Most people recover from gastritis. Depending on the many factors that affect the stomach lining, gastritis symptoms may flare-up from time to time. Overall, gastritis is generally a common, mildly troubling ailment that responds well to simple treatments.
On occasion, rare forms of gastritis can be serious or even life-threatening. Severe, ongoing symptoms or internal bleeding should alert a health care practitioner to search for a more serious underlying cause.
