Last week I was diagnosed with a duodenal ulcer and
am taking Amoxicillin, Biaxin and
Prevacid. I am one week into treatment and
feel only marginally better.
My question is about stomach tenderness. Is a tender stomach normal with a peptic ulcer? My entire stomach area, from just below my breasts, down to my navel, is very tender to the touch. When touched it produces like a burning/stinging/bruised feeling. Depending on the day, or time of the day, the pain is greater or less.
