In the clinical picture of gastritis, it often happens that the disease begins without any symptoms.However, one way or another at some point the disease will begin to manifest itself.In the clinical picture of gastritis, it often happens that the disease begins without any symptoms.However, one way or another at some point the disease will begin to manifest itself.
If you feel negative changes in the body that are pushing the suspicion of this disease, you need, without delay, to see a doctor.Modern medicine has all the means to treat the disease and its symptoms.If a gastritis is suspected, the doctor should conduct all the necessary studies, tests and prescribe the necessary medication.
First signs of
The first symptom of gastritis in medicine is considered to be heartburn.Heartburn is a very unpleasant feeling that can occur in the chest, in the stomach, in the esophagus and even in the throat.It occurs often after eating.Heartburn with gastritis occurs, as after taking certain foods( spicy, p
eppery, sour, too salty, as well as fried foods).However, even with a correction of diet or diet, this symptom can make itself felt.
The second symptom of gastritis, which comes immediately after heartburn, is a frequent and uncomfortable eructation with an unpleasant odor that tortures a person with signs of disease both after eating and on an empty stomach.
A frequent sign of gastritis may be nausea, which appears in the person immediately or after a meal.Such a symptom occurs with any diet, and even in people following the
diet. The two above symptoms are already a strong argument for thinking, not the symptoms of gastritis do you experience?
Symptoms that indicate the progression of the disease
The next sign of severity is the pain in the upper abdomen.Pain with gastritis can come abruptly and last for a short time.In the case of progressive disease or its acute form, seizures are replaced by constant painful sensations, which are very painful for the patient.To muffle pain with a variety of analgesics - most often analgesics - a bad idea.For some time, the pain will go away, but with uncontrolled use of drugs, you can exacerbate the harm to your health.In addition, the clinical picture after taking medications can be "blurred", complaints will disappear.This will make it more difficult for the doctor to diagnose and choose the right treatment.
If you experience all of the above symptoms of gastritis, then, in theory, you should have been a patient of a medical institution for a long time.If you are still pulling with an address to a doctor, with a high probability, prepare for a long and difficult treatment, possible complications in the form of a stomach ulcer.In the most neglected cases, the consequence of the absence of gastritis treatment is stomach cancer.Yes, there are cases in medicine where gastritis led to oncology.
Another sign of gastritis is the large amount of saliva in the patient and complaints of a not passing dry mouth sensation.This is due to the loss of fluid in the body with a symptom such as frequent vomiting.
The course of the disease is noted by another sign - a violation of the stool.In a person suffering from gastritis, diarrhea can often be opened or, on the contrary, constipation may occur.
It is important to pay attention to the general condition of the body.The patient may experience weakness, body temperature may increase, and blood pressure may fall.The patient has a headache, a pulse is increasing, sweat is intensively allocated.
Symptoms in the acute erosive phase
It should be understood that the gastritis that has arisen will not pass by itself, at least in medicine the frequency of such cases is within the statistical error.
Symptoms of the disease occur due to inflammation and lesions of the gastric mucosa.The erosive phase occurs when the patient's symptoms are already observed for quite a long time, but he has not received qualified medical care so far.In this case, ulceration of the gastric mucosa begins.
The main symptoms of gastritis in acute erosive form are similar to the previous signs, but there are also serious changes that must make both the patient and the doctor really bother the alarm.
Gastric bleeding is added to traditional signs( heartburn, acute abdominal pain, nausea, belching, vomiting, temperature, sweating, rapid heartbeat, weakness, diarrhea or constipation).
To understand that gastritis has passed into the erosive phase, it is possible by the fact that along with vomit from the esophagus there is blood.It is a dark clot or veinlet.
In addition, the chair becomes dark, similar in color and structure to tar.The above symptoms indicate that the disease has come to a stage very dangerous for the patient's life.
The patient may, without knowing it, lose blood.Inflammatory processes develop at a higher rate.Immunity and general condition of the body are greatly weakened.A person suffers from dehydration, almost can not eat normally.As a consequence, the patient tends to lose weight sharply.He is weak, constantly sleepy, and very irritable.
Medicine provides a single measure for such symptoms of gastritis.The patient should be called an ambulance and immediately hospitalized.
Symptoms in the chronic phase
People suffering from chronic gastritis usually receive inadequate medical care in the treatment of the initial or acute stage of the disease, in the event that the main symptoms were ignored, the treatment was inadequate or incomplete.
Medicine is also known for a number of factors that cause the chronic stage and, as a consequence, its symptoms.
First of all, it is a harmful bacterium Helicobacter( Helicobacter), which can enter the body in a variety of ways.Doctors mention and chemical gastritis.This condition, with the attendant symptoms, causes a prolonged intake of certain drugs that adversely affect the gastric mucosa and cause its inflammation or lesion.In addition to drugs, chemical gastritis can be caused by other toxic substances.
Autoimmune gastritis and its symptoms occur for other reasons.In this case, the damaged human immunity causes the body itself to produce compounds that adversely affect the stomach.
Modern medicine currently has effective methods of diagnosis, allowing to determine the type of gastritis and its stage.
The first signs of chronic gastritis, which you need to pay attention to, are absence or loss of appetite.The patient begins to eat less, his gastronomic predilections change.This can continue until apathy for food.As a rule, this leads to weight loss, rapid fatigue, irritability.
Another symptom of chronic gastritis is discomfort in the mouth, associated with an unpleasant taste.Appears and burp with a heavy smell.After eating, the patient experiences a feeling of bursting and heaviness in the intestines.
After some, often quite a short time after eating, a person has complaints of abdominal pain.As a rule, they are stupid and aching, and cause enough torment.
Symptoms of chronic gastritis are also manifested by rumbling in the abdomen, swelling of the intestine, flatulence.The patient often vomits after eating.Changing chairs - there are diarrhea or constipation.

Symptoms of chronic gastritis can worsen at certain times of the year, usually in the fall and spring.To the same effect can lead to the use of certain medicinal medicines.It is worth refraining from smoking and alcohol, which also lead to an exacerbation of symptoms.
As already mentioned, chronic gastritis occurs with periodic exacerbations and remissions.During the remission, the symptoms of the disease virtually disappear, however, again appear during the period of exacerbation of the disease.Aggravation can be seasonal in nature( for example, in spring and autumn), and can also be provoked by a violation of diet, smoking, alcohol, and the use of certain medicines.
