What causes gastritis? Recently stopped nexium for silent gerd and now i think I have gastritis.Stomach pains after eating acidic things mostly, gas, belching. Feels fine after a few hours. Didn't have this pain before I started nexium 2 months ago.

In brief: Gastritis?

How was silent GERD diagnosed? Any testing? Generally speaking, if you have been treated with Nexium (either prescribed or self-determined) for one month without resolution of symptoms, then testing would be advised.
Perhaps an abdominal ultrasound and EGD.
