Gastritis Heartburn

Posted , 4 users are following.


I have had Gastritis for 5-6 weeks finally it seems to be improving on 40mg Omeprazole. However I get intermittent heartburn, maybe this down to something I have eaten even though I am eating a bland diet and avoiding acidic foods etc. Has this happened to anyone else? How long does it take for Gastritis to heal? I am fed up with it!

      Hi I have read this too. I want to come off the PPi but when I cut down I got stabbing and sore pains in stomach, so I will continue for the 4 weeks which Dr recommended, then hopefully be able to get off them.

    I m feeling sorry for you

    I had a indigestion for a couple years on and off

    then last September (2019) it got really bad, every day and pressure in my chest too.

    I went to see Gap, got tested for H- pylari , positive 😦 .I thought ok at least I got an answer , week of antibiotics , indigestion improved but stomach pressure and bloating was still there

    tested for h -pylari again still havent cleared , another, different lot of antibiotics.

    now in March 3 rd test- negative

    well .... guess what 😦

    we are in May now ,my stomach still not right , if not pressure its indigestion , if not that its bloating , pain on the left upper right and all sorts

    because pain and discomfort travels doctor is not concerned, well I m

    and I m fed up and tyred , no normal life since September

    good luck and hope you will get sorted

      Hi Thank you. Did you have Gastritis as well? I tested negative for H Pylori but have all the symptoms you describe. I am so fed up with it! I can't understand how the stomach pains have calmed right down, but I got bad heartburn last night on 40mg Omeprazole. The only thing I ate different was a rice cake maybe that aggravated things.
