Hi all - i hope you are all having a nice holiday
my gi doc 1 month ago today diagnosed me as having "mild" gastritis -- i dont know if the word mild is his idea of a joke -- he bascially poo poo my ailment as not worthy of his total concern and sent me off with a prescription of solutab prevacids
and said that in a few days "you will back to your old self"
well its been more than a few days -- im a few lbs lighter too - ive basically become a slave to my disease -- im in constant burning pain in my chest and throat area (since October!) and acids reducers are doing little -- and i cant swallow solids anymore.. i feel like food is getting caught up.. and my throat feels tight too!
ive been on pear and banana baby foods and broth soups only -- god forbid if i should try to chew on a lean piece of chicken.
my question is cause i cant sem to find the exact answer online - but does gastritis have symptoms as crazy as i have ? out of nowhere im a heartburn acid reflux sufferer who cant swallow food???
is there anyone on this board who knows a little about this insane affliction?
