Why did my stomach hurt after H pylori treatment?

Why did my stomach hurt after H pylori treatment?

The antibiotics killed everything in my stomach AND intestine, causing me to have burning feeling in it and feeling uneasy. The stress was something that generated acid in my stomach, which would hurt ( because i stressed when i was not eating ). The combination of those 3 make my guts a living hell for about a week.

When do you feel better after H pylori treatment?

If you were infected for a short while you don’t have much damage so you should be fine in about 2 weeks after treatment. For those like me who had it for 4 month of pain ( and probably a lot longer but without symptoms ) it will be longer. I know its sad, its a hassle, it is something you will despite for the rest of your life trust me.

When to take a breath test for H pylori?

I was back to a different gastroenterologist recently for stomach pain and changes in bowel movement. They did the breath test and confirmed H. pylori. I think my 11 year old may have it as well and am taking her to see her doctor for testing. I had been in a short relationship with a new girlfriend.

How can you tell if you have Helicobacter pylori after treatment?

These can only be confirmed by having a look down into the gut with a test called gastroscopy (endoscopy). However, if symptoms go after treatment for H. pylori then that is the end of the matter. You do not need further tests such as gastroscopy. You will not know exactly what caused the symptoms but this does not matter if the symptoms have gone.

What kind of stomach pain does H pylori cause?

I classify them into the following basic groups: Heartburn or an acid feeling in the chest. Extreme chest pain, often associated with acute H pylori infection. Stomach cramps. Dull, chronic lower abdominal pain. Intense stabbing pain in the lower abdominal area. Pain that is alleviated by bowel movements or passing wind.

What are symptoms of Helicobacter pylori after treatment?

I mostly seem to have symptoms of reflux and indigestion (sour taste in mouth, slight yellow coating on tongue, occasionally a scratchy throat, and possibly regurgitation?) I also get gas and a lot of rumbling in my intestines if I eat something that is a little bit heavy.
