I take gas x every day. They told me that I may have gastritis... And if gas x is a drug, isn't it bad every day?
Not necessarily bad: Gasx is simethicone, which works on gas. Not necessarily bad. However, if you have gastritis, you probably need to deal with the acidity as well. Acid buffers or blockers would help the gastritis greatly. Buffers such as antacids like maalox, mylanta, tums, etc work well. Acid blockers like zantac (ranitidine) or Pepcid (histamine blockers) or prilosec/ Prevacid (proton pump inhibitors) are very effective. ...Read more
Probably: Both anxiety and gastritis can cause gas. Anxiety attacks can lead to accidental swallowing of air from hyperventilation. That air has no where to go but down and can becomes flatulence. Gastritis can cause gas if the cause of the gastritis produces gas. Certain bacteria produce gas as an effect of their normal metabolism. If they are the source of the gastritis then they too can cause flatulence. ...Read more

Yes, it is possible: And you can try Prilosec or prevacid (lansoprazole). But if it travels to right lower quadrant, it could be appendicitis.

It's gas.: Increase gas formation in the stomach, and therefore belching up gas, has a number of causes. Aerophagia (literally eating air) can be caused by eating too fast, not chewing food well before swallowing, smoking, anxiety, certain foods, carbonated beverages. Avoid all of these, and you will finds less of the problem: think, chew, chew, chew, eat slowly and in a relaxed atmosphere. ...Read more
My message was cut off. Is it normal to have painful gas after eating w/gastritis while being treated w/ppi and & following a fodmap diet? No h.polori
Possibly: You may not be adequately treating the acid, or you may have an issue other than the fermentable saccharides. Take PPI 1/2 hr before food for best effect, and consider a higher dose or use 2x a day to decrease your acid. Gas can also be an issue with carbonation, swallowing air when chewing, high fiber intake, bacterial overgrowth, gluten intake etc. See GI if not responding as expected. ...Read more

I recommend that you be examined by your physician or a gastroenterologist for diagnosis and treatment ...Read more
