See answer: Stomach viruses (viral gatroenteritis) are common and usually go away with supportive care. Drink clear liquids (starve a virus) for 18-24 hours, than slowly increase your diet to soft "brat" diet, and as tolerated, you can slowly increase to a regular diet. Nausea meds may be helpful too. Usually, in time 1-3 days, you will feel better as it runs its course. Best wishes.
Possibly: A viral infection is typically an acute illness (weeks) and at this point you are describing a chronic syndrome (months). As far as infections go, CMV and herpes virus (viruses) and h. Pylori (a bacteria) are associated with chronic gastritis, as well as parasites and more rare types of bacteria. However, there are many non-infectious causes and it may be time to revisit your pcp or GI doctor.See 1 more doctor answer
