hi all seen this website while looking around suffering from gastritis. internet is a good thing but i trust the GP more, i am not a health professional the only reason i come here to see others suffering similar symptoms and how they deal with it.
long story short last year i have been diagnose with excessive stomach acid, after H -pylori test, blood test and some ultrasound and x-rays , i only seem to have folic acid deficiency . been given PPI 20mg omeprazole , h2 blocker and folic acid supplement by GP, these sort me out last year but seems like they are keep coming back and coming back even harder and stronger.
2 months ago i think i had a gastritis attack for the first time went to GP i was sure i had H-pylori symptoms was clear;
burping with or without food
loss of appetite
lack of energy/fatigue
GP ordered a stool test and blood test and soon as stool test done she said i should start omeprazole 20mg and i did. for the last 3 weeks didn't drink coffee and also been not eating anything spicy or take away or fast food or fried for the last 6 months. I am also a strong believer of good gut health so the probiotics are always for me. just finished my 100 billion doze a day probiotic.
H-pylori is negative , blood test is ( no action needed) clean .
once or twice a day i have been having mild pain last 3-5 minutes around my stomach ( upper just under my bones) which where is the stomach 😄
it has been 10 days since i have omeprazole but the symptoms still staying although they seem to come and go but there isn't a good amount of relief , acid reflux gone but every so often i seem to have gastritis flare up.
i burb, feeling bloated and cant eat and feel nausea ( mild to moderate) I check and read many things about gastritis and stomach problems, and while i was reading on this forum many people has the same thing going on PPI specially omeprazole doesn't seem to help that much.
GP still ones to see inside my stomach but i am quite against it , just because she can say its gastritis i don't want all the suffer. As clearly after all the test there isn't anything abnormal.
today another gastritis attack ( loss appitite, cant eat anything, mild pain last 10 mins a time, burping and nausea moderate ) (Is this how gastritis feels like? ) now she is changing me to Lansoprazole 30 mg ?
did any of you have a relief from this PPI ? is it may be omeprazole we all suffer from ? i am trying from tomorrow and hope to share the reviews of it. and i am hoping a relief from the symptoms .
Happy Christmas to all!
