Chronic Gastritis Cure advise after treatment. Food Intoler.

Post by vampirita » Wed Jul 29, 2015 8:44 am

I want to congratulate you for all the information in this forum. It is very useful to us.

I would like to tell my story to see if I can expand my vision of what this disease means (gastritis) and how can i handle it.

Since late 2013 (28 years old) I started having joint pain and discomfort in the intestines (diarrhea or constipation). I also felt disoriented and sometimes very tired with no appetite.

In the spring of 2014 I began to have changes in skin tone (white spots or discoloration), extreme dryness, stomach mild pain and intestinal inflammation with a lot of gases, especially when taking milk and dairy products, cereals and bread. I decided to go to the emergency room and I was diagnosed with gastritis after a bood test. I was given a diet and told it would probably disappear in a few days with diet. Weeks after, i was getting worse. I was weak, with severe headaches (migraines), bowel and joints pain. My eyes started to get very red after meals and I began to forget things and feel very disoriented. My symptoms were really bad, couldn't tolerate most starchy foods. Especially gluten. Fruits and sugar made me feel also bad. I could only eat leafy green vegetables, soups and cooked meat. Corn and rice that I never had problem with, began to irritate me. After each meal, it was as if i had a general electric shock in my body. I began to have itching skin, my eyes turned puffy and red like a tomato, I came out with rashes on the face and some parts in the body (dermatitis type), and had constipation episodes followed by diarrhea with very fetid tools. The wine and beer were like poison to me (even if i only drank a glass). Anyway I have never been an occasional drinker or smoker. In fact, i use to be very healthy, avoiding junk food and vices. Stronger reactions usually began the next day of having eating any cereals/sweets/starch. I started with severe muscle and joint pain, followed by brain fog. I felt that I could only lie in bed and I started to lose the appetite and also 5 kilos of weight. So, i began to worry and decide to take control of my health.

My doctor suspected that i was probably gluten intolerant and we decided to arrange all the necessary tests. (Complete blood count, urine and stool culture, dysbiosis test (genetic), endoscopy and colonoscopy.

The diagnosis were:
1.Gastroscopy: incompetent cardia. Moderate chronic antral gastritis superficial, with mild intraepithelial activity data. Fews bacillary structures corresponding to H. Pylori.
2. Moderate Dysbiosis (21-40) HPLC
3. Stools: Trofozoitos Blastocystis hominis 1-2 / c. Rests of food in the stool. Occult blood
4. March: 0 (for coeliac desease)

So, my doctor gave me the Conventional First-Line Triple Therapy for pylori during 10 days with:

Omeprazole 20 mg bid
Clarithromycin 500 mg bid
Metronidazole 500 mg bid

After a month of treatment I had to perform the breath test to confirm eradication, but to my surprise, i was pregnant, so I have not done yet. Is it advisable, safe in my case? I would like to take the test, so i wonder if there is any antibiotic therapy (in case the test still positive) for pregnant women?

The treatment has taken away a little gas and bloating. But I'm still with intolerance to many foods and have more heartburn than before. Nor I can eat a lot because I have some reflux and nausea and still lossing weights. I follow gluten-free diet and I feel a little more relieved since that. But the symptoms worsen with cereals, starch, sweets and some fruits. Headaches are sometimes unbearable, besides the malaise, but i try not to take NSAIDs however. It is normal to still have intolerances and so much disfonfort after eating? how long doest it takes to heal the lining of the stomach after treatment?

Was it neccesary to continue taking omeprazole after the first treatment, and whether, if so, is there any alternative for pregnant women?
Is there any protocol to follow after eradication to heal gastritis?
Can my husband to be infected because of me and, if so, re-infected me after erradication?
I'm a little worried because I have still swollen intestines and feel so much heartburn and headaches after meals.

Thank you in advance for your useful help.
Carina

There can be multiple causes of stomach pain after eating. Some people are so used to binging through every meal that a stomachache almost becomes part of their daily lives. “It’s just a tummy ache,” you might say.

H. pylori is a very chronic infection. It will take months for ulcer to form. Although the antibiotics are generally very safe, it is difficult to tell if it might give your unborn any side effects. So, since the H. pylori is not terribly dangerous and most people actually carry H. pylori without a symptom. So, I think it is up to you to get a breath test to find out if you are still infected. And if you are still infected, just ignore it and control your symptom via PPI.

in regards to reinfection, although it is rare, It is likely that your husband may infect you with H. pylori. So, your husband may want to get a check up and can plan for eradication together after your child is born.

if i have not answered your question, please do ask again.

Hello Guys! Thank you so much for the answers. I will be arranging some more tests in order to know if the bacteria is still there.
Somehow, iam experiencing a lot of acid reflux now after treatment, and after almost every meal. Of course it coud also occur due to pregnancy.

I will keep you inform with the news and doctor's recomendations, just in case there is someone else in my situation.

Have a good weekend!

Most of folks all over the globe are suffering from the problems of gastritis. It is a trouble because of the thinning of belly lining as a result of dyspepsia. Some people says over-eating is offender while others feel exorbitant use of drugs. However, this is not something which cannot be cured. retouching diet, exercising control over cholesterol-based food, and drinking water and juice of fruits are a few good solutions. By keeping regular check on weight, the metabolic and digestion system remain intact, thus, inhibit ulcers.

Cleaning out the colon is sometimes necessary as the process will help you to get rid of the toxins that have been accumulated overtime from the food we eat. For clean and healthy colon, colonics is an highly effective treatment(http://www.coloncleansetoronto.ca/servi ... rotherapy/ ). But I don't know whether it's safe during pregnancy.
