Our expert says:
Unfortunately, you do not provide much information and it is therefore, difficult to provide you with an informed opinion. Yes, you are correct in thinking that your symptoms can be due to a stomach ulcer but there are also other possibilities, like a respiratory tract infection, that will have to be excluded and I therefore, suggest that you consult your doctor for an examination. If your symptoms also go hand in hand with reflux, it might be due to acid/gastric reflux and you can then use Gaviscon Advanced, three times daily, before meals.
