I drink a lot of water, forgot to mention that. Usually 6 full glasses a day. Is it possible to have chronic constipation? I'm a pescitarian, so I don't eat red meat, just seafood, pastas, veggies and fruit. I'm a pretty healthy eater so I have a hard time thinking that I could be constipated.
Also, it's been going on for months... I've been trying to narrow what would be causing it. Any ideas of what would cause it if I've been drinking plenty of water?
If I rest my hand on the area that I feel it is, I would say it would be right over my belly button, so right on my belly.
Is gastritis permanent or temporary and treated otc?
OK, thanks for all of your advice.
Thanks so much.
Hello doctor, I just wanted to share some information that I've come across. It seems that many people have an issue with long-term usage of Zyrtec and gastritis. I've read article after article about it. Thank you for your suggestion that this could be my issue. I'm going to start by discontinuing Zyrtec and taking Prilosec and see if that helps the problem. If it does not, I will see a local doctor. Thank you again...
Thanks doctor. I will try this route and see what happens. I never would have thought about gastritis, so I thank you for that diagnosis. I've had pretty regular BMs, so I was ruling out constipation in my mind. Thanks and have a great day
