Well, here I am. They didn't run me off, I've got a life, thank you very much.

Mapping out my recording studio and school has been taking up a lot of time

The ulcer is the result of a week long soda binge...

Stupid, I know, but wait a second...

I almost never drink soda, or anything with caffiene in it. So, there was some really good soda lying around my house, and that's all I drank for a week.

And I'm paying for it now...

I can't get even a bite of a Saltine down without wanting to vomit

Wow, that's nuts. So does your doc think you have an ulcer just by the symptoms then? Soda... I mean yeah it's acidic but... oh hell who am i to say

he gave you antibiotics right? i walked around with mine for months before going to the doctor and then another two months before i had an endoscopy/colonoscopy (I have IBS, they thought I might have had chron's disease) before I got some pictures of my bleeding stomach along with several months of antibiotics. at least you didn't have to go through that, cheer up

drink a bunch of water or some milk it might help with pain if it doesn't make you nauseous. your doc probably told you that though.

I haven't exactly gone to a doctor yet, but my mom has had multiple ulcers, and she said that my symptoms match the criteria for an ulcer.

I'm starting to take an antacid and a multivitamin, and that's it.

My mom made me some peppermint tea when I was laying down. She said that it would help my stomach.

Weird thing is though, it made me feel worse.

I thought I was going to vomit everywhere

I'm glad I don't have to go through an endoscopy/colonoscopy, though.

My brother has had both, and they do not sound pleasant.

*shudder*

no offense to your mom but an ulcer is a pretty big thing. it's a hole in your stomach or upper GI. it isn't normally caused by soda, it's not acidic enough, honestly it usually isn't caused by foods at all the symptoms just get worse with eating. it's caused by bacteria even if the original ulceration was somehow acid/food related

which is why i was skeptical. antacids are a good idea. avoid NSAIDs like the plague, this is what caused my ulcer likely along with really bad GERD from anxiety and what have you. don't make the mistake of taking it for stomach pain - it will help at first but just makes everything worse. and go see a doctor, if you have an ulcer you probably need antibiotics and possibly some lifestyle changes.

sorry i cant help myself from giving medical advice but you seem to appreciate it :x

Alright. There is a possibility it could be acid reflux, but I have a lot of the ulcer symptoms

yeah. have you actually thrown up or do you just get nauseous? usually reflux is more of throwing up without nausea involved, just your stomach expunging the acid when it can't take it anymore (which is also why soda most likely wouldn't cause this btw, your stomach self regulates). occam's razor says it's reflux until you see a doctor. it's good for piece of mind too. colonoscopies suck but endoscopies are not too bad, and that's all you'd probably need if your doc even goes that direction. they can give you general anesthesia if you can't deal with being awake during it.

the kind of vague shitty pain that comes with a stomach ulcer i don't think i'd have any problem recognizing today if it came up. it is hard to explain but your stomach feels like it's a pulled muscle or something (it's very uncomfortable) and i couldn't eat and always felt like i had to poop (bloated i guess) and everyone told me i looked like shit, in fact my job made me take a week vacation the week before i had the endo/colonoscopy. i let it go too long though probably. i also had unrelated lower GI bleeding so that probably contributed to the overall feeling too

i so don't miss having this crap and awful awful IBS like i had for years and years until i finally went to the doctor. i still have IBS but it's mild, fuck man i dont miss that at all

Haven't vomited yet.

Last time I did was when I had food poisoning

well i hope you feel better, hopefully you wake up tomorrow and it's gone don't make yourself think you have an ulcer when you most likely don't (the brain is a powerful thing and can/will make you feel more pain), this should be over soon

Thanks reprise.

I'm feeling better today, I just had some lunch, so I'm trying to see if I can keep it down without feeling sick

She's been really supportive since my father died.

Even though she was yelling at my dog and calling him a shithead a while ago.

She's convinced he has ADD and ODD

Yeah, my mom's a little wacko at times...

She thinks he has ODD because whenever she or I puts his toys away, he runs to the basket and takes them all out again

Found out that it's probably not an ulcer, it's just acid reflux disease.

Thank God it's not an ulcer.

Ugh. My stomach acid keeps coming up though, I can feel it

Blergh

congrats, you have passed one more milestone in your journey to adulthood. i remember the first time i had heartburn, i was around 12 and woke up in the middle of the night and thought something was seriously wrong with my heart/chest - i woke up my mom and she laughed at me and then yelled at me for waking her up

and then i was a woman

Lol yeah.

Still thankful that I don't have an ulcer.

I'm also happy that I can still drink ginger ale, but it has to be diet so it doesn't screw with my stomach

I am supposed to lay off acidic stuff for a while too.

So I was at the store today, and my mom asked if I wanted some oranges.

I hate oranges, and since I can't have very acidic things, I said "I can't have them, remember?"

And she was like "oh, yeah. Sucks to be you."

But yeah I'm happy that I can't eat oranges.
