Patient Comments Read 4 Comments
Symptoms of gastritis do not always correspond to the extent of physical changes in the lining of the stomach.
In people who have gastritis symptoms, pain or discomfort in the upper abdomen are the most common symptoms.
Other symptoms of gastritis include the following:
In more severe gastritis, bleeding may occur inside the stomach. Erosive gastritis causes an erosion of the gastric mucosa leading to bleeding.
Any of the following symptoms can be seen as well as those already mentioned.
Any or all of these symptoms can occur suddenly. This is particularly true in adults older than 65 years of age.
When to Seek Medical Care for Gastritis
See your health-care professional if your symptoms are new, long-lasting, or worsen despite self-care.
Seek immediate medical attention if you have any of the following symptoms.
