Is the apprehension of heartburn, or indigestion, ‘killing’ your pleasure of eating? Watch out… it could be gastric trouble. Call it ‘heartburn,’ ‘dyspepsia’ or hyperacidity, more than 10 per cent of people who visit their doctor, for abdominal pain, have gastritis, or some other tummy distress, such as irritable bowel syndrome [IBS].
WHAT IS IT
Gastritis is not a solitary disease; it’s an umbrella term, encompassing different conditions, with inflammation of the stomach. Inflammation relates to the response of the body to any kind of irritation, or injury. For e.g., if you scratch your arm with your sharp object, the skin in that area turns red, swollen, warm and tender. This response is called inflammation. When the lining of the stomach is subject to any kind of irritation, or injury, it responds in like manner. Such a response could be acute, or short-term distress . However, in a large number of cases, it tends to run a chronic, or long-term, course with many ups and downs, represented by flagrant symptoms.
A host of factors trigger gastric trouble — right from medical conditions and certain medicines to lifestyle indiscretion. This may include infection, triggered by Helicobacter Pylori, a bacterial incursion, aside from certain parasites, certain drugs [pain-killers; aspirin], stress, excessive alcohol use, and certain foods and so on.
Symptoms include a burning type of pain in the upper abdomen, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, bloating, gas, and belching. There may be loss of weight, due to diminished appetite; when there is significant weight loss, you should seek a specialist’s advice promptly.
In acute cases, there may be excessive burning, nausea and vomiting. In chronic cases, there may be gradual loss of appetite, fullness after eating, dull pain, or no pain at all. You should report all such symptoms, which last for more than a week, or two, to your homeopathic doctor and treatment should be started without delay.
The first thing that will tell your doctor, that ‘It’s gastritis,’ is your medical history, lifestyle and certain medicines that you may be taking.
Standard investigations may be required to confirm the diagnosis — blood count, breath test, stool test, endoscopy etc.
