My story of breath smelling like my feces :o

Post by luzeru1990 » Tue Jun 12, 2018 11:27 am

So my breath has weird smell of feces. It has been on and off since I was about 11 when I was living in East Africa. I went to ENT and they couldn't figure out where the smell was coming from. I should mention smell happens especially right after eating.

fast forward to age 27....

I start having really bad heartburn and the smell now being constant, no matter how I clean my entire mouth and gargle my throat. So I finally decided to see a digestive health specialist. They did an endoscopy a couple of weeks ago for me; the Doc discovered I have esophogeal hernia and that stomach and duodenum are inflamed. He took samples while down there to be tested. The biopsy came back positive for h. pylori. WhoopyDoDo!

Today I started on the antibiotic Pylera and Prilosec.

We'll see how things turn out - wish me luck ;-)
