Gastritis is an inflammation of the mucosa covering the stomach wall. As a result, the PH balance in the stomach is disrupted and stomach acidity increases. Gastritis is divided into two type: Acute and Chronic. Gastritis that occurs suddenly is called acute, and gastritis that lasts for a long time is called chronic. Acute gastritis usually manifests itself with loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, heartburn, constant burping, pain in the stomach and back, bloody vomiting or blood in the stool. In case of chronic gastritis, although there are no full symptoms, mild symptoms such as bloating and indigestion may be observed in the stomach.
