Symptoms of gastritis

Many people with gastritis caused by a bacterial infection don't have any symptoms. In other cases, gastritis can cause:

  • Indigestion
  • gnawing or burningstomach pain
  • nausea and vomiting
  • feeling full after eating

If the stomach lining has been worn away (erosive gastritis) and exposed to stomach acid, symptoms may include pain, bleeding or a stomach ulcer .

The symptoms of gastritis may come on suddenly and severely (acute gastritis) or last a long time (chronic gastritis).
