Brief Answer:
take Sucral-O

Detailed Answer:
Dear Friend.
Welcome to HCM.
I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern.
Antral gastritis is mainly treated with proton pump inhibiotors.
In situations like yours where the person has even trouble in sleeping, we advise following:
1. To take a combination of Pantoprazole and Domperidone once a day.
2. To take Sucralfate and Oxetacaine suspension like Sucrafil-O two teaspoon full thrice a day.
3. To take soft , bland diet.
4. To walk after each meal.

Once your acute episode subsides, we would like to treat you for H.pylori infection.
Start on these medications, you would definitely get relieved.
If you have any further query, feel free to ask me.
Stay Healthy.

Thank you Doc.
Yours is a very detailed advice. I was taking Pepsiguard for last 2 months and just stopped taking it. So starting Sucralfate-O once again.
My another question is does my situation also cause fatigue, indecision and anxiety? How to overcome?
Thanking you once again,
Regards

Detail follow

Detailed Answer:
Dear Friend.
Anxiety can aggravate you gastric issues.
As such gastric issues don't cause anxiety.
In fact many doctors use anti depressants in there practise in patients with gastric issues.
If you have severe anxiety you can ask your doctor to add Amitryptilline to your prescription.
Fatigue is also related to stress in case you don't have anemia..
In case you have anemia, there might be a slight twist in diagnosis. Anemia can be caused due to Malabsorption syndromes like Celiac disease which in turn can result in fatigue
So its a wise idea to get a Hemogram done and if you find low hemoglobin there, revert back to me.
Would discuss further plan of action.
If you have any further query please ask me else you may close the discussion and rate it.
Stay Healthy.
