How long does it take for Gastritis to go away?

I went to the doctor last week due to some pain in my upper abdomen and excessive gas and the doctor told me that I have gastritis and to take some Maalox and to eat bland foods. Well, I've been doing that for about a week and have seen no improvement. When does this thing disappear? All this burping is getting annoying.

It depends upon it's severity....

Culd take just about an hour for mild cases n weeks altogether in severe conditions...

What is the common treatment for gastritis?

Im positive I have gastritis, or even an ulcer. Ive been under some stress, and havent been eating right. This wouldnt be the first time Ive had it, but I really want to know if the medication I took is good enough (ranitidine). Please, only serious answers, OK?

If it gets any worse you should see a doctor right away. I've had it and I ended up in the emergency room. But I was fine after wards. I had to only eat soup and jello. Liquids, for like a week.  (+ info)

How can i know if my gastritis is hereditary, chronic or acute?

Also, if its hereditary does that mean you'll have it for the rest of your life? My uncle started to have gastritis when he was my age (14) and has had it for the rest of his life. the difference is he lived in poverty in guatemala. The doctors didnt tell me if it was any of this. all the doc told me is that im going to have have it for 2 months. i get tummy pains every other day, but its not as bad as it was 3 weeks ago.
please help.

Actually i had gastritis some time ago, and it has nothing to do with heritage. pretty much it depends of your work or live environment, what you eat, etc. it's pretty complicated.  (+ info)

What do you do about the dizziness caused by gastritis?

Gastritis has been better controlled by diet. However the dizziness continues to be bothersome, usually after meals. Any ideas?

Hi Mazie,

a feeling of physical as well as mental uneasiness combined with the gastric trouble you face in gastritis (especially after food ) can give birth to headache and dizziness.


You may have to take something more than the diet itself, as these symptoms are of gastritis only and if more relief is brought on to your digestive system, these should go by themselves. I don't think, there is anything which can take care of dizziness due to gastritis in particular  (+ info)

It entirely depends on your just how hypertrophied your heart muscle is. If the problem is mild then it may not impede on your life at all. If your problem is moderate to severe then some people are told to avoid strenuous exercise as much as possible.

With regards to diet, there are no specific foods you need to avoid bit it is important that you do not become too overweight as this will put a strain on your heart. Avoid alcohol too.
