I recently went to my doctor for chest, abdominal and back pains. He did blood testing and it came back with a high level of h pylori bacteria. My doctor didn't explain anything to me, just called and said I have 3 medications to pick up at the pharmacy.
I've searched the Internet for answers and feel so embarrassed and gross because it most of what I've read says it's from poor hygiene or transmitted orally or sexually. I am a very clean person, and my husband is as well, and doesn't have any symptoms that I do. How else could I have gotten this? Should I have my husband and kids tested?
