i might be being a bit paranoid, but have had a stomach pain for two days now, everything i've looked up suggests an ulcer could it just come up that quickly or am i being a hypochondriac

Could be.

I convinced myself I either had an ulcer or stomach cancer, but it turned out to be a symptom of stress.

I have a stomach ulcer.

The pain is more unbearable than childbirth. Swallowing even saliva is crippling. It's a stabbing pain that goes right through the centre of my tummy to my back. I can't sit, lay or do anything during an active 'attack'.

IMO you probably don't have a stomach ulcer or you'd have sought medical attention due to the sheer agony of it.

sorry to hear that cnft sounds crippling. can they not treat it permanently

I take a drug called Omeprazole twice daily to stop my stomach producing any acid.

Are you in any of the high risk groups for developing an ulcer?
