Hi Im scared my stomach will bleed

Customer Question

Hi I'm scared my stomach will bleed
Submitted: 2 years ago.
Category: Medical
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Hi--did you go on your holiday? And why are you still worried about stomach bleeding?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I am on holiday. I'm scared cause of the Gastritis will make my stomach bleed.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK Lisa but why exactly do you think this will cause your stomach to bleed?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Cause I have read it can cause this

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
You really shouldn't look up medical things on the internet Lisa--that can scare someone to death. Are you having any more symptoms now?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Still feel bloted and gas and burning feel.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
And your bowel movements are normal color?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes, will my stomach bleed I'm really scared

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK. There's no evidence then that you're bleeding and I don't know how to get you over this fear you have other than to say from all you've told me your stomach isn't going to bleed and you're going to be fine. Your anxiety is really making you overblowing this--not your fault--but if this were me, I wouldn't have any fear of stomach bleeding. Let's close this page with a rating and you can get back to me later on a new page if you need to.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

And will the rest of the symptoms go? Still get a few cramps. But can it cause bleeding

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
The other symptoms are not symptoms of bleeding--just a problem with the stomach virus you had. All this will clear up soon. We really need to close the page Lisa since I have to be off for a while

Not at all--I never lie to a patient.

Ok

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Take care Lisa
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Is bleeding common with Gastritis

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Not at all. But you really need to stop obsessing about this Lisa
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I don't know if it's the antibiotics but I'm now constipated? Is that normal?
