I was diagnosed with chronic inactive gastritis last summer.  A mild case although the GI explained some with severe gastritis actually have minor symptoms and then people like me with a mild case really feel lousy a lot of the time.  I asked her can you GET RID of gastritis, and she shook her head and said no, it's not likely.  I find that hard to believe, though - gastritis means inflammation and it's caused by stress.  What I'm wondering is if the stress goes away, won't the gastritis also go away?  I don't really need to see the GI until it's colonoscopy time!

Hi and welcome. I don't suffer from gastritis but it would seem as though as you say, if you get rid of stress you can get rid of gastritis. It would be interesting to hear what some medical experts say about it.
