Gastritis: That sounds like the diagnosis to explain your problem! You probably will be started on a kind of drug known as a proton pump inhibitor, such as omeprazole, or Prilosec. That will allow your inflamed stomach lining to heal. You may also have something called am H. Pylori infection, which can be treated by antibiotics and bismuth subsalicylate, or pepto bismol. Good luck!
