Early hours of this morning I woke up with upper stomach/chest pains that was radiating into my upper back, the pain was so bad I couldn’t sit or lay down. I literally thought my chest and insides were tearing apart.
Went to A&E and after an ECG and blood tests it turns out it’s not heart related but Instead something called gastritis! I never heard of this and I thought it was the same as gastroenteritis!
My question is what is the differences and what causes this gastritis? I have previously suffered with acid reflux and indigestion before but nothing ever like this! I’ve been put in Omeprazole 80mg daily.
