Since childhood i had some episodes of gastritis (diagnosed when i was a teen). It got much better when I went to college and got older. Still, I had occassional issues over the years, especially during times of high stress- and there has been much of that. About 10 years ago I was diagnosed with GERT, they said it was moderate, but i avoided all dairy except some cheese and had few symptoms. Four years ago i had an unknown food allergy- (bananas and avocados it turned out)that made me so ill i had an endoscopy.
