Are there any gastritis success stories at all?

Posted , 10 users are following.

Hello all,

I've had stomach pains mainly under right rib and lower right side for 5 months now. Blood test, ultrasound all came back fine.

I'm a beer alcoholic/ binge drinker. Went on a bender when gf broke up with me.. Woke up short of breath and a feeling under my right rib that feels like someone is poking me.

That pain s stuck around, and the pain moved around the the belly a bit but always returned back to its right rib locating. Then the right kidney area feels like its burning.. off and on.

Pain is not horrible. Only once did it scare me and I thought I was having a heart attack (im 36 yrs old)

I immediatly went on a clean diet and cut out everything I thought was bad including booze.

GI specialist wants me to go get and endoscopy, which I'm saving up for. GI doc. won't talk to me directly but got her assistant to tell me in broken english to get the endoscopy. I asked if I have cirrosis, pancreitis or gall stones.. she said no. Just mild fatty liver.

For now though i'm just on the net researching. Any of you guys felt that kind of pain?

I'm positive its gastritis, so i'm on a boring diet in the meantime.. Not doing a whole lot.

Started cabbage juice inconsistantly. (3 times a day).

The pains chilled out for a day but came back quite rapidly. ( It might be from a new protien powder I tried that had a ALOT of sodium in it...

Thanks for reading. I will be sure to update from time to time and hopefully close out this thread one day with success to help future lurkers and members.

    You will get used to live with the pain. Better anyway, as you will have a lifetime gastritis.

      Not me Gary.

      I'll beat this.

      Had a bad weekend in the kitchen. Made dishes that brought bad symptoms. Tomato's in the stew are destorying me right now. And since I was on autopilot on Saturday I dumped a couple jalapenos in the pot.. Tore me up.

      So with 100% certainty. I cannot tollerate tomatoes or peppers. ::(((((((
