Could Multiple Health Problems be From H Pylori
About 3 yrs ago I became run down with work and taking care of my mother, I developed shingles and a sinus infection. I was put on acyclovir and the shingles cleared quickly, but soon after started amoxicillin for the sinus infection and developed swelling of the lips and a taget lesion type rash.
I was also taking a lot of Motrin at the same time for the headaches and back pain. Anyway, the reaction was missed for several days despite 2 doctor visits and a visit to the ER. a doctor I work with saw the pictures of the rash and called me at home, told me to come to the hospital and admitted me. I was released after 5 days. I have
seen an immunologist now and since then continue to have:
vit B12 deficiency
nausea & vomiting (esp at night).
I had my gallbladder removed due to stones and persistent N&V. After surgery the symptoms became worse! My daughter had H Pylori about 2 yrs ago and I asked my doc to check me b/c the vomiting is so bad now, and sure enough, my blood was positive for h pylori antigen!
Do you think this infection could have been my problem all along? I am still taking prednisone every day and would LOVE to get off it!
thanks so much,
