But are the ulcers related to/triggered by your sax playing?

That's the thing, I can't be certain what it is but what I do know is I didn't have this problem 10 years ago before I started playing.

Real cane or synthetic?
Normally Vandoren Blue, so real cane but I was using Synthetic for the 3 months leading to Christmas and didn't notice a difference, so I guess we can rule that out. Now that you mention it, I do tend to get a wet reed quite often and suck up on the mouthpiece to stop the fizzing noise.

Ok, sorry to hear it - beyond my knowledge.

2 weeks clear now and had some chocolate on the weekend. Had a few tomatoes today too so should be interesting to see if the Cosodyl still does the trick over the next few days.

Pretty sure I have found the cause of my ulcer issues, it was being in a constant state of dehydration. I never felt thirsty but as I have forced myself to drink a lot more after a suggestion from my girl friend they've gone. I even bit my lip yesterday which used to be a guaranteed ulcer at the location and nothing.
