Gastritis is causing all the pain. It's a killer. I have to laugh when doctors say, "Oh, everything is fine, just a little gastritis." Gastritis is awful and extremely painful and it takes a year and a day to ever go away. Are you taking any PPI's to help heal the gastritis? I took protonix
for about 8 weeks and it was the "Only" thing that helped me. At first I had bad headaches, but knew I had to ride it out in order to heal myself.
