I need more info to come to a better conclusion of your problem.

1. What are your exact symptoms of Gastritis? Do you feel acid coming up your food pipe?
2. Do you smoke? How often?
3. How long since the cough has been present? Do you get phlegm when you cough? Have you suffered from fever?
4. Are you on any regular medications like anti hypertensives?

Please get back to me with the answers, I am awaiting your reply

You are most certainly suffering from Acute gastritis and dyspepsia. I would advice you to seek medical attention from a Gastro entetologist for an endoscopy to rule out ulcers. For now you can take tab Esomeprazole instead of Omeprazole with domperidone. Esomperazole is more potent than Omeprazole. Please ask your doctor for a prescription

You can also try the following advice

1. Do not eat full stomach instead have smaller meals 4 to 5 times a day
2. Do not sleep immediately after meals
3. Eat regularly and on time every day
4. Avoid spicy, oily and caffeine

With regards to your cough, it might not be related to the gastritis also books do mention acid reflux causes cough but this is quite rare. It could a regular upper respiratory tract infection, if it occurs less than 5 times a year I would advice you not to put much emphasis on it.

I hope I have answered your query, if there are no further queries please accept my answer

I wish you good health
