Hi Guy, My name is David , 19 years old university student
I've been suffering gastritis and gerd on an off for about two years now. It all started two years ago when i have constant pain in my stomach and couldn't do anything much, I got diagnosed with chronic gastritis (due to H.Pylori) and at the same time, some kind of mild reflux, I was put on a 1 week antibiotic courses which helped me for about 6-8 months then the pain came again, I got my second endoscopy which shown that i have gastritis, Type 1 antrum intestinal metaplasia & reflux like symptoms ( burphing every 10 - 30 mins, i feel like there is always a very little amount of air that want to come up, i tried to swallow so that it doesn't reflux into my esophagus but overtime it doesn't help much )
The thing that I'm quite surpized is because almost everytime i experience Gerd like symptoms is also accompanied by Gastritis. Now that my stomach is cleared of H.Pylori for the second time, but i keep feeling like there is a pressure ( air that came from my stomach pushing up into the esophagus ) which is really annoying and since I'm takin Nexium and Gaviscon, i tend not to see any heartburn or sour taste.
My Dr told me that now my gastritis is not as bad, it will slowly get back to normal but on my own side the burping reflux like symptoms doesn't get any better if not slightly worse. Anyone experienced this before, please give me advises so that i can take my normal life back without feeling so bad every day.
