I had a gastroscopy yesterday 8/9/17 and was diagnosed with moderate gastritis. I had been experiencing heartburn for 5 months and a periodic pain just above my belly button. I have been taking anti-inflammatory drugs for arthritis for years with no problems but then my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer and that's when the heartburn started so it was put down to stress. However it continued after his death so I went to the general physician (GP) again and she sent me for the gastroscopy, so I guess the stress of my husband’s diagnosis tipped my stomach over the edge. I'm seeing the GP Monday to see what medicines to take but need to look at my diet too..

I was diagnosed with gastritis 2 years ago and celiac disease this year. I am eating a gluten free diet. I was prescribed omeprazole which caused bad side effects. I was prescribed ranitidine and took the drug for 1 year but it did not reduce gastritis. I still have symptoms and bleeding. I am extremely anemic (iron count 3) and have intravenous iron infusions every couple months. I despair of ever being healthy again. I sleep most days. Good luck to those with these symptoms..
