Acute gastritis is a condition that causes a variety of pain symptoms in its sufferers. It is often a chronic condition, and the pain and discomfort can severely affect the patient’s quality of life. The condition causes inflammation that can spread throughout the stomach and cause even more severe pain. Gastritis sufferers usually exhibit pain in the gastric area initially, and then may experience nausea, vomiting, and abdominal gas.
Patients with gastritis may experience some relief from the pain by using medical marijuana. Marijuana may also control the nausea and vomiting associated with the condition.
