gastritis? full of air pain tenderness
I was just in Vegas with my Girlfriends and I am afraid I have done some sort of damage to my stomach. I have tried reading up on Gastritis and I basically did everything wrong while I was there...drinking on an empty stomach, eating sporadically, and not eating incredibly healthy.

I have been trying to avoid coffee, alcohol, and dairy since i have been back....and i have tried to up my intake of fruits, veggies, ginger, and probiotics

i have high stomach acid anyways so i usually take omeprazole most days anyway....I'm not sure what I should be eating or not?

my stomach feels full of air constantly, and bloated.
I usually have very regular stools but I havent really been able to go in about a day and a half....

is this gastritis? have i done damage? and how do i make this better?

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms or comment specifically on the situation, though short term deviation form preferable dietary habits is unlikely to cause long term effects. I would suggest taking a glass of cold mild 2-3 times a day and one early morning, avoid taking spicy/ smoked/ hot food including beverages, avoid stress and continue with the prescribed medications. OTC antacids may be useful for pain relief. If the symptoms do not seem better in 1-2 weeks, you may seek a review with your treating gastroenterologist for a detailed evaluation and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
