So, after a year of not having to deal with my gastritis pain, it has struck again.  I had the flu last week which went into bronchitis, which I ended up on antibiotics for.  The Augmentin gave me a rash, so I took ONE Zithromax and went into the most horrible stabbing stomach pain an hour later.  It subsided, but has triggered my gastritis. If have gone and bought my yogurt and Ensure and I'm settling in for the pain of the next few days until the inflammation of my stomach lining subsides. 
If any of you have ever had it, you know how painful it can be.  Please say a little prayer for me tonight.  Thank you soooo much!
