Yeah the ups and down are the worst, they give you hope and them...BAM again.
but that's the way it is and sadly we can't do much ( beside diet, no stress, VERY LIGHT exercises, and some supplements. But even those don't completely do the trick )

Yea it's absolutely awful. I like to work out 4-6 times a week, and have had to cut that down drastically (along with the weight I usually lift). Also seems like protein powder sets my stomach off so I can't use that either.

Hi all,

I also have the same experiences. Had my 2-week antibiotics treatment in December after 4 months of agony and had to go through 4 internist. Blood test and stool test came out negative but after endoscopy, they found HP infection.

Having H. Pylori really have changed my life. Before the infection, I usually work out at least 5 times a week in the gym. Right now, none. I easily get tired now. Two breath test in March came out negative (the first was on borderline level). Still not feeling well even though not as bad as before the antibiotic treatment.

I was so stressed out after the treatment, I went ahead and see a psychiatrist. He gives me 5mg of escitaploram a day. It's been six months after treatment and I still have cold sweats. Thinking of getting another endoscopy to confirm eradication or if not, go on the 2nd line antibiotic therapy. It's been a long time since I feel normal :(

The breath test is pretty accurate ( 90% ) it is also way cheaper. If you have any doubt do another one.
It is useless to take a second therapy if you don't have helicobacter anymore.

What was you first line treatment ? was it pylera ? I know this one can be hard on some people so does metronidazole

do you know if you still carry H. pylori? only without H. pylori, your stomach can heal. Otherwise, you are just wasting time waiting a recovery that will never come.

I was diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux disease a few years ago. Got hospitalized due to gastritis with hpylori last january and was given medication of 2 types of antibiotic and an antacid for 2 weeks. After now i wake up with this shuddering feeling in my stomach like it’s in turmoil mix with fast palpitation in my chest. When i check my pulse it’s normal( i think this one is related to my gerd) but the virbrating feeling in my stomach is bothering me so i take omeprazole as soon as i wake up and then it goes away. But i wake up again with the same feeling over and over and makes me think that something’s really wrong with my stomach.

interesting story. But H. pylori is known to correlate with all sort of gastric diseases. Since you have taken the treatment, have you check if your treatment is successful? if you have not taken any PPI for more than a month, perhaps, you can go get another breath test to confirm you are now free of H. pylori.

Is a breath test necessary for a person who had a gastritis with h pylori? My doctor didn’t suggest a breath test after the treatment. I called earlier for an appointment and asked me to do an hbt ultrasound. I’ll ask my doctor about it in my next visit. Will give an update the soonest.

many doctors didnt recommend a follow breath test. I strongly disagree on that. If you didnt find out if you were actually cured, then if your symptoms come back, you will never know if you got reinfected or treatment failure.

many people will believe that it is due to reinfection, which is not true. Because H. pylori is actually very difficult to pass around among adults.
