symptoms just came back, worried about them, need help

Post by lxy172733823 » Tue Jan 02, 2018 10:22 pm

Hello everyone and expert,

Happy new year to all of you.
I have been fine without any symptoms for more than two months. The symptoms just came back the week before last week after i ate some spicy food and lots of orange, and sunflower seeds. My symptoms are: food reflux when i burp. for example, i always feel something hanging in my throat after meal, and can burp up some food sometimes. also, i had heartburn last week for three times, but i haven't had any heartburn this week. also, belching is more than normal, no stomach pain.
are these very typical symptoms of gastritis, especially for food reflux?

thank you

i have seen similar case where certain food triggered a HP-like gastric symptoms. especially when they only recently recovered from the gastric symptoms. People i know tried to avoid those food whenever they can. For your case, you can probably take some ranitidine to ease up the symptoms.

if your recent endoscopy did not show any abnormality, there is no need for another endoscope examination. just continue your rabeprazole for a few more days and see if the problem calms down.

the result of my recent endoscopy was chronic gastritis, and didn't show any abnormality except inflammatory gastric mucosa on antral area of stomach . i will keep taking it for few days, and will let you know the result.
