How long should i wait till i can drink alcohol again after having gastritis?

Can you have gastritis and acid reflux at the same time?


I was diagnosed with gastritis not too long ago but I have been showing acid reflux symptoms for awhile. Is it possible to have both of these at the same time? I am on Nexium, is this medicine for acid reflux as well? Thanks.
Acid reflux disease symptoms with gastritis.
----------

Yes I have also suffered from these at the same time. I did my own research and discovered it is caused by a bacterial infection in the gut and cured mine by eating lots of unsweetened yogurt. It puts the balance of good and bad bacteria back into the stomach. Try it and good luck.  (+ info)

Which foods are bad for gastritis?


Is fried food such as Cutlet or any other food which are fried in oil in pans bad for Gastritis?
I’ve had some of them and my gastritis was disturbed. (I’ve had this chronic illness for years).
Oh, and why, digestion of apple is this much hard for our stomach. Whenever I have an apple, later I feel pinching in my stomach and it seems apple are disturbing my gastritis and also banana is doing so. I wonder banana is soft and not a hard fruit, but why does it really excite your Gastritis?
----------

You should talk to your doctor before stopping any medicine or starting any gastritis treatment on your own. Also if its been years since you last spoken to them.
I have stomach problems also and find that avoiding any fruit with seeds better off for my tummy as well as nuts and most cooking oils. If oils are required then I make sure it is olive or corn and very little are used, mainly a "baked" and/or "broil" diet makes my stomach happier. A big no-no is FRIED foods.  (+ info)

Is it normal for gastritis to last months due to alcohol?


3 week ago I had a lot to drink. I normally do not drink that much. The next day I had stomach pains. Doctor diagnosed me with gastritis. I am to take Prilosec for the next 2 months. Has anyone else had this condition happen and how long did it last? Did you have any relapses afterward? Any advice for healing?
----------

Gastritis is the term for any one of many diseases or conditions that cause an inflammation of the stomach lining, if it is sudden in onset, the condition is acute (this sounds like your case) if it is persistent, it is chronic. Acute cases can become chronic depending on the cause.

Treatment by acid blockers is a standard. The condition can last for days or weeks, but depending on what you eat or drink, you can actually continue to irritate the area. Avoid greasy or overly spicy food, alcohol, coffee, or highly acidic foods, even with an acid blocker, these can still irritate. If your symptoms persist as long as a month or months, further diagnosis is in order as something besides just acid can be irritating the stomach, go back to your gastroenterologist.  (+ info)

Do you have any remedy to treat gastritis ?


Do you have any remedy to treat gastritis ?
Do you think that gastritis is treatable?
----------

Maalox, liquid or chewables. And go to your doc and get prescription Prilosec. It does wonders for me. But you have to take it every day.  (+ info)
