Gastritis is inflammation of the gastric mucosal protective layer due to damage of gastric mucosa due excess gastric acid. It may be spicy food or mental stress. The condition can heal on itself but sometimes it may complicate into bleeding or perforation. It may even be precursor of stomach cancer.
Sudden or acute gastritis is a stomach mucosal inflammation condition that develops all of a sudden resulting into extreme pain in the stomach area, vomiting, and nausea. Long time or chronic gastritis may result into belching or bloating after preparing food, gas, and non-specified stomach pain. Helicobacter pylori bacterial infection is the most common culprit although the condition may be triggered by too much nicotine, medications, and alcohol use.
One of the most important tools to diagnose gastritis is by a gastroscopic examination. This examination entails the taking of tissue samples to make sure that an ulcer gastric cancer can be ruled out.
Reduced or avoiding spicy and heavy foods as well as coffee, cigarettes, and alcohol may relive acute gastritis. Antacids (acid blockers) and drugs that lower acid production in the stomach (proton pump inhibitors) can be used to treat gastritis. Treatment of gastritis by Dr Pardeshi Acupuncture Pain Therapy in Nashik is very effective.
