So I had an upper endoscopy done recently and I was diagnosed with gastritis (I also have had GERD for most of my adult life). The more I read about gastritis the more I become discouraged becuase I'm finding that most people are put on proton pump inhibators like Nexium or Prilosec, then their gastritis is cleared up. But I've been on 40 mg of Nexium daily for about 7 months now, and my gastritis seems to only be gettig worse.
- Has anyone else had gastritis for as long as 7 months?
- Also, has anyone been diagnossed with H. Pylori and are living in developed countries with clean water? I ask this because H. Pylori can cause long-term gastritis but is more common in under-developed regions with no access to clean water. So I feel like it would be impossible for me to get this bacteria where I'm living.
Anything would help! Thanks
