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.

    Swings!

    6
    Hey everyone, I need some advice again.One moment all is okay, the next I am back to no being able to eat anything at all again. I am fucking tired of this swing back and forth. When I thought I had recovered from the last flare up, I had 1 or 2 pieces of toast too many one night and now I am back into dust again. Now I have to fast a day or two while I have hardly gained any weight. Is this...

    Decreasing PPI, increasing burning?

    So I've been taking pantoprazole twice a day at 40mg for about 2.5 weeks. Was feeling ok so I decided to try cutting my doseage to once in the morning. Woke up the next day with more burning in my stomach and chest. Tried last night to do 20mg at night with my usual morning dose, and woke up again today with the same burning. Ive been sleeping on a wedge for a few days, and usually don't get acid...

    Hello everyone,I am new to this forum and I am looking for some advice/ would like to see how others have handled what I'm going through. The last few months I have been experiencing severe bloating to the point where I can't button my pants by the end of the day and I am curled up in pain.

    Experience with Nexium

    1
    Hi all, just wondering what side effects people may have had on nexium. I have started having lots of burping about a week into it ... also stomach pains and I wonder if they are gas pains, they are sharp and shooting, or feels like my insides are twisting. I have had these pains before I started nexium as well but they started back up about a week or so into it. I am in my second week now. I...

    Please help!!!

    Hello everyone, I'm 16 years old and have been told I have gastritis with no h.pylori. I have been scared of eating and have been scared of doing something wrong. I also have constipation. I don't know what to eat, so I have only been getting around 100-300 calories a day (from saltine crackers and juices). I lift weights and weighed 219 but i'm buff and not fat. Ever since being told I had...
  • How do you treat this type of gastritis, it all started from the overload of antibiotics, and since then 10 months of severe burning, and a huge set back where I cannot even get water down without wanting to scream. I remember the first time it took almost 4-6 weeks for PPIs to even kick in for this. I am approaching the 4th week with no difference. I did all sorts of research and found not to...

    Am I healing?

    3
    hey all, could use your colkective wisdom on how to tell if your stomach is healing? I've been taking pantaprazole again for the last 3 weeks, and the pain seems somewhat duller although there is still a constant discomfort in my upper abdomen. I've also noticed the middle of my chest feels more sensitive, and I have urges to cough. It often feels like someone is scratching or tickling the inside...

    Setbacks

    7
    Hi everyone, In the last 5 months (when all started), nearly 3 or 4 times I have encountered setbacks where afterwards I could barely eat and had bloating and discomfort (sometimes slight, sometimes more). They were caused either by trying out some bad food, eating too much, or having new and slightly irritating food consecutively (exactly the things I mentioned should be avoided in my previous...
  • Since I have been dealing with gastritis for nearly four months, I thought maybe I can share some of the experiences which have helped me steer through this challenging condition. I am by no means healed yet; one wrong step and my stomach shuts the digestive enterprise for a few days. But on the positive side, I am pain-free, my appetite has increased greatly and can eat bigger meals than before....
