My stomach won't stop burning!!!

The moment I open my eyes in the morning it starts.  Like a fire going on in my stomach.  I've been on protonix for about a month, 2 times/day.  Not helping.  I eat Tums all day long, no help.  I had an endoscopy 2 years ago, and all the dr said was I had an "inflamed" stomach lining.  ALso 2 years ago had the very long gall bladder test...for these same symptoms.  2 years ago, after about 2 months, the symptoms just went away.  Now they are back worse than before!  Help!  Should I wait another couple of weeks, or call my gastro doctor?
Thanks.

Hi,
Test for H.pylori.
If it is positive, you have to treat that infection also, in addition to taking protonix.
Consult your gastro for this test.
Also avoid NSAIDs.
