For the past month or so I began experiencing really bad what felt like hunger pains. I would wake up in the morning and hit the exercise bike to reduce my stress for the day. Halfway through my routine I began getting really hungry. I didn't think much of it because I was use to going hours without food and being fine. Only an hour or two later I began having such bad hunger pains I thought that I was going to pass out. I ate something small and it all went away. Ever since that incident I would have hunger pains, gurgling, and belching every 2 hours of every day it seemed. No matter how much I ate it would return. I went to the docs and they ran a full panel of bloods. Tests came back normal ( diabetes, thyroid, liver, kidneys, heart and so on). My doctor said that I am healthy from what he can see. He told me I most likely have gastritis or a hernia. If I snack all day long it stays maintained but it won't go away. He prescribed 2 zantacs a day for two weeks with no spicy food. I do not drink alcohol but I do smoke. I stopped all coffee as well. I drink a lot of tea now. I do not have the common symptoms of vomiting, diarrhea, or stabbing pains but I do have really bad hunger like pains at times. Does this sound like gastritis to anyone or does or has anyone had the same symptoms? If so what worked for you? I will be starting the Zantac today even though I hate medicine lol
