IBS: You might have a condition called irritable bowel syndrome and not gastritis. It is a benign condition associated with anxiety or stress.

Gastritis dx 1 month ago - due to ingestion of extreme hot sauce. Strict 1200 calorie diet but binged Friday (4k calories+!) - belching returned + left side pain/cramping. Should I be worried?

Good luck. ...Read more
