Gastritis: In my experience this is more of a symptom of an esophageal motility disorder rather than gastritis. In some cases of gastritis, prilosec has to be taken twice a day to be effective. You could try that, but if symptoms persist ask your gastroenterologist about the possibility of esophageal motility disorder in your case. ...Read more
