When I was having the gastritis issues they never really figured out what was causing them. The only real treatment was clear liquids and anti nausea meds. Eventually, I stopped going to the doctor for it because I knew what they would tell me to do. I found that I really needed/craved salt though. So I was having a small handfull of pretzels or saltines a couple of times a day. I drank chicken boulion like most people drink coffee. I always had a to/go cup with me full of boulion. In fact I still do. I still sometimes get the start of gastritis and I just go to clear and really bland food for a few days and things seem to get better. I did start to NEVER take my meds on an empty stomach, which is something I was not good about before. But I know you've been playing with taking your meds with food, and with out so I don't know if that would be an issue for you.
