New to Helico

Ulcers of the duodenum and stomach are called peptic ulcers. H.pylori causes most ulcers; other causes are aspirin and arthritis type drugs (NSAIDS). Ulcers can also be in the oesophagus but these are not caused by H.pylori.

New to Helico

Post by Lotsofpain » Mon Apr 09, 2012 5:31 pm

I am quite new to helicobacter. I have been having pain and diarrhea for several years though all the tests like colonoscopy etc show nothing leading to a diagnosis by exclusion of IBS.

At the moment I have loose stool all the time though not always that frequent and left sided lower abdomen pain. LOads of bloating and wind Can be very sore not least because I have developed anal fissures at some point, Can all this be related to helicobacter.

More recently I have been having problems with my upper abdomen pain sometimes hard to swallow tend to cough.

Advice please

These symptoms might be related to Helicobacter. However, I think the best way to know if you have helicobacter is to do a quick breath test. If it positive, you'll be treated and hopefully your symptoms will go away.

Good luck
