Hello moka4, i am not a doctor but i do have some information on your problem that could be of some help.

My first thought after reading your post is it could be stress/anxiety related. I experienced it alot in high school with the same symptoms. I was diagnosed with gastritis as well.(not serious unless left untreated, in most cases) i was prescribed some meds that i cant remember the name of, but it helped alot.

Also, do u get frequent heartburn or stomach indigestion? It could be a sign of acid reflux ( GERD ).

As I said, i am not a doctor and cant really directly point out anything. I will suggest a quick trip to your doctor and chat with him about your symptoms, i'm betting it probably isn't anything serious and the doc will know how to proceed.

Best of luck.

ps: i was given Lexapro for my anxiety, and was eventually taken off it after a couple months. It helped alot.
