I'm suffering terrible with gastritis and acid reflux. Has anyone got any ideas of any good herbal remedies please? I am taking omeprazole at present. I'm in terrible pain. I'm taking so many different tablets and my body is suffering so much. Please help I'm so worried.

Thanks,

Sam

    Hi sam6990

    Get yourself checked for HPylori a bacteria that lives in the gut and duodenum and causes pain and acid reflux...this can be done via breath test, stool test and endoscopy. There is also a blood test but is not always reliable for HP...if a positive result for HP you will be given a course of antibiotics ....best wishes....

      Thank you so much for taking the time to reply Lillian. I really appreciate any advice. I am going out of my mind tonight in awful pain and acidity. Antacids are not helping me and I'm so frightened. I am having to take Trimethoprim as well as Cephalexin and gabapentin as well as yeast reduction medication. I feel like my body is breaking down. If anyone else can advise me from their experience, I would be grateful. Thanks to you all.

    Hi Sam6990, the omeprazole should take most of the acid away, i had years of taking rennie each day and was put on omeprazole and pain has gone, sometimes to little acid can cause pain, i had a dry cough with mine and the doc said acid was coming into my throat and damaging my throat.I would go back to doctor and say tablets not making any difference so they can investigate it.Wish you luck.

    Try avoiding spicy and oliy, fatty foods.  Coffee, chocolate and alcohol can be triggers for gastritis too.  Omeprazole may be causing further irritation and may be conflicting with your other medications.  Don't worry because this can make acid reflux worse.

    I have acid reflux but I find herbal remedies either do nothing or make my heartburn worse.  I find milk and OTC antacids help me more.  I find very fatty and spicy foods cause me a lot of acid, so I avoid them.

      Thank you so much Pippa for your advice. I think that's my problem, I'm on too much medication. My bladder doesn't work and I have an embedded infection, so to keep me alive I am taking 19 tablets a day. It's crazy and also very stressful. I really can't believe my life has come to this.

      Thanks again,

      Have you seen any private urology specialists?   There are some if you do some googling.
