Stomach Ulcers & Gastritis

Stomach Pain Treatment in Beverly Hills

Gastritis is an inflammation of the stomach lining, while ulcers are open sores in the lining of the stomach – and sometimes in the duodenum (the first part of the small intestine). While they are separate issues, the causes and symptoms of gastritis and ulcers are similar.

Causes & Symptoms

Ulcers and gastritis are generally caused by over-consumption of alcohol, tobacco, or anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) – including aspirin and ibuprofen. They can also be caused by the presence of H. Pylori in the stomach.

Some symptoms include:

  • Dull or burning pain in the upper part of the belly
  • Loss of appetite
  • Heartburn or indigestion
  • Anemia
  • Frequent burping
  • Nausea with or without vomiting


Diagnosis of gastritis and ulcers includes a full health history review – including lifestyle – and an upper endoscopy. Make an appointment with our Beverly Hills gastroenterologist today. Contact our office at (310) 997-4044.
