Nausea caused by gastritis and or acid reflux? Or something more nefarious?

So to lay out my entire health history the past 6 months for transparency
- Late March took doxycycline for a previous bacterial infection
-Finished meds around April 8th
-Got a BAD stomach bug around April 10thish
-Afterwards went back to normal
-I used to work out every other day for months
-Suddenly stopped and began eating like a slob due to stress
-Got some bad acid reflux due to it and some anxiety
-After I wanna say May 20 I felt just fine went on eating like normal and even slowly started going to the gym again
-Around a week ago I ate some fried chicken that got both I and my mother sick
-Ever since then my stomach has seemed to not calm down
-There are days where it's fine and no worries
-And days where if I eat too big of a meal the nausea is troublesome
-I went to a clinic where a nurse practitioner diagnosed me with gastritis due to the symptoms I gave to him
-symptoms being nausea and some slight dull points on my ribs and abdominal area , not painful but you "know they are there" kinda feeling
-I took Omeprazole today and felt pretty ok for the most part (I know it says to take for 4 days to take complete effect)

So taking all this into consideration, is it really just gastritis/and or acid reflux? Or is there something more afoot? I don't feel ANY symptoms besides that and even though I have had nausea I have not once vomitted nor have I had any other symptoms.

Gastritis just means inflammation in the lining of the stomach.


You might have vomiting with it, but symptoms can vary.

"The signs and symptoms of gastritis include:

    Gnawing or burning ache or pain (indigestion) in your upper abdomen that may become either worse or better with eating
    A feeling of fullness in your upper abdomen after eating

Gastritis doesn't always cause signs and symptoms."

How are you feeling now? You're stomach has been through a lot, so maybe stick to some bland, non-friend, non-greasy foods for a bit. If things don't improve, continue to work with your doctor.
