Had a high fever last week - took the maximum amount of ibuprofin, some at night without food. Woke up with intense stomach pain and burning - lasted 2-3 days. Doctor said the ibuprofin tore a hole in my stomach lining. Told me to take Prilosec OTC until it goes away in a week or so. Last night and this morning my bowel movement suddenly had a black color but no horrible smell.
Is this normal for what I did? How long does it last? Am continuing the Prilosec but doctor hasn't been that helpful telling me to get an appointment with a gastro specialist (3 weeks to wait to get in) and didn't even advise me on what to eat or what to do - am finding very little on Web about what to do when ibuprofin destroys your insides. Thanks..
