After months of stomach pain I am finally free of gastritis which was caused by over-use of NSAIDS, as I had a endoscopy to check the stomach. Everything is all clear, and I got off my medication. I then I got off the tablets for 1 month and with no pain or discomfort when eating ect. However today my stomach is sore and I don't know why exactly, I have also been taking 4 krill oil tablets for about 2 weeks. I have a feeling the Krill Oil Tablets (is a stronger type of fish oil) is making my stomach uncomfortable as its a type of anti-inflammatory? Or is the odd bout of sore stomach normal when you been off the tablets for a month or if you have been on them for a very long time?

I'm gonna stop the Krill Oil and see happens. I hope I haven't hurt my stomach again :C

Thanks guys

Several things are possible: -

* the krill oil for some reason is triggering symptoms
* you have acid rebound from stopping a PPI
* your gastritis may not have completely resolved and your stomach requires a longer period of TLC

I think you're doing the right thing in stopping the supplement for a little bit. I take linseed oil as the fish oils all give me fishy burps and pain!

Hope you bounce back soon,

Lifelong stuff: Food allergies/intolerance, eczema, asthma
