Since February I had been experiencing a very mild discomfort with some bloating. Then over a month ago this became pain and was on one occasion extremely painful and was treated with a massive dose of Gaviscon by the hospital I attended which eventually eased the pain. An endoscopy showed I had inflammation of my lower stomach and the 2 H.Pylori tests I had were negative. I'm currently taking Omeprazole which seems to help.
I'm not in any of the following groups:
People over age 60
People who drink too much alcohol
People who routinely use aspirin or NSAIDs, especially at high doses
So I'm baffled as to why I've ended up with this condition!?
Am I right in thinking this has to do with acidity coming back up from the duodenum/lower intestine?
What foods in general will worsen the Gastritis?
Can I take anything to line my stomach to prevent further problems?
I don't want to be taking Omeprazole for the rest of my life so what can I take instead which is healthier for treating gastritis?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
