Gastritis

Hemorrhagic Gastritis

Hemorrhagic gastritis is a condition where there are pinpoint hemorrhages on the surface lining of the stomach. Each one of these tiny points can ooze small amounts of blood. Over time this can be a considerable amount and cause anemia or a low red cell count. Aspirin, arthritis medications such as Advil, Motrin and Naprosyn, and excessive alcohol can all cause this condition. The usual symptoms are burning in the stomach area, nausea and even vomiting of a coffee ground or red blood material.
