You have Erosive Gastritis such condition may result due to use of Aspirin or other analgesics, or use of alcohol or Tobacco. treatment advised is acid suppression which helps to heal the erosion along with motility of gut improves. This is safe to take for advised time. If acid is suppressed for long time it may predispose to stomach infections and long term use may cause enlargement of breast in males.(Gynaecomastia)But any cause is there then you must change your life style if there is to much stress. Take some kind of yoga and meditation. If it is recurrent then test for H.Pylori or consult Gastroenterologist for Triple Therapy. All the best.
