Hi

Pls read the above msg
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 4 days ago.

I am sorry to hear this. Amtrak gastritis is just referring to the location within the stomach. Therefore gastritis alone can be responsible for your discomfort, for which a PPI is the management. It is also worth getting an ultrasound if you haven’t already to also exclude gallstones.

Not Amtrak

Normally with a PPI you would expect the symptoms to reduce after a few months. This would be in addition to dietary changes to avoid irritating your stomach.

What PPI and what dose are you currently taking?
