Can any doc explain why avoid certain foods when you have a stomach ulcer when they're actually alkalising?
Keep getting pain between ribs lasting 2-3 days goes then back.Gnawing pain, better after food, wakes me up.Back hurts also. Stomach ulcer likely?

Burning sensation in stomach after eating certain foods for few years. Doctor said if it was a stomach ulcer i would have blood in stool by now.True?

Usually it causes lots of burps and regurgitation of acid/food in the throat/ mouth. 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
