In brief: Yes.

Aspirin can cause erosive gastritis in some people.
If you were told to stop it, don't start it again. Also, don't take ibuprofen, or naprosyn. Call your doctor about the best meds for you to take and in what dosage for pain If you have persistent pain not responding to Protonix (pantoprazole) also call your doc for help.If dizziness, increasing pain, fever, vomiting, blood in stool (black or red) to ER.
