Go see a gastroenterologist. They can fix your ulcer with something called an endoscopy. They can also treat you for the bacteria (h pylori) that causes the ulcer with 3 medications. I dont know what medicine they put you on but your best bet for IMMEDIATE relieve is an antacid like maalox. But only use that for a short time. The best medicines available for ulcer are the proton pump inhibitors (PPI). Goto the pharmacy and ask for an over the counter PPI like prilosec (omepazole), you can take 2 doses at once and that will equal prescription strength. Feel better.
