This first and second symptoms of a Gastritis and Duodenitis.
Before the first symptom, I love to eat spicy food very often, sour food, red meat (medium or well cooked), Vegetable salads, White cheese, yellow Cheese (Mozzarella) buttered salted foods not to mention the early morning Coffee Cappuccino on an empty stomach after a glass of water.
Symptoms: A severe pain on upper central abdomen to the lower part Chest bone, a noticeable bulging abdomen, Bloated, un-reasonable Constipation and Diarrhea, heavy breathing, couldn’t lie down, it only get better if my upper body was on slightly slanted position. In other words Stomach discomfort.
I only felt relieved after a help of Med Solution’s medical advise.
By taking Omeprazole 1 x 20 mg per day every morning on an empty stomach 1 hour before breakfast. It took 14 days of medication of Omeprazole tablet.
The Second symptoms hit back 2 days later after 14 days medication. That time it was more painful and it took 2 consecutive evening until morning from approximately 2100Hrs to 0400 Hrs.
What did i ate? As far as I can remember, I ate snack in the morning 1 Mamon Bread( made up of butter, milk and wheat) A lunch of Pork Sour soup, Pork Chopped with soy sauce full of typical filipino salsa and hot green Chili pepper. At dinner, a butter cooked Crab and one bite of butter cookies at 2000hrs.
It all started at 2100 Hrs, At first, I thought it was just a mild cold, It started with slight pain in my central abdomen. I drank a cup of green tea with honey hoping for temporary relief. The symptoms persisted terribly! When I could no longer hold the pain, I called for emergency shore medical check up at Caldera, Chile. It was winter and chilly. It was very fortunate that our ship’s agent representative was with me. He was very helpful indeed. He handled everything without any signs of hesitation. Agental Maritime Services Mr Esteban Leon Guerrero did a great help during that time. I could thank him more than once.
The doctor diagnosed me with Gastritis and Duodenitis.
As an immediate medication, I was transfused with gas suppressing medicine and pain reliever, They injected it in my vein through dextrose. As a continuous medication, I was prescribed with:
Famotidine 1 x 20 mg every 12 hours for 14 days.
Domperidona 1 x 10mg very 8 hours for 3 days
Flapex-E 1 capsule every 8 hours for 3 days
Viadil – oral drops in case pain persist.

To Summarize, Gastritis and Duodenitis ruined my previous food intake. I forcefully followed above diet plan to completely get rid of the symptoms. This would make you feel better and relieved if you have the same symptom of Gastritis. I suggest more warm water intake during meals, A lot of Chamomile (1 drank more than 3 mugs a day) tea.
Disclaimer: Above diet plan worked with me. As we all know, different persons have their own tolerant in food intake. If you feel in doubt about what you should eat and shouldn’t eat? Better consult a physician.
