    Maybe it is your gastritis if that showed up on your scope. Try avoiding chocolate, coffee and greasy, fried or spicy foods which can aggravate gastritis.  Try cutting out gluten to see if that is causing bloating.  

    If it is IBS, that can cause change of bowel habit. bloating, stomach pain that moves about your stomach and changes in type or intensity.  Do you have any of these other symotoms apart from the bloating?

    If you had an ulcer, it would have shown up on your endoscopy and you would have been told about it.

      Is the pain in your digestive tract stomach pain?  If you are not lactose intolerant, try drinking milk to coat your stomach.  It is very good for getting rid of acid.  Some foods can be gassy like brussels sprouts, cabbage and broccoli.  Try avoiding or reducing your intake of these vegetables if you eat them

    You have gastritis, that's what showed on the endoscopy. It takes a long time to heal. Your Dr should put you on PPI med for a while to give your stomach time to heal. Also take liquid antacid to coat the stomach. Food wise avoid foods that are spicy or acidic including citrus fruits and fruit juice.
