I don't have A-typical Acid Reflux, I had a colonoscopy and Endoscopy (I am only 3 was told I have a chronic Gastritis and a inflamed duodenum. I tend by the end of the day to get nauseous. I am on Nexium once a day,which I usually take in the am. Any other suggestions?
I have the same exact symptoms and treatment....this is terrible....I wish someone could help us.....I don't know what to do....mine is so severe I have swollen lymph nodes in my abdomen now.....any help would be greatly and I truly mean greatly appreciated....now the doctors try to write it off as IBS or anxiety.
Hi i also have the same symptoms. I have been taking 30mg lansoperazole and zantac 300mg which has helped emmensly. I found staying clear of alchol and fatty foods help. Im now going to try the alkaline diet as this creates less acid in ur stomach, thus allowing it to heal quicker! Are you feeling any better yet?
I so appreciate all of your help. The 30mg of lansoperazole you take is that a prescription or over teh counter? Can you please tell me if you take that at the same time as you take your zantac or one morning and one at night? I ask because I have tried so many medications and seen 5 doctors for this issue and each one says something different. Currently I am taking 40mg of Nexium in the morning 1 hour before breakfast with a large glass of water. This news about the food is great because I have been attempting to research that with no avail and the doctors all say no dietary restrictions. I had an endoscopy and they removed 2 small polyps (noncancerous) and said they were not the cause of my symptoms, which is true because I am still in so much pain. It feels like my stomach is being strangled. Lastly, the only real thing I have been told is severe gastritis.....inflammation.....so now what I ask and the gastroentrologist says try this medicine called raglan that may cause paralization of some sort.....that the meds move the food through the stomach quickly....I opt out of that, but have been considering because I have so much pain. The nexium only seems to help almost a good amount with the heartburn...but I still have it and the nausea is less with it.....put the pain all over my abdomen and tenderness is so bad I cry and sometimes am on the floor. Thanks for reaching out to help encourage me (a stranger)....Thank you so much!
I have an inflamed duodenum and all the tests came back negative for bacteria, colitis, etc. For me I have irritable bowel too (basket diagnosis to cover anything really) so when I'm going a lot my inflammation symptoms are much worse. If I just take Zantac and Pepto Bismol (which you can take long term according to my Doctor) this only helps some. The major help is Paxil (a serotonin uptake/reuptake drug) which slows my digestion and also calms any anxiety (it does have some negative side effects - sexual function mainly - so you have to balance what is more important). When I'm on Paxil I don't have much problem, but still take 1 Zantac 175 each morning and a pepto bismol pill 1 to 3 times a day before meals. Good Luck.
Gastritis and peptic ulcer are currently considered infectious diseases. Gastric inflammation (gastritis), as well as stomach and duodenal ulcer (peptic ulcer disease), result from a gastric infection by the bacterium Helicobacter pylori. The inflammation is usually caused by hypersecretion of stomach acid.
One of the simplest and effective home remedy to cure gastritis would be to take a tsp of ajwain with a pinch of salt. Gulp this mixture with a glass of lukewarm water.
Coconut water also proves to be effective in treating gastritis. Take coconut water twice a day.
