About 2 months ago i was throwing up and deficating excessivley, i went to the hospital and they gave me a lot of meds. I soon felt better. A couple days later i felt better and started to eat regualr foods again. Soon after that i woke up with chronic pain chronic nausea and throwing up again. 

       The doctor told me I had gastritis, and gave me more meds. Days later i felt better, but still very sick. I felt so nauseous for the next couple weeks. Soon the acidy pain in the stomach went away from the meds and the nausea was mild. That was about a month after being sick. 

        I ate a bland diet for weeks and felt almost 100 percent fine, than i slipped up and ate bad foods and drank beer and the stomach uncomfort comes and goes. Some days i can what i want with no problem and some days i can't with no medicine. 

         Now it has been 2 months with this mild gastritis, i have a busy next couple of months with parties and vacations. What should i do to permenantly elminate all the symptoms of gastrtitis. Please let me know. Thank you.

    Hi mate, ive suffered with gastritis and had a biopsy done which confirmed i had 'reactive gastritis' in other words it's always there waiting to strike! Poor diet will almost inevitably flare this up as the crap that's in the foods will cause you a lot of acid reflux and that's where it starts. I take 20mg omazropole daily and that has all but eradicated the problem! Bear in mind you have yu take these for like because they are not a short fix they keep the acid levels down so you have to maintain them. Hardly a chore you only have to remember to pop one in your mouth once a day 😀 i eat quite healthy but as you say if you have parties etc to attend then you can eat/drink because it's occasional but it couldn't be a way of life. Have your blowouts but try to just eat normally the rest of the time and take the PPI's ALL the time and there's your solution. It's about prevention not intervention. Hope it helps.

    Hi Anthony

    Have you been tested for h.pylori helicobacter pylori...it is a stomach bacteria that causes pain, sickness, acisdreflux and loose and frequent bowel movements. It is spiril shaped and burrows into the stomach wall and duodenum. It is tested via your stool or these days a breath test....it is treated with antibiotics......go back to your doc and request a test as a second opinion.......best wishes...

      Hi Anthony,

      Ask your doc for an H.Pylori test just as a process of elimination. Many people suffer with gastritic tums and pain in abdominal area ranging from upper abdominal to lower abdominal. It can be a range of causes. A friend of mine suffered for years with gastritis, she had HP test and it was positive...and those spiral shaped bacteria was the cause of all her suffering..She was prescribed strong antibiotics...she now takes probiotic tabs...they are good bacteria to keep your stomach flora in good condition and natural yogurt with grapes and blueberry they are antioxidants.....also liquorice tabs that HP hates because it kills HP. I would strongly recommend you ask your GP for the HP test.....best wishes.
