What is gastritis?

A condition where the stomach's surface lining is inflamed. Weaknesses or injury to the mucus-lined barrier that usually protect the stomach wall allow digestive juices to damage and inflame the stomach lining. A number of diseases and conditions can increase the risk of gastritis, including a bacteria infection called H. pylori. Some symptoms are belly ache, belly pain, nausea and vomiting.

Symptoms of gastritis

  • Stomach pain or tummy ache in a specific place

  • Feeling uncomfortably bloated after meals

  • Stressed over daily life

  • Upper central abdominal pain

  • Feeling the need to pass motion even though nothing comes out

  • Nausea or vomiting after eating

  • Upset tummy / upper abdominal discomfort

  • Abdominal pain that worsens after meals

Questions your doctor may ask to check for gastritis

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose gastritis

  • Is your stomach pain localized to one specific area?

  • Do you feel bloated after meals?

  • Do you feel stressed or unhappy about going to work or school?

  • Do you have stomach pain in the middle of your abdomen?

  • Do you frequently feel the need to have a bowel movement but can't?

Treatment for gastritis

Treatment depends on the cause. You may be prescribed antibiotics to kill H. pylori bacteria or drugs to block or reduce gastric acid levels. Some patients may find relief through lifestyle changes like avoiding alcohol and spicy food, and stopping medicines that affect the stomach lining.
