How many have gastritis as well?
All of my issues really came to me recently, around October 2008. But, I do recall however that I used to get feelings of gastritis up to 2-3 months before that. I would only get it in the mornings, and as soon as I ate, the feelings would be gone.

Do most of you who have had the endoscopy done also get told that you have gastritis (whether mild or severe)? I also remember I was stressed about 1-2 months before the GERD acid really hit me.

Do you take both everyday? And in what dosages? What other PPIs did you try before that?

How many times a day do you find yourself burping?

I have the same thing. Mild gastritis after scope. Currently on PPIs and Carafate. I dunno if it's helping yet. Only thing I think caused it was maybe spicy food (which I love) and stress.

You need a course of PPIs for 4-8 weeks. Omeprazole is a good one to start off with.

I was also still in pain whilst taking PPIs but then I changed my diet and the pain got less and less until it eventually stopped. I only ate potatoes, bread, low fat dairy products, plain pasta and certain vegetables. I drank actimel and water only and ate small portions instead of a whole meal. I found eating more than a fist sized portion of food every few hours further irritated my gastritis and i'd have a bad flare up and be up all night in pain. Also don't eat for atleast 3 hours before going to sleep. I found that sticking to those rules allowed my stomach to settle and let the PPIs start working.
