Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

There are several kind of gastritis -

Acute gastritis -- An abnormal inflammation of the stomach lining, or mucosa, is called gastritis. When it produces sudden and severe pain in the upper abdomen, that’s acute gastritis.

Chronic gastritis -- Inflammation of the mucosa that sticks around is called chronic gastritis, and if it is not treated, it can lead to much more serious conditions.

Erosive gastritis -- The inflammation of your stomach lining is not causing much pain, but it is wearing away the mucosa.

Gastritis could potentially cause heartburn which can affect the throat.

Black stool may also occur.

Essentially, the entire digestive system can be affected by gastritis. Weight loss, pain, nausea and vomiting can occur.

Are you under going treatment at the moment? What symptoms are you experiencing?
