Gastritis is a medical term for a group of conditions.
To be more precise, gastritis is an inflammation or irritation of the lining of the stomach. It is caused by the same bacteria (Helicobacter pylorior H. pylori) that causes stomach ulcer. A certain injury, certain medications, and drinking too much alcohol, also contribute to development of this condition.
Acute gastritis is manifested by a sudden attack and chronic arthritis symptoms occur over time. Gastritis is not very serious on its own, bu if left untreated it can cause serious health complications. Medications reduce the symptoms, but they don’t improve your overall health.
