Hi everyone, Like most PwME I've been through an array of symptoms since coming down with the illness six years ago. For the past 18 months I've had increasing discomfort in my stomach, and a recent gastroscopy and biopsies show I have erosive lymphocytic gastritis. I don't smoke, don't do alcohol or take NSAID's, and I'm not overweight. Additionally, I tested negative for Heliobacter pylori infection and I'm pretty sure I don't have Coeliac disease. I've been on a strong dose of PPI's the last six weeks, but my symptoms are worse than ever. Can anyone tell me whether there is any chance that the ME is an influencing factor in my having developed lymphocytic gastritis? And can anyone advise me what I can do to alleviate my gastritis symtpoms or, better still, make them go away entirely? My GP has simply said they don't know what is causing my gastritis and I may have to be on PPI's long term. This is not really a very helpful response, especially given the complete ineffectiveness (so far) of PPI's in resolving my problem. I live in the UK. Thanks in advance for any responses.
