Gastritis is really just a fancy way of saying you have a stomach ache. It can be caused by anything from a stomach bug to eating something that doesn't agree with you to using medication that upsets your stomach lining. It can last for a while but usually it will go away on its own, but if it doesn't then you should be able to track down the source with your doctor's help, and once you do that and eliminate the source it should go away.

I had gastritis as a kid.  Probably anxiety-caused in me, probably anxiety-caused in you, or helped by it at least.  It just means your stomach is inflamed a bit.  Antacids were all I was given.

I had an EGD in April 2013 and the diagnosis was mild gastritis. The GI physician told me that
gastritis can be caused by what you eat, drink, medicine you take, if you have a hiatal hernia,
H. Pylori bacteria, etc. Gastritis can also be very painful. Reflux medicine may help and eating
smaller meals and not eating before you go to bed may also help. Elevating your head while sleeping may
also help you.
