Yes, But...: Theoretically yes, do you have any symptoms? The stomach lining is protected by mucus which is 99% water, are you drinking 8 lasses per day?

Yes: medications like NSAIDS-ibuprofen, naprosyn (naproxen) aren big culprits as is alcohol, purging-forced vomitting, and other foods like verity spicy foods repeatedly, caffeine-slot of coffee daily, and severe stress. I agree water is key also for you to drink.
