If I have gastritis or an ulcer, will the PPIs always help? I've been taking pantoprazole for a month, and I'm still experiencing stomach burning.

If I have gastritis or an ulcer, will the PPIs always help? I've been taking pantoprazole for a month, and I'm still experiencing stomach burning.

Return to your doc.: If you are still having symptoms after one month of a PPI, you should return to your doctor to see if further testing needs to be done, or if you need a different medication or a change in the dosage of the current one. In the meantime, it will not hurt to add over-the-counter antacids, such as Tums, (calcium carbonate) to your regimen. Good luck. ...Read more

Stomach bug 6 weeks ago. Stomach burning. EGD neg gastritis & h pyroli. Was on 40 mg Protonix. Now on 60 mg Dexilant. Bland diet. Cause of burning?

Stomach burning: Do you experience heartburn or actual gerd? Dexilant is also a ppi like protonix. Occasionally reflux is due to reflux of bile and not acidic material, and in these cases, ppi's are usually ineffective. In addition to a bland diet, avoid fatty, fried or oily foods, alcohol, caffeine and nicotine to see if your symptoms resolve. ...Read more

Can I eat ice cream with mild gastritis? Would the coldness soother the burning in my stomach? I'm craving ice cream

Gastritis: Gastritis refers to inflammation of stomach lining. Calcium, H2 blockers & proton pump inhibitors, all available over-the-counter w/o prescription are often used to treat this condition along w/others, eg heartburn, indigestion, acid reflux, etc. I don't see any harm in eating ice cream (dairy products contain calcium, after all) but don't overdo it! Too many calories & not enough nutrition. ...Read more

I Always Feel Bloated And My Stomach Feels Like Its Burning. Is It Gastritis? How Is Will It Be Cured?

I Always Feel Bloated And My Stomach Feels Like Its Burning. Is It Gastritis? How Is Will It Be Cured?

First find Diagnosis: Yes it can be gastritis. But that diagnosis can only be confirmed with upper endoscopy (Gastroscopy). If that is the cause then it is easy to treat and it can be cured. Most often we use antacids of one type or another and this eliminates acid in the stomach which then heals in one or two weeks. Go see your doctor to find the cause, only then it is treated properly. ...Read more

Go to the doctor: You can start by taking tums (calcium carbonate) or an over the counter antacid and see if it helps. If you drink alcohol, stop as this worsens gastritis. Avoid aspirin and acids. Go to a doctor and check it out- preferably a gastroenterologist. ...Read more

I have minor gastritis. I feel some burning in the centre of abdominal when I use some oily or chilli things.

Diet: Minimize alcohol, antiinflammatiry meds, spicy foods, greasy foods, red meats. Watch for black stools which could indicate bleeding in the stomach from gastritis or an ulcer. Try Pepcid (famotidine) or Prilosec over the counter for 2 weeks and if no better see your doctor. ...Read more

Why could I take 20 Betaine HCL pills and feel no burning? I recently got diagnosed with gastritis with erosion, is it too much stomach acid?

Why could I take 20 Betaine HCL pills and feel no burning? I recently got diagnosed with gastritis with erosion, is it too much stomach acid?

Why did you take?: Betaine hydrochloride has an interesting history. Betaine hydrochloride used to be included in over-the-counter (OTC) products as a “stomach acidifier and digestive aid.” But a federal law that went into effect in 1993 banned betaine hydrochloride from use in OTC products because there wasn’t enough evidence to classify it “generally recognized as safe and effective.” Why were you taking 20? ...Read more

Total confusion: Acne is not related to B12. Why B12? How did you arrive at the diagnosis of gastritis? NO GASTRITIS IS CAUSED BY SPICY FOODS OR ACIDIC FOODS. This silly idea was thrown out 60 years ago. It may be related to smoking, alcohol, meds, H. Pylori bacteria.Coconut water is not effective therapy for gastritis or anything else. ...Read more

I've been diagnosed with gastritis but my PPI doesn't seem to be helping this time. I have awful burning pain in my upper abdomen. What else can I try?

Gastritis: The usual treatment for gastritis is antacids and medications that decrease the production of acid in your stomach. I assume you are on these medications. You can buy them yourself in the pharmacy. Omeprazole is an example of medication you can buy over the counter. If despite these medications you continue to have symptoms, you need to see a gastroenterologist and have endoscopy. ...Read more

Pain in the middle of the left and right side of stomach. I have gastritis and ulcer, take protonix (pantoprazole) everyday and have burning and pain when pushing.

Pain in the middle of the left and right side of stomach. I have gastritis and ulcer, take protonix (pantoprazole) everyday and have burning and pain when pushing.

Gastritis & ulcer: If you're still suffering from burning pain in stomach despite taking Protonix (pantoprazole) every day, ask your prescribing doc for another option like omeprazole or lansoprazole. Think of Chevy vs Dodge vs Ford (or Honda vs Nissan vs Toyota). All make reasonable cars but one might have better product for your specific needs. Same concept applies to PPIs. If no better, may need to check fo H pylori etc. ...Read more

Bile acid gastritis: I believe you had asked a similar question previously. I would recommend having an upper endoscopy to evaluate the gastritis. A trial of omeprazole for two weeks can help determine if your pain is due to stomach acid. If not then bile acid may be the issue. Carafate (sucralfate) works pretty well for this. ...Read more

Causes are stress, infection, recreational and other drugs, alcohol, and foods that are spicy or your body is intolerant to. You should see your MD ...Read more

R/O GASTROENTERITIS: R/O gastroenteritis: the symptoms you describe are consistent with this. You need to rest push fluids 64-80 oz/Dy. If symptoms persist you need to be examined and have labs checked and stool for Giardia/lactoferin/blood& H pylori the ulcer causing bacteria. Labs : : Amylase/lipase/B12/VITD/Folic Acid.

Find a better Dr: Are you ALLERGIC to aspirin? Sensitive people get asthma, coughing, or hives from it. Gastritis due to prostaglandin inhibition is a function of dose. Taking 4 adult size aspirin daily will cause stomach symptoms in many people. Taking a large dose makes no sense. If you are allergic to it, avoid it. Why diphenhydramine? It is used mostly as a sleeping pill. There are better antihistamines. Do you ...Read more

Of course not: No, this is not normal. How long have you been on the carafate and protonix (pantoprazole)? Alcohol use is listed as moderate, what was the indication for ativan? Was it to prescribed to lessen the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal? It would appear that an endoscopy (scope into stomach and part of small intestine) is indicated. ...Read more

Is it normal to wake up super hungry with stomach pain if I have gastritis and gallstones? Had a banana and still super hungry with burning sensation

Can be: Gastritis can be the source of burning sensation and is typically treated with antacids or medications that coat your stomach, protecting it from the excess and erosive acids. Gallstones can be dangerous and cause blockages. Typically treated with surgical removal of your gallbladder. Okay to ask to see a surgeon. Take family with you. Be well. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with precancer colon polyps and internal hemorrhoids and gastritis. Still have blood in stool with burning in my abdomen should I worry?

Depends: Gastritis should improve with dietary modifications, acid blockers, and possible H pylori treatment; if not, further evaluation may be needed. Colon polyps should be followed with colonoscopy anywhere from 6 months to 5 years later, depending on type of polyp and confidence in that it was completely removed. Internal hems bleed and the source needs to be addressed - constipation, straining, etc ...Read more
