Respected user , Hi

Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.com
I have evaluated your query thoroughly .

* The reason of persistent symptoms are due to underlying cause is not
simple gastritis there is something else which needs to be evaluated .

* Possibilities as - hiatus hernia - duodenal ulcer - biliary system
obstruction - liver problems - diaphragm conditions - systemic
disturbances of certain aspects - others .

* Ask your doctor for its evaluation of the cause via ultrasound with or
without endoscopy to confirm the diagnosis and management plan
accordingly .

Hope this clears your doubts .
Thanks .
