I started gastroparesis a year go. I didn't start getting burning symptoms until around June. How does this cause gastritis? I'm on a ppi and reglan and my gastritis will come back on occasion. Ice had gastritis for almost a year! How long does it take to heal? I had an endoscope done in August and it showed mild gastritis. Do you think it can be svere now or chronic? Will I need to be back on carafate? I can't really take carafate the right way because my stomach doesn't empty normally and I only get hungry twice a day after 7 hours of eating a small low fat meal. Is the bloating causeing it too? I stay away from acid foods. And spicy foods. I'm on a pretty bland diet. Except for frozen yogurt and ensure.
