    Gastritis / need endoscopy

    1.) Have you ever had gastritis show up on an endoscopy? I did 10 years ago, along with a few small non-bleeding ulcers. I tested negative for h. Pylori. so my treatment was just to take a PPI for a couple months. No idea what caused the gastritis.

    2.) Over the past year, Iíve been getting chronic heartburn and taking Pepcid twice a day. I also have this irritated feeling in my stomach area under my left breast. What if Iíve been dealing with chronic gastritis all these years and now I have stomach cancer? Iím feeling soooo much guilt for not getting any repeat endoscopies. I plan to schedule one soon but am terrified itís past the point of no return. If Iíve had gastritis all these years, maybe it is cancer now and thatís why Iím getting heartburn. I keep crying thinking Iím going to leave my young kids behind.

    I know I need to ďbite the bulletĒ and get scoped, but man am I scared. :(

    I had a similar experience to you and also have symptoms again. I think mine is anxiety related to be honest.

    Thank you for your reply. Did your endoscopy also show gastritis?

    What about h pylori? My biopsy was negative for that so I just took a course of PPIs.
