18 months ago, I suffered an extremely distressing period of my life..which triggered a bout of chronic gastritis, which I cannot recover from. I suffer from typical gastritis-symptoms including stomach burning and irritation, nausea, loss of appetite, acid reflux, fullness, stomach pain and discomfort nearly daily. I've made the standard dietary changes - gluten-free, dairy-free, no nightshades or other acidic foods/potential irritants and tried many supplement protocols to no avail - l-glutamine, zinc carnosine, mastic gum and so on.. I'm currently doing the 12 week course of Symprove (probiotic) and following standard gastritis dietary advice. The trauma which triggered my gastric issues have long passed and I'm in a reasonably good state mentally - but it's as if my body does not realise that the trauma has passed. I sleep well, rest and avoid stress. Has anybody had a similar experience with trauma and digestive issues? It's having a huge impact on my quality of life and ability to nourish myself. I've just found myself in the financial position to fund a comprehensive stool test, so I'll be doing this next to rule out other possible issues. Thanks for sharing any advice/suggestions.
