Hi all. I have been seeing a Gastroenteroligist for over a month now. They've done a lot of test on me including an endoscopy, colonoscopy, catscan of both head and abdominal, blood tests, stool samples, urine tests-- all came back negative. My symptoms are lack of appetite, feeling of fullness quickly and general nausea. These symptoms are especially bad in the monrings but get better throughout the day. My last visit i noticed when my doctor brought up my results that I have mild gastritis but he didn't think of it as much of a concern. He then went on to say that I may need motility studies done. Should I be concerned about the gastritis? And how to treat it? Thanks.

My mom has it, and i think i have it as well, not sure. I went to GI and he sent me to do blood work, don't know what he's looking for.
Sometimes i do have feeling of fullness, burping a lot, and mild nausea, but it comes and goes. Lately its all been good. I'll go do my blood test on Monday, and see my GI on 27th. Will see what he'll discover.
I try to eat more healthier, i avoid any fried foods, red meat, etc, this seems to help somewhat. From what i understand, it's good to fast once in a while and don't overload your stomach with unhealthy foods.

Sorry, couldn't help you much here, but i'm very sympathetic to your problem.

Take care!
