Gastritis is simply defined as inflammation of the stomach lining by damage for a variety of reasons. The bacteria that cause stomach ulcers if left untreated leads to this disease. While gastritis, called acute gastritis, appears suddenly, chronic gastritis, which is a persistent inflammation, may also occur due to delaying the treatment of previous diseases in the stomach.
What are the Symptoms of Gastritis?
Gastritis caused by a bacterial infection initially does not show any symptoms in most people. However, if the disease progresses;
- Discomfort and burning sensation in the stomach,
- Persistent pain felt between the navel and lower ribs,
- Nausea that may cause vomiting from time to time,
- Loss of appetite due to stomach discomfort,
- Constant belching, bloating and feeling of satiety,
- Bloody vomiting due to excessive erosion of the stomach lining as the disease progresses,
- Again, due to the progress of the disease, black stools are among the common symptoms.
If you have these symptoms, definitely consult a specialist.
