    I have had it for over a year. I am taking Panthropozole 40mg in the morning at least 45 minutes before eating anything. Other than that, stop coffee, soft drinks and spicy foods. Some things will still set it off, but that's the best plan we've had so far. Good luck!

    I'm recovering from it now. I have to be honest, I didn't take any of the PPI's or other prescribed antacids. I just didn't like the possible side effects. Basically I stuck to the bland diet(chicken, rice, fish, veggies and fruit) a tums poor shot of mylanta here and there. I started taking a one a day probiotic. I'm feeling almost normal again. No more burning, or pressure in my chest and back.

      hi april..mylanta is anot available here in our locality, I am also a strong believer of the side effects of synthetic meds..thus I go for all natural..but that doesn't mean that I need to slice a papaya, everyday..or obtain fennel seeds and cardamom.. there are also natural products pack and revolutionized,specially for chronic constipation. great day.. let's go natural!

I myself am a witness of how these natural remedies helped my mama who suffered from cancer..though she is already with the Lord in heaven.I must say that she lived an almost pain free cancer.

    Hi,

    i was was never fully diagnosed with gastritis but I believe that was what I had. I had real trouble with my GP diagnosing me and sending me for tests and it was just a case of trying certain medications. I started on omeprazole which after a while stopped working, then I was put on ranitidine and lansoprazole which again worked for a while and then stopped working. Fortunately my symptoms died down so for the moment i am not on anything apart from prochlorperazine for the nausea but only take that as and when I need it. I used to take a swig of gaviscon before bed and that help with the heartburn. As for coping mechanisms, I struggled sleeping at night when it was really bad and j used to colour or play a game on my iPad to take my mind off of things to the point I was so tired I would fall asleep instantly. I hope this helps and good luck

    Hi. I was diagnosed in my early 20's (now 35). I take regular lanzoprozole and avoid acidic and spicy foods. I always make sure I eat little and often and also try to avoid stress as this always sets it off. I haven't had an endoscopy for some years now but was told by the doc that it is very common in young women. Hope this helps and you start to feel better soon. x
