I noticed I have gastritis symptoms, I took omemprozole but it made me have diarreah? Any suggestions of what I can do to help relieve this feeling?

PPI not the answer?: There are lots of stomach diseases that cause dyspepsia poorly responsive to PPI's. These can be categorized as: problems with inflammation (e.g. Ulcers), with infection (e.g. H.pylori or parasites), with motility (examples: gastroparesis, gastric outlet obstruction), with secretion (hyper or hypo-acidity), infiltrative (lymphoma, cancer), blood flow (gastropathies), functional dyspepsias, etc. ...Read more

I've been given ranitidine by my dr for gastritis symptoms, day 5 now and no improvement of symptoms and have today started to get acid like diarrhea... Is this normal? Aldo should mention this is the second time in 12 months, symptoms went away with zant

Gastritis: Not that there is anything wrong with Zantac...but if your having significant symptoms a Proton Pump Inhibitor is best. It needs to be taken on an EMPTY stomach (20 minutes before eating). It is OTC...several brands like Prilosec, Prevacid and Nexium (esomeprazole). Just ask your doctor, If the symptoms are stubborn..or re-occur...see a GI doc for an endoscopy. ...Read more

Stress, not eating for a few days cause gastritis?(Symptoms before no eatin)Doctor says I have it. No tests tho. If so can I eat scrambled eggs still?

NO: NEITHER STRESS NOR NO EATING for a few days CAUSES Gastitis!! Stress is a factor but a combination of decreased resistance to ACID plus in many cases a BACTERIAL infection (H PYLORI) are the major causes of gastritis! BTW "STRESS" CERTAINLY does NOT HELP! Consult with your Primary Care Provider! Hope this helps Dr Z ...Read more

My GI doc is saying that my gastritis symptoms are not in proportion to what she observed on endoscopy. She is saying I need pain modulation therapy??

My GI doc is saying that my gastritis symptoms are not in proportion to what she observed on endoscopy. She is saying I need pain modulation therapy??

Gastritis: The physical findings, I suspect result of a direct visualization, likely scope, are not impressive enough to justify the amount of pain or discomfort you are experiencing. There are 2 possible options, to look for a different source for the pain or having it addressed as chronic pain with no organic substrate and this maybe the context pain modulation therapy may help with as referred to. ...Read more

Hospital gave me a script for Zantac (ranitidine) today and told me to call the gastro Monday for an appt. Should I be worried? Gastritis symptoms, should I worry?

Gastritis is common: Gastritis is common, but certain serious underlying problems such as malignancy need to be ruled out if it does not respond to therapy. You are 31 and so this is very low likelihood. GI doc may opt to treat and see how you respond before intervening (depending on your exam and complete history).Avoid nsaids until cleared by your physicians.http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/176595-treatment ...Read more

Can stomach metaplasia cause a reduction of gastritis symptoms? If so, the patient feels better about health, when cancer risk actually *increased*...

Can stomach metaplasia cause a reduction of gastritis symptoms? If so, the patient feels better about health, when cancer risk actually *increased*...

No: Metaplasia of the mucolsal cells of the stomach represents a prevancerous state leading to a malignant ulcer or diffuse areas of carcinoma. Gastritis sympotoms have to do with acid production with benign ulceration and inflammation unrelated to precancer. By having metaplastic cells, these should be carefully examined prior to coversion to cancer which can then invade and spread. ...Read more

Can you get gastritis symptoms from restricting food intake to very low calories a day? Very nauseous, dry heave, pain, gas, bloat?

Gastritis: Stress and chronic anxiety may play a role in developing gastritis as well as peptic ulcer. Your symptoms may also be caused by improper eating, irritable bowel syndrome, lactose or gluten intolerance, gall bladder or pancreatic disease, some medications, or excessive alcohol or caffeine. I recommend that you be examined by your physician or a gastroenterologist for diagnosis and treatment ...Read more

My daughter was admitted to hospital a few weeks ago and diagnosed with gastritis.  The symptoms passed after a few days but now the pain is back, what should we do.

There are many: MANY causes of abdominal pain, gastritis is one of the more common causes. Have her go see a GI specialist. In the meantime, try PPI such as omeprazole. It should help if pain is caused by acid over production causing gastritis. If she is unable to eat/drink, develops diarrhea, fever, chills, or worsening pain especially in lower abdomen, she needs to go to ED, it could be appendicitis. ...Read more
