Hi--Going through another attack of gastritis (plus some worsening IBS symptoms) for the last few months. Last time I had a gastritis incident I had barely an appetite and lost a few pounds. As soon as I felt better, I gained them back. This is tricky situation since I am very overweight to begin with. This latest episode of weight loss has me concerned, because it seemed to happen in the last two weeks. About eight pounds! It's true I've hardly been eating and I was perhaps bloated from PMS when I weighted myself two weeks ago, but that seems awfully fast. Has anyone else had this happen to them? I am planning a colonoscopy and possibly endoscopy soon.
