Stomach Ulcers?

I have H Pylori - The first antibiotic therapy was ended shortly after I developed major side effects from the medications.  Now im on Prevacid PPI 30mg once daily for a month to heal my stomach until I can start a new round of antibiotics.  If I don't take the Prevacid I have mild achey pains under my right rib and upper back, so Im suspecting gastritis is causing this?  I never feel nauseated or vomit and my bowel movements are pretty normal. I never wake up in the middle of the night with classic ulcer symptoms.

I know an endoscopy would reveal the real cause of my pain - but curious if ulcer pains are similar to that of gastritis or different?
