Unhappy Gastritis

Does gastritis ever go away? My endoscopy revealed i had this and i am wondering if you have it for life. My GI doctor never mentioned this but a friend's GI doctor told him this. Does taking a PPI help it get better or is it just a band aid? I know that tomato based sauces make it flare up for days afterward. Is that normal? Should i be feeling constant pain in my left abdomen for days after eating pasta sauce or pizza with red sauce? Will i ever be able to eat those foods again without these consequences? I'll be fine for days, but then i will eat something that may not even be a big trigger and i will be in pain constantly in that left side. It is painful to move that area and talk and i get shortness of breath. My heart feels panicky too. Is this a normal symptom of gastritis? It beats so fast in the night after tomato sauce meals it is like it is anxious and tingly.

Re: Gastritis

Usually, gastritis does improve. Mine hasn't, but I'm currently exploring Why Not.

The PPI sometimes helps. If you take it for 1-2 months, that sometimes allows a damaged stomach to heal. After taking it, you should taper the dosage in some fashion, such as one day on, one day off.
