Nervous Gastritis Symptoms
Yesterday I swallowed chicken with little bone. Now I couldn't feel any symptom such as pain. Is there any specific symptom could I feel if got stucked in esophagus. I havea gastritis. Differnt sympto?
You would know it's stuck in your throat: If it was stuck in your throat, you would have pain in your throat, and it would feel like something's not going down completely. So that's good. The gastritis may or may not be related to that. Chances are higher if the bone was small enough, and it's in your food, and passes out of your body as stool, you should have no problem. If the gastritis continues however, you need to contact your pcp, and have this examined further. ...Read more
Gastritis: Yes! If you take proper dietary precautions and treat the etiology for your symptoms. See a GI specialist. ...Read more
Gastritis: If your symptoms are truly due to gastritis, the answer is to treat the underlying cause of the gastritis. Adjusting your diet will not make much difference. I usually tell people to avoid any particular foods that give them trouble while you are treating the underlying problem. If you have not seen your doctor or a gastroenterologist, seek them out to find the cause. Good luck. ...Read more
See below: The symptoms of pancreatitis and gastritis can be very similar. They both cause pain in the epigastric region which is often made worse by food. Pancreatitis pain tends to radiate to the back, and tends to be more severe. If you think you may have either, see your doctor, as there are specific tests and treatments for both. In the meantime, avoid alcohol, smoking, and caffeine. Hope this helps! ...Read more

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

An ulcer is the most extreme form. Causes can be excessive acid production, alcohol, medications, smoking or infection with h pylori.

A lot faster with Rx: Unless there are other inciting risks to inflammation in your stomach (like h.Pylori, tobacco, too liberal alcohol, Aspirin or other nsaid's, etc.) your gastropathy will likely heal within a few days. Of course, you can speed up the healing process by starting an acid blocker drug like Prilosec otc daily. ...Read more

Biopsy findings are chronic. Your symptoms are out of proportion to the endoscopic diagnosis. This is in regards to my gastritis. What does this mean?
That the person who wrote this either wants to "reassure" you (the kindest interpretation) or thinks you are magnifying your symptoms (need some anti-anxiety medication etc etc)
Hope this helps

I still have the symptoms of gastritis although I finished the medications given. What should I do I still feel the urge of vomiting when I excercise?
Sure it's gastritis?: Vomiting reflex is controlled by 2 units in brain medulla--one receives nerve impulses from GI tract, the other is a chemical receptor. Both have nerve connections to not only GI tract (pharynx, mesenteric vessels, bile ducts) but also from brain corticobulbar areas that mediate smells, sights, & taste. Maybe you have gastritis, but maybe your symptoms have little to do with GI tract. Get checked. ...Read more

It's been suggested - not confirmed - that I may have Gastritis. I have mild SOB/wheezing-breathing, BUT with NO other symptoms. Think it's related?
Not necessarily: If your wheezing is periodic and associated while sleeping it could be related to aspiration symptoms associated with reflux esophagitis. However wheezing as a symptom can be due to cardiac or pulmonary issues as well. My suggestion would be to follow up with a doctor who can determine the etiology of your shortness of breath and wheezing. ...Read more
