My gastritis symptoms started with severe stomach pain between my belly button and my diaphragm. It was intense and lasted for over 5 hours without medication.

My gastritis started with a normal case of indigestion but it wouldn't/didn't go away. At the same time I started having middle back pain that really curtailed activity. After a week it started to wake me up at night; burning, fiery pain that one time went away with a strong pain reliever, but the pink stuff didn't touch it. Eating is not at all interesting to me and I've lost five pounds in a week. That part's not bad!

I get full easily after eating normal portions because of gastritis. I am not able to hydrate as much as I used to (3 to 4 liters a day down to less than 1). I have pain between ribs when stretching and running, intolerance to alcohol, and general core weakness; no sensation of strength from middle when biking long stretches of hills or inclines. Occasionally I have nausea, no appetite, dizzy/faint feeling; not the usual focus/alertness, and aches and pains in lower to mid back and shoulder area. I have frequent feeling of gas trapped in stomach, burping a lot, etc., and no tolerance for dairy products. I fatigue early and go to bed earlier than normal.

With my gastritis I have pain in the upper stomach and severe pain in my back. It seems to radiate from my stomach and around under my right armpit to the back. I also look like I am 8 months pregnant, I am very bloated. I had a Nissen surgery a couple years ago and the doctor told me I would not have to worry about gastritis again, man is he ever wrong! I am in so much pain.

I have had bleeding after food, wonder if gastritis can cause it.

I have been diagnosed with gastritis and H. pylori. I'm having severe aches and pain under my right rib cage going into my back.

Comment from: blueeyes, Female (Patient) Published: January 13

I had a gnawing pain on right side like something is under the rib cage. I was also belching a lot and I had a gurgling sound in my gut.
