and if eaten every day can build up acid in the stomach and result in reflux, but gas every day does not do it, and ulcers are usually from diet and stress. Reflux is usually from 3 main foods; orange juice, chocolate, and tomato products like sauce, etc. Prilosec should stop this, but it is strong and has side effects. See your dr. To be sure of correct use. ...Read more
How do u get rid of gas caused by ulcers i've used everything over-the-counter and the gas makes me nausious?
Pain yes,gas no: The gas you produce is a combination of swallowed air and gas arising from the action of gut germs on undigested food.

Ulcers are just holes in the upper layers of the tissue lining the inside of the gut. ...Read more

I have stomach pain when I am hungry. In addition I have constipation too. Does constipation create gas that cause pain? Or is it a symptom of ulcer

I'd suggest you address the constipation first with a high fiber diet, stool softeners (e.g. Colace) and fiber supplement (e.g. Metamucil). You may also need a laxative in which case i suggest mom or miralax. Avoid taking asa/nsaids. ...Read more
