I have not been officially diagnosed with Gastritis but I have a feeling this is what I have in addition to reflux. Burning feeling in the stomach, intense stomach pain, nausea and then from the reflux that painful lump in my throat and difficulty swallowing. My GI has had me on Prilosec for about 2 years now. But I was on a short course of low dose steroid for arthritis not too long ago and my primary wanted me to start on an acid reducer. I mentioned that I was already on Prilosec and she said good. So I am assuming that prednisone can definately mess with your stomach if no precaution is taken. Did your doctor put you on anything for it?
