I'm new to this forum. I'm a 32 yr old male and I've had gastritis for 3 months now. 2 months back I had an upper scope (EGD) performed that showed gastritis and biopsies were negative for h. Pylori. Well just last week I had another upper scope done. Still waiting on biopsy but the Dr did say the gastritis has gotten much worse. I've been taking prilosec 40mg, carafate (liquid) and pepcid for my symptoms and to help heal the gastritis but its not helped much. I've also been on a very strict bland diet as recommend. I've had ct scan, stool samples, blood work, stress test, EKG's, and urine samples that were all ok. My gastritis causes me nausea, dizziness, head fog, burning in the upper abdomen and chest and a lump feeling in the throat. My biggest question is why are the drugs I'm taking not helping much? Could I possibly have bile reflux since the ppi isn't working? Also anyone know any soothing remidies or foods for gastritis? Any replies much appreciated. Thanks!
