Re: Causes of Gastritis ?
Something else can cause reflux problems. I have been doing research on my own, because doctors just treat what's infront of them. So you have acid reflux.(me too) I recently found out that I have gallbladder issues. Gallbladder causes gas and the buildup of pressure pushes acid into your esophagus. I have also found that many people have gallbladder problems, but do not realize because symptoms are very mild, but still cause gas and acid reflux. I just thought I would mention another possibility for the acid reflux, because some of the doctors just treat symptoms and don't look for cause. At least that has been my experience.
Gastritus can be caused by, too much aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids,potassium supplements, iron tablets, stress, chronic vomiting.etc....... Hope you get well soon.....
