I have a mild case of it where it cames in waves. Once I had to go to hospital. they had me drink a chalk-like substance. Keifer really has helped me! Also, I am very careful of what I eat if I feel it coming on. Pepcid helped.

I always have that. As I have a ileostomy and a million other issues. They usually prescribe me something like protonix or something for whatever symptoms I’m having at that very moment

You need to ask an MD because you might be surprised how many things can cause gastritis and things you didn't know re: how to treat it! Case in point. I had weight loss surgery almost 20 years ago. I always got gastric symptoms, including excruciating pain on the weekends during my first year postop while I was "stabilizing" and was afraid it meant I'd lose my gallbladder (1/3 of peo0le with the gastric bypas at the time did). the pain was right over my gallbladder!. Since it was the weekend, I had to drive myself to the ER and stop several times along the way, hang my head out the driver's side open door and throw up! Then, I was doubled over in pain; so, they'd put me in a wheelchair. Every one of the 3 times, it proved to be a simple but agonizing case of "gas"! They'd send me home to rest until the next time. So, lesson learned. always consult the medical professionals, not friends and people on FB. Just my humble opinion. Don''t mean to sound judgmental. just want you to be safe. Good luck with it.

Actually, I partially take that back. Read the replies here and they had some really good ideas re: how to deal with the symptom! I drank lots of bubbly soft drinks at the time, too1 I'm just a little concerned that you find out (maybe you already have) about the dynamics of your gastritis. What is is and what can you do about it OTC and/or meds from a doctor?

Definitely should see a doctor but my own experience with it was that I needed to become aware of eating habits - trying not to eat closer than three hours before bedtime, minimizing chocolate and coffee, other irritants. I discovered that taking NSAID painkillers - Aspirin, Aleve, Ibuprofen etc - was bad for my stomach so I stopped taking anything except occasional Thankslenol. Also regular cardio exercise is just good for you in every way, including this. I also take Pantoprozole (Protonix) daily. I've been virtually symptom-free since I began all that.

Stay away from anything acidic, use Pepcid before meals if you need to. Look at the FODMAP diet to get idea of things to and not to eat until your stomach settles down. No dairy no caffeine and walk a lot.
