View Full Version : new to the board: gastritis and pleurisy

09-22-2013, 04:34 AM
Hello everyone. I am new and apologize if this has already been asked. I have just been diagnosed with gastritis (endoscopy) and also have symptoms of pleurisy. Wondering if there is a connection between the two and if anyone had experienced the same thing. I am on my 4th dose of prilosec. Thank you.

Welcome to Health-Boards!!...
I've had both of these conditions but at different times.
As far as I know I cant see a connection. If you were on Antibiotics for the Pleuresy there could be a connection as Antibiotics can upset the digestive system.
Some people find PPIs helpful, I never did.
Try Aloe Vera Juice, taken daily for at least four weeks can really help,
