I am new to this group.
I just finished a round of Rifaxamin/antibiotic and now have gastritis that I not had to deal with in years. I have also noticed a worsening of my constipation. I will be using some Miralax to get things "moving along". The constipation seems to make everything worse.
They also think I may have eosinophilic esophagitis that worsens my gerd.
I also have horrid pain after I eat that is not gastritis related..it is just below the center of my sternum and hurts clear through to my back..I was told it was esophageal spasms,but I do question that diagnosis. I have severe GERD and allergies to food and various types of pollen.
I get heartburn following every meal! I eat DGL with some relief.
