hello everyone as you can see in the subject box i took a trip to the hospital of all days my husbands Birthday,.i was hurting with stomach pains realy bad ..thenlater on begain to have chest pain and burning in my chest .

so took off to the doctor to think well they will give me some meds and send me on my way..they took me right in did a ekg and put me in the room ..come in did blood work and chest exray..so we waited and waited and waited..

so the nursecomes in and said we found critical info on your ekg i said ok whats that mean well he said the doctor wants to do a cat scan of your heart and stomach with contast at the same time..so off to exray again..came back waitted some more 13 hours in that room ..then the doctor came in said the test came back negative normal .. but that dont mean there still isnt something wrong with you...so we want to keep you here over night. i was tired and mad i told them no im ready to go home

im not staying any longer..they were insisting i look further.they wanted to get my heart doctor in and my GI doctor ,..so my husband told me its best to stay so i did...

well more blood work more test.. all that day the late that evening my GI doctor walks in tells me that she is going to do a upper gi on me the next day at 2:00 i was doing a upper gi..to make this short she came back to tell me i had muttiple ulcers in my stomach

she ask had i been taking asprin or anything related to it i said no she thought i had becouse of my pain with lyme desease or fibro i said i only take tylenol she said well its from 2 things asprin or bacteria...

so what i was wondering do you know if maybe all these abx could have had something to do with it???she took 5 biopsys is anyone had ulcers ????she wants to do another GI in 2 months im on a very strict diet with this ..so please any info would be appreciated...and they still have me on a heart monitor..thanks shelia

There are some meds that can cause ulcers...would need to know the names of the meds that you are on...

Lyme will TEAR up the digestive system...
