    Hi I really wouldn't worry about it

    If you see the ration the odds are very slim. 95% of America have some sort of stomach issue

    Good luck

    Don't google your symptoms because it will make you worry and this will make your symptoms worse.  Rather wait for your biopsy results and trust what your doctor tells you.   Following a gastritis diet along with PPI medication will help your gastritis to heal.

      If you are anxious about your symptoms, tell your doctor who will be able to give you accurate information and reassure you.  Googling my symptoms sent my panic and health anxiety through the roof.

    Definitely take pippa's advice and stay away from Google.  Googling my symptoms in the past caused me to have a panic attack.  Gastritis is a very common stomach disorder.  If your gastritis is caused by h-pylori then you'll go on a two week antibiotic treatment plan to eradicate the bacteria. However, it doesn't always get eradicated the first time, so there's a chance you may have to do a second round.  If you do end up having h-pylori, go get yourself a strong probiotic, at least 50 billion. Stick to a VERY clean diet during those two weeks.  No dairy or gluten, keep the sugars, carbs, fats and acidic foods very low.

    If h-pylori comes back negative, then your doctor will prescribe most likely a PPI, but I highly recommend taking an H2 blocker instead.  Much safer with less side effects.  You'll take the acid reducer daily and stick to a clean diet.  Keep a food diary of what you eat.  Eliminate foods that cause any discomfort.  Of course, stay away from the typical triggers like acidic foods, greasy/oily foods, tomato based foods, soda/carbinated drinks, coffee, spicey foods, chocolate, heavy processed foods, etc.  Everyone is different, find the foods that are gentle for your stomach.

    Additional supplements that can help speed up the healing process:

    L-glutamine

    DGL

    Digestive Enzymes

    Probiotics

    Zinc L-Carnosine

    Slippery Elm

    Keep your stress down, drink plenty of water, get plenty of sleep and most importantly, be patient.  Gastritis doesn't heal overnight, it can takes several months to heal.
