Hello there. I can understand your concern. Who has given you pain killer for acidity, it would just worsen your condition. You also need to make a few dietary changes. 1. Have a high protein, high fiber diet. 2. In those 5 meals, let 2 meals contain lots of fruits and vegetables. 4.Have lots of water.5. avoid oily and spicy foods altogether and avoid green chillies. 6. Do not sleep immediately after dinner. Let there be atleast 2 hours of gap. Best regards. Dr. Anil Kumar Jain

Avoid stress,consider calming activities, such as meditation, yoga etc...sleep with head raised position and have dinner at least 2 hours before sleep..take over pantaprazole 40 mg twice daily before food with above for 15 days....consult physician if symptoms persists

Hello,, 1.Refined Food – Refined food like white bread, refined sugar is difficult to digest and leads to increased irritation on the stomach lining. Thus, food like pastries, burgers etc should be avoided. 2.Fat – Gastritis is basically the inflammation of the stomach lining, which is enhanced due to fatty acids. Sources of fatty acids are fried chicken, fried onions, fried eggs etc. Boiled eggs are safe but fried eggs are a great source of fatty acids, which increases the stomach lining inflammation. 3.Spicy Food – Spicy food needless to say increases inflammation in the stomach. Spicy food may include direct intake of chillies, intake of high amount of spice everyday, mustard etc. Here is what to eat - eat fresh fruits and vegetables which has high fibre helps both gastritis and digestion problem. There is no restrictions to drinking water,, drink as much as water. Avoid lemon juice during acute attack or gastritis, Eating curd rice soothens gastritis. Avoid smoking and drinking if any. Eating timely food as major benefits. If antigastrits tablets have prescribed for you by your doctor please continue as adviced for one or two weeks.
