I started taking Nexium 40mg and got a lot of improvement after 5 months of gastritis. I used to have pain but now I just have belching and a weird feeling. Can I up my dose to another dose of 20mg Nexium in the evening to get rid of symptoms?

Nexium and gastritis: Are we sure you have gastritis and not something else, like reflux/hiatal hernia or a gallbladder issue? If you’re somehow still symptomatic after five months of treatment, the diagnosis should be re-examined. That being said, you shouldn’t take any more than 40mg of Nexium daily. ...Read more

If you continue.: Your stomach is reacting to your indiscretion. If you don't continue to abuse it, you will not suffer. Stick to a bland diet with small meals and your stomach will not be hurting. A plant-based, whole food diet will result in the least health problems in the future.
Right now, you may get relief with some Tums (calcium carbonate) or Rolaids; which are over the counter antacids. ...Read more

Extreme burping with gastritis what could be the treatment?

Burping issues: Involuntary belching after a meal is normal, caused by release of swallowed gas after distension of the stomach with food. Magenblase syndrome is postprandial epigastric fullness & bloating, relieved by belching. Aerophagia (accumulation of gas due to air swallowing) is common with anxiety, hypersalivation from gum chewing, smoking, drinking, oral irritation. In some, belching can become habitual. ...Read more

Past 3 mornings I've been having GERD gastritis pain and burping for a few hours after I wake up. Seems ok at night. What cause pain in mornings?

Past 3 mornings I've been having GERD gastritis pain and burping for a few hours after I wake up. Seems ok at night. What cause pain in mornings?

It's not unusual: ... To have GERD symptoms in the mornings, considering that a lot of people's reflux is worse when they are lying flat in bed. If you have heartburn upon awakening, I would try antacid such as Tums (calcium carbonate). If you find that you need this more than 2 to 3 days a week, you might want to see your doctor for a trial of a medication. In the meantime, avoid any things that brings on your symptoms. Good luck. ...Read more

Why do I burp so much? I don’t have gastritis and neither do I have GERD... I did have my gallbladder removed but not sure if that’s relevant

Burping occurs from: Swallowing excessive air. This can be a reflection of dental misalignment or eating and swallowing too rapidly. Regardless it is not detrimental. Try cutting your food into smaller bites, eating slowly and not talking with your mouth full. ...Read more

Diagnosed with gastritis, and have a large gallstone, how do you know which one is bothering you? Pains right side, and back, burping, and bloating

Diagnosed with gastritis, and have a large gallstone, how do you know which one is bothering you? Pains right side, and back, burping, and bloating

SoundsLikeGallbladdr: The location and description of your pain sounds like it is secondary to gallbladder disease. These attacks typically occur after eating (esp. Fatty foods), last for an hour or more, are assc. W/nausea +/- vomiting, and may radiate into the back. Gastritis is an almost-universal finding at upper endoscopy; if it caused any symptoms, I would expect burning discomfort relieved by eating. ...Read more

I have gastritis, and I can't stop having full discomfort and I am always burping and passing gas. Constant pain. Is it best to get an endoscopy done?

Sure sounds like it: Once you're sedated, a tv camera on a thin, flexible tube is inserted through your mouth, & is passed gently into your esophagus, stomach, & upper part of the small intestine. Depending on the reason for the exam, biopsies may be taken for H.pylori bacteria, celiac sprue, eosinophilic esophagitis, Barrett's esophagus, polyps can be removed, bleeding can be controlled, & other samples collected. ...Read more

Doctor diagnosed mild gastritis in antrum and prescribed me PPI it helped me to reduce gas in chest and burping but its getting back what should I do?
