Stomach Ulcer??

I have been experiencing upper left quadrant pain on and off since April 2014. I have seen my gastroenterologist and have been prescribed Carafate 3x a day, for what he believes is a stomach ulcer. It has gotten some better but I still awaken in the night with stomach spasms and burning. This occurs during the day also. Ok so I started looking through my medical records today, and in 2010 I had a CT scan because of a hemorrhagic ovarian cyst. As I was going over my CT scan paperwork again today I noticed a small note that said: Incidentally noted is a short segment small bowel intussusception in the left abdomen, without obstruction, a transient finding in the adult population.
Well after reading this, first of all I remember my concern at the time and my dr telling me it was nothing to be concerned about. BUT, I am now wondering if maybe I do not have a ulcer and maybe this intussusception could be the reason for my issues 4 years later???
Has anyone else had this? Or do you know anything about it? Should I be concerned?
