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.
