In brief: Stomach upset

The suffix "itis" means "inflammation".
The prefix "gastro" means "stomach." the term "gastritis" thus means an "inflammed stomach." the term is often used imprecisely to mean stomach upset, which can derive from both acid ; non-acid causes, slow emptying of the stomach, h.Pylori infection, atrophic ; hypersecretory problems. Try acid blockers ; diet modification, recommended by your doctor.
