Pathophysiology Of Acute Gastritis
???: If you go to ED I am sure the doctors will help you to deal with it. Depending on the severity - if mild you could try dietary changes like no alcohol, no smoking, no spicy or greasy foods for a bit. Choose more easily digestable items- bananas, cracker, bread and clear liquids to see if you get relief. In addition OTC Maalox or Zantac (ranitidine) may be helpful but do not choose meds over diet change. ...Read more

You may also have gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd) with or without gastritis. I suggest that you talk with your doctor again to clarify things since they know the whole story. ...Read more

This condition is not common but recognized. Food intolerance, theoretically could but many more conditions are more common. ...Read more

It is a technical point, but one which is important. The metaplasia is the stomach's way of trying to react to the infection, but it needs to be monitored closely to avoid further complications. ...Read more
