Symptoms Of Gastritis Inflammation
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it possible to have gastritis and low white blood count? I've always thought inflammation in the body means higher white cells counts...
Really not related: The two things may not be related. Also, the body reacts differently whether we have a viral illness (can have low white count) vs. A bacterial one (can have a higher count). Some inflammation in the body may not do anything to your white count. Please see your doctor if you are having any symptoms or worries. ...Read more
