hi
No laboratory tests can pinpoint a diagnosis of gastritis.
Often, no tests are necessary.
If your health care provider orders tests, it is probably to rule out certain medical conditions.
If all other possibilities are ruled out, that leaves gastritis as the most likely cause of your symptoms.
A culture of duodenal tissue is done to check for bacteria that may lead to certain illnesses and conditions.
its better you consult a gastroenterologist.

Diagnosed with gastritis 5 months ago, had three benign biopsies during endoscopy, was told to stay on Prilosec 20mg. Stopped daily caffeine diet soft drinks (24-32 oz a day at that time) and changed diet. Have no stomach discomfort but still had mild heartburn when I tried to stop Prilosec for a couple weeks. Do I stay on Prilosec forever? Concerned about long-term effect.

Hello. I am traveling in Cambodia and 5 days ago started to have intense stomach pains. I vomited for the first 4 days non stop. No diarrhea. The stomach pains continued to get worse. Yesterday I went to a Clinic in Cambodia, there the dr did a ultrasound on my abdomen and then diagnosed me with gastritis. He prescribed me Nexium, Phagel susp., and Debridat. It was very difficult to communicate with him, he did not speak english very well. That was 24 hours ago. Since then the pain has gotten even worse. The stomach is incredibly twisted and painful and pain is spreading to my back. The medical services in Cambodia are known for not being that great and I m wondering if this issue is more serious than the dr. s diagnoses. Or if you agree to think that it is simply gastritis, is there anything you can recommend that I take to ease the pain? Please let me know what you think, Thanks,

Hello, I was feeling my stomach acting weird on Wednesday, and I remembered that on Monday morning, I had intercourse (safe sex with condom) but I got worried. So on Wednesday I ran to the drug store and purchased a Next Choice One Dose pill and I took it asap. However, I ended up getting gastritis later on that night. Is it possible that what I was feeling in my stomach was due to gastritis? Or did the pill cause Gastritis?
