Hi everyone, I am new to these forums so please be forgiving of my mistakes.
I'm 17 and this September I was diagnosed with atrophic gastritis. My doctor put me on rantadine and zantac for a while and it seems to be helping somewhat. But every now and again I still get "attacks" where I feel bloated nausea cramping etc. And these usually start in the late night/early morning and on through the morning. It's getting to the point where these attacks are interfering with my attendance at school. I've missed around 13 days due to this illness, and I'm really starting to get sick of it.I hate missing school. So is it normal for this to drag on for this amount of time? Should I go back to the doctor? Any help or tips would be much appreciated.
I also would like to note I have lost about 20 pounds in the last 2 months from not eating as much and cutting back.
