Oh my God what was I thinking? I just ate a piece of world's greatest choclate the almonds kind. I love this candy so much and my grandson was eating a box and he gave me one. I just couldn't resist. Now, I have the worse burning in my stomach from gastritis. I was feeling so much better and now I'm starting over again. I've tried everything to stop this burning. Any suggestions on how to stop it or what may help it. It's from the stomach and goes to my lower back. It's been burning for 2 hrs. now.

    Have.you got any gaviscon in the house? Try that or may be peppermint if you can tolerate it? This may help, it could be the oil in the nut or the milk. Oops never mind, we all do it!

    Don't worry about heartburn. Simply take milk or an antacid; I have frequent heartburn and these things work for me.  Worry will make symptoms worse.

      Poppa so is the burning stomach actually from heartburn or the gastritis? Because I was just trying to do cleaning and the movements started the burning again. So I assume it's the inflammation of the stomach?

      If you feel burning in your stomach, that is heartburn.  Heartburn is also a gastritis symptom.  Gastritis is inflammation of the stomach lining.

    Warm some milk, and sip, even watered down milk, by about half as much water as milk, that worked best for Dad and he had shocking stomach problem for years. I find it helps with bad case of gastristsis.  Agree with Mary gaviscon will help as well, but you are limited to just how much of that you can swallow.

    Stay away from anything with garlic, onions, red meat, cinnnamon, or any of the spices to be honest.  I know it sounds awfully bland, but your tum needs a rest. Fish, Chicken, and plain veges, salad.
