Update on Megan

I just wanted to give you guys a quick update. I have been diagnosed with a stomach ulcer and have just been trying to relax and let it go away on its own.

I was given a prescription for 800 mg ibuprofen to be taken four times a day. Taking this many of a type of drug called Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) is known to cause stomach ulcers and in a few short weeks of having this prescription, I developed one. 

I will be trying out some all natural pain relievers and acid reducers and will let you guys know how they work. I will be taking White Willow Bark for pain and Ginger Root for an acid reducer. I'll keep you all posted!!
