I have had an issue that ruined my life for the past 5 years and wanted to see if some of you have the same issues.
I have had gastritis, and according to the burning sensation in my stomach, it may be continuing. Now, this is not the most problematic part of my issues, it seems to trigger some debilitating symptoms.
When I stand, I feel some stomach tension and can't stand for a long time. After a while, if I don't sit down, I would start to feel panicky and tachycardic. These episodes are invariably followed by copious belching.
I also experience, every couple of weeks, some stomach spasm (one off strong contraction), and would feel extremely unwell a couple of hours after. Never found out was this is.
Since this started, I feel fatigued, can't exercise and have lost weight. Nothing came out of the dozen consultations I had with my doctors. I am at a loss, let me know if you are going through the same ordeal or have ideas.

Seems you have severe bloating/indigestion and it's causing the problem, are you taking omeperzole?
I can't take PPIs otherwise the food just sit there, horrible feeling. I do take Ranitidine though.
Anxiety wont help you. Stop worry and be positive. Andnif you taking omeprazole or any of thoose they are well know causing bloating...nausea etc in long term use..
Shoot me a pm if you want.
I have bad gastritis myself.
I have constant burning..i mean permanently... no matter what i eat.. its there.... but i would not describe it as labour pain... but it all depends... if you have erosive gastritis..it can well be strong pain....
I am just testing water with foods and trying to stop taking omeprazole.... already halved dose by opening pills... its a poison in long rung.... deficit of vitamin b12 or E can cause much more damage to your body then gastritis on its own....
On another hand... the key i believe is to stay positive and motivated.... and jeep smiling....
For food...what works for someone may not be good for other people....so its all based on individual.... i have positive respond to lactose free milk....gluten free cereals... blueberries and gluten free pasta with courgettes and bit of brocoli... yes and thats it.... anything out of this and i am suffering.... its a mind game as well.....you have to be strong.
It can also cause osteoporosis. I was on the med for over 10 yrs, so that's probably how I developed it. It'really meant to be used short term.
Hope this helps xx
Hi Jacquie, I had an upper endoscopy and it showed mild gastritis that is "unlikely to explain my other symptoms" according to my doctor. I think I also have a form of CFS. What a terrible condition!
