Get EGD: when Dyspepsia or gastritis persists, you need to get Endoscopy(Esophago-Gastro-Deudenoscopy) to check the kind of stomach problem you have, and check for H.Pylori(a type of bacteria which causes Gastritis/Ulcers). Go to you doctor, and they can also prescribe you other classes of medications such as Omeprazole etc. Ofcourse avoiding Alcohol will help. Be Well
