10 Gastritis Symptoms

9. Bleeding

It was mentioned previously that a person with severe gastritis can have bloody vomit. However, sometimes a person can have chronic erosion in the gastric mucosa and bleeding is not so evident.

In those cases, the patient may have anemia due to the chronic blood loss and blackish stool due to the digestion of the blood in the intestines. This symptom is worse if the person has ulcers.
