Hello

Are you having any stress and sleep deprivation over the period of illness?

Do you take alcohol and smoke?

Did you go for any investigations to reach diagnosis?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

Stress- my father is in late stages of Alzheimer's which has been stressful but I seem to be sleeping fine. I do drink beer on occasion but have never smoked. I am very physically active. I do see a naturopath and it was suggested that I had food poisoning-however that was 2 weeks ago and the problem is still accuring.

Thanks,

C

Ok and sorry for your father problems.

Respected customer based on the informations provided, you are suffering from

gastritis.

My advice for you is that just take an appointment with your GP and let him see you

physically. You may need to go for certain investigations like stool for H-pylori

antigen or blood anti H-pylori antibodies levels. You may need to start on capsule

omeprazole once daily and syp sucralfate You need to avoid spicy foods and alcohol.

Thanks
