I've had this condition for five years now, and though I try to manage it as I can with Rabeprazole in the morning I can't seem to wean off it. The chief symptom is a burning sensation in the stomach during meals. If I take 10 or 20 mg of Rabeprazole in the morning I can stay symptomless, but if I don't, then I experience a burning sensation which can be spread in the upper abdomen or localised below the left ribcage. I do have perennial stress in my life, and a horrible family and economic situation does little to help that. I don't experience much pain or much of any other symptom, just the burning unless I take the Rabeprazole which I'm trying to wean off ever since I discovered it can harm the kidneys. 5 years, but I keep worrying whether I will end up with cancer or anything.
I've had an H. Pylori blood test this year, the first time in 5 years, and it did not find anything. I've shelved the idea of an endoscopy away for long enough but plan on getting it done. My question is, if one does not have any H. Pylori but still has chronic gastritis, how can one cope with it without having to take PPIs and stuff which can damage the kidneys and stuff? What diet should I follow? If one has chronic gastritis without H. Pylori, does that mean they will end up with cancer someday?
I thank you all for your time, patience, and aid.
