Redcoat, I haven't been diagnosed with gastritis, but I have had dull stomach pain and nausea for a month now. I am afraid to eat anything because I don't want it to get worse. I have stomach pain, then my nausea kicks into high gear which causes more stomach pain. It's a vicious cycle. I'm trying to get into a gastro doc now. I wish I had more advice for you. This feels like a minute to minute battle to stay sane. Hang in there.
