I've was diagnosed (endoscopy) with mild gastritis in my lower stomach about 2 years ago and recently it's got worse. I now get a stronger pain and sometimes it spreads around the lower rib cage. I guess I haven't helped myself with drinking the odd coffee and eating meals containing tomatoes, either of which are not good for the condition. What I would like to tap into here is advice regarding managing the condition and hopefully giving the stomach a chance to repair itself.
What are the major irritants apart from caffeine, tomatoes and chocolate that I should avoid?
Has anyone managed the condition to the point where it has gone away?
I sometimes find drinking lots of water or a glass of milk seems to provide some temporary relief. What helps you?
If I did decide to take medication what would people recommend to take short term to maybe help the recovery process along?
How important is proper diet to getting over this completely?
Any help would be really appreciated, many thanks
