Hey, got your note, my pain is sharp at first then for a while after that is dull, typically when I am under stress. I believe it may be ulcerrelated but have never gotten that diagnosis from a doctor. I believe that the sharp pain is when the ulcer starts bleeding and becomes dull as acid in my stomach acts on the newly cut surface of the ulcer. I am going to get a second opinion since my present doctor does not seem to know what may be occuring. I have not had any spread to to my chest or arm(s). It sounds like there may be some neurologic component to what you are suffering. Have you seen a neurologist about it yet?
