Gastritis is a digestive condition which occurs when the lining of the stomach becomes inflamed after it has been damaged. It s a common condition which has a wide range of causes.

I had a friend who struggled with this. Ended up needing surgery to fix the problem. One sign no one seems to talk about is having acid burps and teeth erosion. It is actually a common sign you have something like this. Same with acid reflux.
