I've had Gastrisis on and off now for about 1-2 months. I've had a gastroscopy to confirm it and biopsys done (waiting of results). I'm currently on omeprazole and gaviscon. The Gastrisis went completely for around 2 weeks, then after a McDonald's burger (my own fault I know) it came back! The first day of the flare up was horrendous, now it's settled down again, now 100% but I do feel maybe 80% better, I wake up around 5am with burning and cramps but they settle down as the day goes on then completely go... Same again day after.
When I first got the Gastrisis it was sudden, happened overnight and before that I've never had any kind of trouble with my stomach, or had issues with eating any type of food. My doctors guessing a bug has caused it but until the biopsys are back we won't know.
All I'm asking is if anyone has been in a similar situation and has got rid of it completely? I'm only 26, and a bit worried about living my life this way long term.
If it is a bug that's caused the problem, then when it's treated should the Gastrisis go?
