I don't know what to do

I think I have gastritis. I have been having heartburn for about two months now. I have terrible bloating, no real appitite, nausuas, burning in my chest and stomach, and my stomach feels tender to the touch. I was on prevacid for about a month and it seemed to help, but I ran out of prevacid, and I dont have anymore money to see the doctor or get more meds. my burning and tenderness has come back, and I dont know what else to do. Is it possible this can go away on its own??

Re: I don't know what to do

The symptoms you mention can be caused by many disorders that need medical attention that can for proper diagnosis and treatment.
I don't think they will just go away??

If Prevacid helped then a similar and cheaper over the counter proton pump inhibitor may also help -- Prilosec may help and you can buy a 42 day supply for $26.

I wish you well---Harry
