I have been suffering with GERD and IBS for many years and take the usual buscopan, fybogel, ranitidine and esomeprazole at various times, Have been suffering with gastritis for a few weeks now and was told by a GP to take slippery elm, I am not usually a great believer in taking these wacky meds but after just 5 tablets, I am virtually pain free. On Friday night I nearly went to A&E the pain and burning was so bad in the middle of my stomach I was in agony, unable to eat, drink or sit straight. On Sunday I started taking 600mg tablets 20 minutes before each meal. So I have taken 5 and after 2 I felt amazing, they dissolve and coat the lining of your stomach a bit like bonjela on an ulcer. They may not work for everyone but if you google they are a well known treatment for all sorts of stomach problems. I got mine from a local health shop and they were expensive £13.49 for a bottle of 90. Holland and Barrett do cheaper ones but you need to take more as they are a lower dose. I intend to finish the bottle and if that has sorted my gastritis out will stop, at least I can now enjoy my food a bit more.
