I am taking lansaprozole for my gastritis and it worked for a couple of weeks then I find myself unable to digest food as it is restricting stomach acid so I am stuck in a circle . as I have been unable to eat for a few days I have only taken kelonticon gel but I find my stomach is having little pin pricks now and again shoul I be worried.

" Hi Anita and welcome to the forum!

What amount of lansaprozole were you taking a day?

I have the same trouble you describe when I'm taking two ppi's a day. I would supplement with a pro-biotic to help with digestion. "

" I sometimes take Dom peridone to help move digestion a little faster but I can tell when it gets bad because I seem to have a backlash of foam and froth in my mouth from the hiatal hernia . On a good day you just taste sweetness or bits coming back up. At least it's not acidic . How long have you had your gastritis for and how come you have oesphagitis do you have a weakening of the lower esophageal sphincter ? Can you still do so much exercise with this problem? "

" hi anita mo
im taking omeprazole on a morning & ranitidine at night also i take gaviscon but the best ive found lately is sainsburys own fruit brand ant-acid tablets they really do the trick when ive got a bit of heartburn or acid reflux, ive had this on & off for over 2 years now theres no real cure its just a case of changing your lifestyle & diet also try not to get to stressed thats real bad for causing acid i find with exercise its pretty much up to how you feel but would advice against stomach crunches, my doc also told me to try & avoid bending & stretching as that can play your gastritis up good luck your not alone "

" Anitamo asked me
"How long have you had your gastritis for and how come you have oesphagitis do you have a weakening of the lower esophageal sphincter ? Can you still do so much exercise with this problem?

I have had gastrtitus since mid summer of 2010. Diagnosed officially in Feb of 2011. I healed that bout with 40 mg of aciphex for about 3 months. I had another bout that begn in Jan of 2011 due to some stupid risks I took with meds like ibuprofen. I am almost healed now.
My esophagitis was related to me acid reflux. As I slept the acid was damaging the esophagus. As for excercise, my gastritus creates more problems than esophagitus. I excercise daily . I love to jog and hike. When it's at it's worse I may have to take a few days and just walk to keep from aggravating it. "
