Possible: It's definitely possible that antral gastritis can be causing your symptoms. If you've done standard imaging and other tests looking for h.Pylori, it might be beneficial to talk with your doctor about getting an endoscopy (if it's been a while since you had your first one ). Best of luck to you!
