Hiya Jill, are you on any stomach protection meds?
i take nexium and it helps a lot to combat the RA meds, my stomach is better than its ever been.
I feel for you, hope you get some relief soon.
big hugs. max. xx

Yes Jill the PPI's should be protecting the stomach [ but are you still on them since the GB op ?]if I didn't take them I would have acid reflux all the time. Def tell the surgeoun who did the op - you don't want to be suffering with this after what you have been through !!

Maz hi there, yes that is the name of the med, or eoprmazole(cant spell that lol) but over the years I never ever had stomach protection, in jan12th had an accident, twat crashed into me causing me whiplash in ther thick ice, i was parked to let him go, and he drove str8 at me, anyway, put in a claim, due to the fact I was sick, dizzy and stumbling, checked and rechecked by my gp, he said whiplash, snyway as i put in for a claim against the man, i had to have a private medical, imentioned tht day after the crash, i cld not eat, due to nausea, dizzyness etc, and he agreed that Gastritid can be brough on by shock, stress etc, so hes added that to the claim, plus i was in hosp due to the severe pain, had endoscopy, revealed that i had Gastritis, and scan that revealed I had 6 gall stones, was re admitted again, and they had a cancellation and i had Gall Bladdder removed 9 days ago....now i realise that i was having gtritis pain, and irritated gb.....just thort it wld all go away, but it hasnt, and that hs upset me bad! I have never, b4 the crash, hasd tummy troubles ever! always thort my tum was strong, but when Not eating for weeks(just picked) think tht was when the stomach couldnt cope, so it was a deirect result of the crash and being dizzy and nauseas, hope that makes sense.....on top of that, got the usual arthritic pain etc, and waiting for a spine op, which now i cant even comtemplate....one thing after another.....sometimes im so ravenous, starving becos ive barely eaten, but know I cant eat a normal way, becvos it kicks off the rotten tum pain!....know it will settle sometime, but so far, ive suffered almost daily since early feb! anyway tc Jill xx

Jill you really need to ask your gp for a better stomach med, have you kept a note of certain foods that make it worse? with me tomatoes are the trigger, im fine if they are cooked but raw ones give my stomach hell.


My appetite is poor anyway, dont know what causes it but i have days when i just cant face food and get by with toast and biscuits.
Get to your gp asap Jill, you can't suffer any more.
big hugs, maz.

Hi Maz, thanks for your reply, appreciate that.....have they told u that u have Gastritis? to be honest Maz, at the mo, just drinking eater sets the pain off, middle of ribs, upper abdomen....I was starving this morn, usually eat about 12, but today so hungry, so had toast and honey, kicked it off, its lurking there all the time, cant even drink coffee any more, I actually thought it was due to my Gall Bladder(had taht removed 2weeks thurs...if I dont eat, im fine......but im human and need to eat lololol, I truly am shocked that after the GB removal, all wls be fine, now I know it was the Gastritis all along, seen GP so many times, thats y he changed me to nexium?plus very very strong Gaviscon, extrea strong, plus Maz I take Zomorph(opiats for good old artha) and yet the pain comes thru sharp!.......sorry to bore everyone with this, but I realise now that everyone that has an autoimmune prob can get it......im just annoyed taht ive never had tum protection b4 now.....anyway Maz thanks for ya help....how long have u had your prob?? xx

Jill no I don't think it's Gastritis it's just that if I run out of my PPI's I don't half know it !! Get acid at the back of my throat and GB pain. I've been right tired lately Jill don't know if it's the RA/Meds/Anaemia. Sorry to hear you arn't feeling as well as you hoped :0(

Hi Jill, my gp said i had acid reflux, but i too get upper abdominal pain, and even if i drink water i belch for britain,lol,its settled at the mo, but i dread getting an attack, just cant eat or drink much when its bad.
I was on anti inflams for 18 years before i was offered stomach protection and ive suffered the stomach probs around 8 years now.

I do hope your gp can give you something that will work better.
big hugs, maz.

Hi Kazzie, im new to the Gastritis lark, had it since around feb, hd Endoscopy revealed stomach lining inflamed-Gastritis! never heard of it b4 then, had GB out 2weeks this thurs, and felt better for a few days, as i wasnt eaten etc, began to eat'normal' and prob began, I also wasnt given any tum protectors for yearssssss!!, I dont get heartburn or even acid reflux, just if I drink coffee, or even water, even Gaviscon kicks the abdomonal pain off!! im on 40mg of nexium, think all the r.a. meds have done my tum in! sorry cant help u too much Kazzie, they prob do mask the pain, just like the Opiates I take, and mb others take, infact all painkillers tell the brain that there is no pain, so they deffo mask the pain im guessing.......Kazie hope ya not too bad at the mo tc Jill x
