This morning I took 7700mg of betaine HCL and some enzymes on an empty stomach and felt no burning or discomfort whatsoever.
What could cause this? Too much mucosa? Achlorhydria?
The reason I did this was because I have been having terrible bloating, fatigue, and many other symptoms since getting an NSAID ulcer 9 months ago. See my other posts for more info.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

At some point I read (or maybe it was in a Robb Wolf podcast) that the capsules are better than the tablets, that the tablets barely do anything. So if you're taking tablets, that might be why you don't feel anything.
That said, I have the same problem: I've gone up to 7 capsules and still didn't feel a thing. I worried that I just don't sense acidity in my stomach, so I stopped taking them.
