I recently ate some stuffing. Not the Paxo stuff, but real sausage meat stuffing, all fat and spices. I was SOOO poorly that night, pain and reflux and horrible belching, and for 2 weeks afterward I have had awful gastritis, mostly after eating. It hurt so much and took ages to go off! Has anyone else experienced a long lasting effect from something they ate?

Sure have. Trigger foods can wreak havoc on your stomach.

Take care,

Sausage! Oooh! Big reflux trigger for me. Pork is naturally full of sulfites, and then there's the spices. Pepper, garlic, onion ...all big triggers. Fat can be a whole separate category of trigger.

Yes, getting a reflux going can last a long time when you realy do it up wrong. I don't know about 2 weeks, but a day is within my experience.

Make sure you get everything you ate in your food journal, along with your reactions. There's a good chance you ate more food the same meal or at least the same day that added to the reaction. Did you eat leftovers? Everything you ate for that 2 weeks is suspect.

I echo Alcie and Bill. I've had trigger foods make me feel sensitive for a week after eating them. And hot dogs used to give me big time reflux.

Hot dogs NEVER bothered me before I got GERD. Totally new thing. So if your tummy is sensitive, it's possible to develop totally new triggers/symptoms.
