So the gastritis can cause the back pain and tight band feeling? Is the Famotidine OK to take too? I just started back taking this. I've had this pain for about 3 months. How long can gastritis last? Thanks for your help.

I'd like a 2nd opinion on the tingling in upper stomach. It doesn't hurt, and only does it when I sit down. Just wondering if it could be just the gastritis? Thanks!
