you have Erosive gastritis which should heal with the acid suppressing drugs which you are taking.Duration of stomach pain is 2 years? is there any other problem if no erosion may develop after use of analgesic like aspirin or ibuprofen or use of alcohol or irritant and spicy food ? but usually transient we should also look for H.Pylori infection if positive a Triple therapy may help. Acid peptic disorder is there relapse may occur but Taking regular diet,taking lot of water and keeping analgesic to minimum and avoiding alcohol and smoking one can be symptom free or cured ?
