Heartburn/Ulcer

I was badly burned this past summer and suffered second degree burns from the mid thigh down onto my feet on both legs.  For the first week I had Heat Stroke and couldn't keep much down.  All I ended up taking was ibuprofen on a relatively empty stomach.  As a result I have horrible acid reflux or possibly an ulcer. I do take protonix 40 mg daily, but usually end up taking two because it hurts quite a bit.  They help a little, but not enough.  How can I tell the difference between the two? What can be done to fix or control this problem.  Thanks!
