Age 25. Have Gastritis (cause unknown). Developed swellings on left side of face after it. Start as lump along jawline then water down to rest of face?

Complex: You have symptoms that can involve many diagnosis. The swelling should be evaluated by a doctor and maybe have a biopsy done. Sounds like parotid gland involvement. Could also be side affect of medication, Are you on muscle relaxer? Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) can cause parotid swelling, excessive sweating, and gastritis. ...Read more

I have gastritis and my doctor told me only drink pedialyte and water. Im hungry, can I eat anything else without getting worse? It's been 24 hours

Gastritis: After 24 hours of nothing but clear liquids, I believe you need to slowly reintroduce foods with more nutritional value. But, I don't have you complete history so I really cannot go any further in advising you other than to strongly urge you to contact your doctor and get further guidance. ...Read more

Ive had gastritis for two weeks. I think the cause was taking doxycycline tablets without water. I am taking Pepcid (famotidine) now, how much longer will this go?

Ive had gastritis for two weeks. I think the cause was taking doxycycline tablets without water. I am taking Pepcid (famotidine) now, how much longer will this go?

Variable: General info: Symptoms of gastritis due to an irritant like doxycycline generally improve within days of stopping the irritant. Proton pump inhibitors (eg.omeprazole/Prilosec) help healing much more than treatment with H2 blockers (eg Pepcid). Persistent symptoms need clinic evaluation for possible ulcers, or for H. pylori infection which can delay healing & is treated with a combination of meds. ...Read more

Gastritis/gallbladder issues. pain in gut. labs show BUN 28 ,Creatine Bun ratio 30.30.told to drink water. should i worry? Gallbladder surgery soon.

Gastritis/gallbladder issues. pain in gut. labs show BUN 28 ,Creatine Bun ratio 30.30.told to drink water. should i worry? Gallbladder surgery soon.

Elevated BUN/cr: Would not worry. Likely due or dehydration as most people do not drink enough fluids. If other labs like creatinine alone are OK( which it appears to be as BUN is 28 and the ratio is 30 so creatinine has to be < 1 ) and liver functions are OK , don't worry . BUN is slightly higher in older individuals. . Good luck with surgery.

If chronic gastritis can lead to metaplasia of the stomach into intestinal membrane, could it draw water and cause constip. undetect. by colonoscopy?

If chronic gastritis can lead to metaplasia of the stomach into intestinal membrane, could it draw water and cause constip. undetect. by colonoscopy?

No: The intestinal metaplasia is a trivial finding and won't have the slightest impact compared with the enormous amount of real intestine you already have. Further, water absorption in the gut is passive. Most diagnosed "chronic gastritis" non-biopsy-proved is functional and unassociated with metaplasia in the first place. Look for some other cause of your constipation; consider diet / drinking h2o ...Read more

What type of diet should I follow for gastritis, dyspepsia, Ibs and acid reflux? I've been trying to drink more water and eat vegetables and fruits.

What type of diet should I follow for gastritis, dyspepsia, Ibs and acid reflux? I've been trying to drink more water and eat vegetables and fruits.

Diet for GI problems: The recommended diet would be different for each of those G.I. problems. The best diet for you would depend on which of these are actually causing you the most symptoms. I would see a gastroenterologist to help sort out your predominant problem and base your diet on that. Until then, a high fiber diet low in citrus fruits and tomatoes would be a good place to start. Good luck. ...Read more

How do you completely cure gastritis? My doctor is having me take nexium (esomeprazole) but I am in debilitating pain every time I eat or even drink water. He said I have an abundance of stomach acid. What do I do?

How do you completely cure gastritis? My doctor is having me take nexium (esomeprazole) but I am in debilitating pain every time I eat or even drink water. He said I have an abundance of stomach acid. What do I do?

Stick with it.: If your pain after eating or drinking is truly due to excess stomach acid, the Nexium (esomeprazole) should begin getting it under control within a few days. If you are not starting to get any relief within a week, you should return to your doctor for further workup and treatment. In that setting, you may benefit from an endoscopy or other tests for diagnostic purposes. Good luck. ...Read more

Burping/gas after eating or drinking anything, a sip of water will make me burp.  Any movement like sitting up or standing up.  Gastritis or h pylori?

Ck with your doctor: Your history of belching, burping, gastritis, use of pepto-bismol all points to some form of gastrointestinal imbalance. You may need to have a food allergy panel done, as certain foods that you might be allergic to may be causing you to have excess burping, belching, gas, bloating, even constipation, or diarrhea. So, the best thing to do is to see your doctor. He can do a simple test to check for h. Pylori. ...Read more

Treat Gastroparesis?: Gastroparesis means a slow-emptying stomach. Causes may be mechanical (obstruction, or the stomach outlet narrowed from healing of past inflammation, treated by endoscopic dilation), post-inflammatory (due to swelling of the stomach lining from ulcers, treated with acid blockers), or neurologic (as with diabetes, treated with rx that stimulates motility--domperidone, erythromycin, reglan, (metoclopramide) zelnorm) ...Read more
