Customer Question

erosive gastropathy..........scope
PPi's ..............a little better???
main problem ...............chest pain......had heart workup ......all good.
pain above solarplexes and inch or two.
1. Does erosive gastropathy heal?

Hi

Yes erosive gastritis can heal in time with PPI's

If you heart has been thoroughly checked out I'd get an MRI of your cervical and thoracic spine since a disk problem there could be causing your pain.

Let me know if you need any more information please

Why such a short answer with no information on why you would have a MRI done? ( If you heart has been thoroughly checked out I'd get an MRI of your cervical and thoracic spine since a disk problem there could be causing your pain ). What about the erosive gastropathy? Can you please elaborate? Thanks

You asked if erosive gastritis can heal in time and I answered that part of your question.

The chest pain may not be from that which is why I mentioned the spine MRI's--that could be from nerve root compression from disks

But I'll be glad to continue the conversation if you still need more information
