No you should not take NSAID's whilst you have a duodenal ulcer. They increase the risk of gastric bleeding.
Paracetamol is probably a safer pain relief option for you.
You should discuss your pain relief options with your doctor.

Please don't EVER take NSAID if you have history of ulcers. I didn't know about this information and I almost died last May due to bleeding ulcers. Talk to your doc about other safer pain medications.
