Hi lazylady41,

Here are some home treatment methods for peptic ulcers that you might try. Because many other conditions can cause chest pain , it is important that you see a doctor if you have been using antacids or other treatment methods for more than 10-14 days without help, or if the pain worsens or changes.

Best wishes,
