gastritis in pregnancyHi,
I am a 34-year-old from Slovenia, 3 months pregnant. I was diagnosed with gastritis and hyperacidity 3 years ago and I have been taking Nexium every spring and autumn. I am not allowed to take any medication because of the pregnancy and I feel very ill. I wake up several times during the night in pain, which is relieved by eating, but only for approx. an hour. It is similar during tha day, I have to eat all the time. The morning sickness makes everything much worse. I am also gluten and lactose intolerat and I have problems with burping and severe bloating.
I have been taking Nux Vomica for 2 weeks, but it does not help. I also drink 1 L of cabbage juice throughout the day (1 glass every 2 hours, also during the night), which helps a little, maybe for half an hour.
I would be grateful for any suggestions, since I am getting desperate. Thanks in advance,

I'm sorry to hear you are feeling so ill. Congrats with your pregnacy. I can not help with homeopathic remedy but I could suggest some basic food remedies that work for me.
I eat apples, they are soluble fibre, this means your stomach ahs something to work on for more time. Eat one or some slices before you go to sleep. Almonds work the same way.
Which cabbage do you use to juice, I have tried juicing cabbage with an electric juice with not much luck. I nibble on cabbage a few times a day. It is apparently very good in healing ulcers.
Have you tried eating papaya fresh or dried. It has digestive enzymes in it that would help your food digest quicker.
Make sure you are drinking enough water as this is important for baby too.
Good luck, I truly hope all will be well for you. I hope a kind homeopathic will suggest a rememdy for you soon.

Here are the details:
thirst as before (I drink mostly water, several glasses a day), but I do not have much appetite (I eat mostly because of the pain)
urination normal, stools sometimes regular, sometimes diarea or constipation (do not go to the toilet for 3 days)
no vomiting since I take nux vomica (I did vomit in the morning before), but nausea is still present, mostly in the morning, evening and the night
I do have stomach pains similar to menstrual pain since the beginning of the pregnancy, but only mild pain
no other pregnancy complaints
no feminine issues (other than menstrual pain on the first day, but not very strong)
as for mind simptoms, I have problems with depression (I have taken antidepressants 4 times during the last 10 years) and I do feel depressed at the moment
During the last days, I sometimes also have a feeling of fullness in the stomach, even though I always eat only very small meals.
Thank you very much in advance,
