I'm a 41 year old female who has recently had a suspected case of acute gastritis. I have had an ecg, liver and kidney function blood tests and a full blood count all of which have come back absolutely positive. Normally this would be excellent news but I have been a long term (roughly 10 years with about 11/2 years off due to having a child) wine drinker - approximately a bottle a night.
I'm currently on one a day PPI (two weeks in) and feel ok. I have only the odd twinge/burning feeling.
My anxiety levels have hit the roof at the moment (mainly because I'm worried about the possible damage and the fact that this has happened in the middle of a pandemic) leading me to have spoken to several doctors regarding possible organ damage. Their response is that they are not concerned because of my blood results. I don't suffer from excruciating pains nor have I at any time had a fever as I have read that many people have suffered.
My question is that, although I'm probably fine and don't have anything to worry about and that it's only 2 weeks since I had the main attack, has anyone else had similar experiences and what was the outcome? Has anyone had experience of going on to suffer further on down the line?
Sorry for the long post!
(P.S - I haven't touched alcohol since)
