Well two weeks ago I had really bad acid reflux for a few days and felt nauseated and couldn't eat much. My relative, a doctor at Kaiser, told me to take a 150 Zantac tablet after breakfast and 1 after dinner for an entire week. Each 12 hours apart. Since it wasn't an official visit he wasn't able to give me an official diagnosis. Well it seems like my problems have changed. Instead of the heart burn feeling and tightening of the throat, my symptoms have changed to constantly feeling hungry. Even after I've eaten my stomach still isn't satisfied because I get the same feeling again 30 minutes later. I don't vomit or have diarrhea nor do I feel like I have to, but when I don't put something in my stomach when I'm hungry, it starts hurting.
When my problem first occurred I was under a lot of stress with finals, my job, and graduate school applications, but I'm not really stressed anymore. Can someone tell me what is wrong? Should I see a doctor about a possible ulcer or wait the rest of the week out (3 days). I also don't drink or smoke and I'm pretty fit. Thanks
