I'm 30, and a year and a bit ago I was diagnosed with gastritis, which was manifest in short sharp acid refluxes at the top of my stomach below the rib cage. After some time, I seem to have got rid of them. Over the last few weeks though, I've been experiencing on and off, seemingly random pains in my stomach - as more of a dull ache - but more up on my chest as short sharp bursts of pain and also as the occasional dull ache at the bottom of the right side of my rib cage.
I also get itches on my rib cage and around the stomach area, also occasionally on my back. I'm also experiencing mild inrequent headaches which come then quickly go.
I've still got some Pantoprazole and occasionally use one (every 4-5 day). This seems to sort out the chest pains although not the dull ache at the base of the ribs/stomach.
The pains are seemingly random. I've not drunk alcohol for over a month and I haven't smoked for two years. I also exercise daily. My diet is pretty good with minimal fatty, smoked and spicy foods. I did have a curry tonight though and am experiencing a few more pains and more itching.
Can all these symptoms be attributed to a relfux in stomach acid, despite the fact I haven't experienced it as I originally did? Do the Pantoprazole help? Does anyone have any advice?
Thank you to anyone who can empathise and take the time to reply
