Yes: Gastritis implies inflammation of the gastric lining. However, there are many causes of inflammation. And there are many degrees of inflammation. At the very least, consider a trial of an h2 blocker. If that doesn't work, consider a trial of a ppi. Both are available otc w/o prescription. But if symptoms persist, get tested for h pylori infection. You may also consider endoscopy to assess stomach.
