Gastritis Support Group

Gastritis is a medical term for inflammation of the lining of the stomach. It means that white blood cells move into the wall of the stomach as a response to some type of injury. Gastritis has many underlying causes, from infection with the bacterium H. pylori, bile reflux, or excessive consumption of alcohol or certain foods or drugs like aspirin.

    Ready to give up

    Hate to be melodramatic but it's all just too much, the gastritis, gerd, ic, peri-menopause and other gynological ailments...I have a good family but really, I am alone in this (no partner).  I no longer care about trying to get better.  Nothing I have done or any Dr. has perscribed has ever helped.  I will sometimes get a little bit better for a week or so and start to hope that I can have a...

    Loss of appetite, burping, tight abdomen

    Do any of you deal with gastritis that is basically just burping and loss of appetite?  My symptoms started after a drinking binge.  I don't normally drink.  I was at a festival, lots of people around, food stalls, questionable sterilization, and I got the runs for several days.  No big deal, I thought, and my movements normalized themselves (more or less) within a few weeks.  But a few days...

    Gastritis symptoms have gotten worse - BURNING

Yes, I had burping, indigestion, some pain especially on the left side, under the ribs and very mild middle of the stomach pain, but only very slight burning the first few days - the burning all went away after a couple of days. I was on 60 mg of...

    Does it ever heal?

    Hello, everyone!So I've been dealing with gastritis since June of 2016. I don't really know 100% if NSAID's caused it but I assume that it did. On October of 2015 I had my wisdom teeth extracted and I was prescribed Norco's. I took one Norco with some mashed potatos and an hour later I was puking my brians out. Since my body didn't respond well to Norco's I thought that Advil would be...

    It's been a struggle almost this whole year

    At first, it started with a loss of appetite (which may actually be related to my depression/anxiety), which led me to cut down on eating. Eventually, loss of appetite turned to nausea/gagging and pain in my stomach when I ate. One day, I thought I had the flu. Then I threw up. For a couple days, I was sick, but then I felt better and returned to my regular eating habits. Then, I had a weird...

    malabsorption tests

    I got the results of my malabsorption breath tests and I'm ok with fructose but there is evidence of lactose malabsorption. Given my reaction to the lactose test last week I was expecting that. I won't to to what I extent until I see the GI doctor next Wednesday. Fingers crossed it will be temporary and I won't lose my yummy yoghurt for too long, if at all.I have the dietician at the end of the...
