Can you have H Pylori and not infect others?
Can one have this badly for YEARS and not infect one's spouse or other family or friends? It's contagious, isn't it? I have all the symptoms, but I'm the only one around me that has it. I've been on Omeprizole for several years and still need sodium bicarbonate and Rolaides, etc..
And I take double doses of the Omeprizole, already! I've changed my diet, no fried foods, no meat, no dairy, no processed, etc.. Extremely clean.. Only fresh produce, nuts, seeds and unprocessed ancestral grains ... I gave up alcohol 4 months ago... I drink a TON of water... I'm actually getting kind of afraid to eat, because EVERYTHING hurts! I'm DESPERATE to get off the Omeprizole, but I can't seem to stop BURNING!!
My stomach is always distended like I'm 7-8 months pregnant and I feel full and bloated .. Even though I don't eat much, and when I do, it's just a lite salad with home made dressing..
Anyway, HPylori??? Could this be it?
