Upper abdominal pain, lightheadedness, nausea, loss of appetite, ultrasound done, inflamed stomach, gastritis. Suggestion?

Hi, I am a 26 year old female. I am 5 2 and about 100 pounds. I have been in and out the hospital, and doctor s offices for almost 3 months now. I have constant upper abdominal pain , some light headedness, some nausea. I barely have any appetite , because whatever I eat usually causes burning. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night, nauseous and sweating. I had two CT scans, an ultrasound, an xray and an endoscopy . I was told I have a slightly inflamed stomach lining aka a mild case of gastritis . But, I was given no medication or instructions on how to get well again. Help!

Thanks for writing to us.
It seems that you are having a mild gastritis. You need to take proton pump inhibitors along with antacids like tums after consulting your physician. Dietary modifications and avoiding hot spicy food, caffeine and alcohol will also help.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
