Stomach ulcer or gastritis

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach ulcer or gastritis


1752640 tn?1352767394 Gastritis is a more likely scenario. It might not be a bad idea to check with your doc and possibly ask for some testing. You may want to consider asking him to check for the presence of H. pylori, the bacteria that is implicated in causing stomach issues and gastritis.
Avatar f tn Can Mucinex (Guaifenesin) cause gastritis or irritate existing gastritis/ulcer? I was taking Mucinex for 5 days, 400mg once a day, and now my stomach is bothering me (burning pain). I have suffered from gastritis and a gastric ulcer in the past. Could this medication cause or aggravate those problems? It was actually helping my sinuses to drain, but now I'm afraid to take it.
963268 tn?1312900315 Today, I take one Prilosec, 20-mg, and I have no pain. If you have gastritis and are not taken medication specifically for gastritis, your stomach lining can become worst, and you might develop an ulcer. If I were you, I would require your doctor, not his office staff, to confirm whether or not you have/had an ulcer caused by H. pylori? Also, inquire whether an acid reducer like Prilosec, Zantac, Nexium, Prevacid is prescribed for you?
Avatar m tn About 3 months ago I was violently sick on an empty stomach and after that started getting stomach pains, I felt like I had damaged something during the vomiting. I was diagnosed with gastritis and tried ppis which didn't help, then some homeopathic remedies and now on high strength Zantac which helps a little. I pretty much have a moderate stomach pain all the time which gets worse with any irritating food so I have been sticking to a bland diet.

Avatar f tn Stones can chronically irritate the gall bladder and cause inflammation and pain. The other causes could be gastritis, peptic ulcer disease and GERD. Kidney disorders too produce colicky and sharp pain. Sometimes anxiety with flatulence can cause this pain. You will need to consult your primary care physician for proper evaluation of pain and therapy. Regards.
Avatar n tn It could also be gastritis, or pain associated with a few other conditions. (Just as an example, mild gastroparesis could also present with GERD and stomach pain. Same with an H. Pylori infection.) I recommend you take this out of your PCP's hands and go see a gastroenerologist. That doc will probably want to do an EGD, and maybe a pH test. FYI: Headaches are a common side effect of PPI's. I've felt it myself. Good luck.

203342 tn?1328737207 h-pylori is the major cause of ulcers, and if they are not treated then they may turn cancerous, even if your gp eradicated h-pylori, without a scope you cant tell whether youve developed ulcers or gastritis, if you dont want to go through the procedure, then ask your gp if they will prescribe proton pump inhibitor medication for six months, in this time any ulcer or stomach linning damage should be healed, cheers.
203342 tn?1328737207 I’m starting to get a little worried what this could be. I’m wondering if it’s gastritis or a stomach ulcer. I do have a history of Crohn’s but mild and thought I was in remission. I see a gastroenterologist every 3-5 years for a colonoscopy and I’m due for one again. I was hesitant to make an appointment right now with everything going on and thought maybe it could wait but it’s really uncomfortable and nothing helps ease it, apparently. It’s very tender if I press on my abdomen area.
Avatar f tn The major symptom of an ulcer is a burning or gnawing feeling in the stomach area that lasts between 30 minutes and 3 hours. This pain is often interpreted as heartburn, indigestion or hunger. The pain usually occurs in the upper abdomen, but sometimes it may occur below the breastbone. Appetite and weight loss are other symptoms. It is important to follow the treatment plan exactly as your doctor has prescribed, and if you smoke, you should stop, as smoking inhibits ulcer healing.
1539130 tn?1292839257 go get the scope and they probably find out you have gastritis and acid reflux and possibly a hiatal hernia because alot of people develop things from eating and laying down right after and especially spicy foods you know? maybe you need prilosec or nexium to keep under control with the acid backing up in your throat and the sour taste you can get.....
1228153 tn?1267334916 pylori is a major associate with chronic gastritis and peptic ulcer. Eradication of the infection by antibiotic course (heli kit) in individuals will surely improve symptoms and may prevent gastric cancer. Since this bacterium has flagella and moves through the stomach lumen and do colonization in stomach that result into chronic gastritis, an inflammation of the stomach lining. Investigations include blood antibody test, stool antigen test, or with the urea breath test.
Avatar f tn I had an upper endoscopy. Esophagus clear , gastritis, 2 polyps in body of stomach and they said something looked as if it was pushing the stomach in the limits of the antrum-stomach and maybe its nothing but I should do an abdomen cat scan. What could they be looking for?
Avatar f tn The normal thing to look for with this type of pain is enlarged spleen, pancreatitis, hernia, mass on spleen or pancreas, ulcer, or gastritis.
Avatar n tn Obviously, increased gastric acidity or reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus can cause discomfort and changes to the lining of the esophagus. Whether an ulcer has formed or not needs to be assessed during the endoscopy. At the same time, your physician will be able to examine the lining of the stomach and esophagus for any other concerns. The important thing is that you are getting examined. Best wishes.

Avatar n tn Hello, Gastritis can cause pain in the upper abdomen after eating .Peptic ulcer disease causes upper left quadrant pain that usually begins 2 hours after a meal. It gets better with over the counter antacids. Stomach flu can cause indigestion and abdominal discomfort. Viral gastroenteritis can lead to nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. The exact location of pain and other details will help in determining the accurate cause .Take light meals. Avoid spicy fried foods.
Avatar m tn It may be gastritis or ulcer, these are actually two stages of the same process. They both usually start wit H. pylori infection, what causes increased acid secretion and leads toward gastritis or ulcer. It can't be said from the outside, if it is ulcer or not - only upper endoscopy would show that. But before this, just go and have breath test for H. pylori. If positive, it is treated with 2 weeks antibiotics. You can continue with omeprazole, but speak with the doctor about it.
