Inflammation on lining membrane of the stomach that may be acute or chronic; acute gastritis may occur because of irritation of the stomach lining by alcohol or certain drugs (particularly non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs), poisons or food poisoning.
Symptoms may include upper abdominal bloating, pain, nausea and vomiting. Sometimes, there may be flecks of blood in the vomit. A viral infection of the stomach ‘epidemic acute gastritis or gastric flu’ causes similar symptoms as well as chills, fever and diarrhea. Pain could be at tip of the stomach, bitter taste when belching, when serious gastritis vomit or pass motion with dark blood. The excess of coldness energy is indicated by attacks of intense gastric pains during which patient feels to be dying, also by feeling of paleness and cold sweating. Stomach may be hyperacid erosive gastritis, intensifying on an empty stomach and early in the morning, eructation, and heartburn after eating sour food. Eliminating any possible cause of acute gastritis of this type, plus rest and a light diet usually leads to recovery.
Other types of gastritis include the followings:
• Acute stress gastritis is a much more serious condition that can develop rapidly when a person is severely stressed physically for example when suffering from extensive burns or injury, head injury or organ failure. At first multiple superficial ulcers of the stomach lining develop with nausea and indigestion that the patient may be too ill to complain of. Over a few days the ulcers may penetrate deeper layers of the stomach wall, and can lead to torrential bleeding and shock.
• Chronic erosive gastritis is characterised by persistent or recurring multiple ulcers, superficial or deeper, of the stomach lining, causing vague indigestion or gnawing upper abdominal pain similar to that of peptic ulcer disease. The condition may be the result of chronic use of aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, chronic alcoholism, Crohn’s disease or some viral infections or there may be no apparent cause. Diagnosis is by gastroscopy.
• Chronic non-erosive gastritis is generalized inflammation of the stomach lining, believed to be due to excessive growth of the organism. This condition generally causes vague indigestion and may increase susceptibility to peptic ulcer disease of the stomach. It is more common over the age.
