Has any lost weight due to Chronic Gastritis?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have lost quite a bit of weight due to Chronic Gastritis.

I have had all kind of tests and everything came clear except Gastritis in Endoscopy.

I have stomach pain since 6-7 months, its on the left side and persistent.

I do have normal appetite and eat properly, though I am on a restrictive diet, no fat and non spicy food.

Has anyone else has lost weight due to Gastritis?

    I have been experiencing the same thing. I was diagnosed with gastritis in January. Since then I have lost 40 lbs, yes 40! I'm only 5'5" and for years I weighed 170, I am now 130. I eat like normal, except lately I have developed severe constipation. I also have been having pains on my left side, right below my ribs. Sometimes I get pains on my right side as well. I also have lower back pain often. I've had blood work, stool samples and ultrasounds done. The only thing they keep saying is gastritis. I have an appt coming up in a few weeks with a G.I. Specialist. I'm hoping to get answers as well. So know, you are not alone. I'm experiencing it as well. :-)

      I am so sorry that you are having to go through this.

      I know how painful it is.

      My pain is persistant and my stomach feels sore on pressing, which means inflammation.

      Do you have soreness on pressing stomach as well?

      I had also had an ctscan to rule out other structural abnormalities and it came clear too.

      Had you tested for hpylori? Mine was negative.

      You can test for it, if it comes positive then you can start antibiotics to relieve your symptoms.

      Thanks for replying!
