Hi everyone I was just diagnosed with gastritis yesterday. I am so scared is it a serious illness? My doctor didn't prescribe me anti-biotics just acid inhibitors. I had major surgery in October I had an ectopic pregnancy and nearly died it took me about a month and a half to heal I just feel like my body's breaking down!! I never been sick prior to the surgery maybe a sorethroat every 5 yrs. or something. Has anyone ever experienced anything similar. I always think I am at death door now and I am 25! Thanks for letting me share .
