One time, when I went to my internist for a physical and to talk to him about this breathing issue, they gave me a spirometry test to check lung function. I was sure I'd do terribly because I was so nervous and I couldn't get a deep breath for the life of me. I thought I'd pass out during the test but he said I did just fine. I went to a cardiologist who did an echo and everything was fine there too. Mine is much worse when stressed and I feel like I can't take a deep cleansing breath. It also feels like I'm wearing a brace around my chest when I try to breath deeply. It's worse when I'm tired too.

My internist, who was a GI guy, first suspected reflux. He said that can definitely cause shortness of breath. It wasn't in my case but maybe with your gastritis, it is. He also said that if some serious condition or disease was to blame, it wouldn't come and go. I've been like this for the past 2 yrs and it's just stayed the same. Most of the time here but sometimes I'm just fine.
