Hi,

I am going to 2nd treatment next week.

My symptoms is weird, when I get reflux, i get pain in the left side of the neck. it is like sharp pain. neurological pain.
While i was taking PPI, the pain had gone. when I stopped PPI, The pain occur again

I had breath test and result was positive.
In 1st treatment, I had Nexium PH7 for 7 days, after a month, when I had breath test for the confirmation , The GP said the disintegration rate is increased than before. How come? is it resistance? but my symptom get much better than before though.

My GP give me two options. one is another 2 weeks with nexium PH7, the other is to meet specialist to get more strong antibiotics.
With nexium pH7, my symptom get quite better now, but still the bacteria remain.
I dont want to get strong antibiotics which might cause more serious side effect such as Ulcerative Colitis, irritable bowel disease.

What should do i do?

Could the expert be able to give the advice?

Thanks.

You can try PPI + AMOX + Metronidazole + bismuth

This is a modified triple therapy.

You cannot take clarithromycin any more.

Thank you, Helico_expert,

Has the drug you let me know no serious side effect? like Ulcerative colitis?
and when I had nexium PH7, I had itch and red spot on the foot and disappeared quickly within few hours.
Can i still get the drug you recommended?

I know handling antibiotic is quite hard. that is why I trust advice from here rather than specialist.
Thank you and appreciate your advice.

hahaha... i think you better trust the specialist than people in forum.

The antibiotics cannot stop Ulcerative colitis if you are already having one. However, bismuth can prevent C. diff complication.
