Can H Pylori Cause Feet and Legs to Swell?

by Fredda

For 19 months, I fought a swelling in my feet and legs that no one could explain. I am not overweight, and am not prone to swelling.

Then, we discovered that I had HP for the second time, and I started the antibiotic treatment. Within a week, the swelling was gone and has been completely gone for 9 months.

However, the past couple of weeks, the swelling is beginning again. Although my doctors tell me that the swelling does not go with the bacteria, it does seem as though it did. I'm trying to decide if I could have it again. Suddenly, I am belching again, and that is not normal for me either.

Thanks so much!

Hi Fredda,

Taking medication for H pylori does not guarantee that you got rid of your H pylori. H Pylori Eradication can fail up to 1/3 of the time. That means that one in three people's treatment fail to get rid of H pylori.

So, if you THINK that you still have H pylori after treatment, the next step is to get an H Pylori Stool Test and find out. And if you have swelling that resolves when you get rid of H pylori, well, who are doctors to say that H Pylori is not the cause of that? I have seen crazier Symptoms of H Pylori than that. The test needs to be a stool test because the H pylori blood test can remain positive for a very long time even if you have successfully treated the infection.

So, get tested, and if you still do have H pylori, get the book The H Pylori Solution so you can finally get rid of the infection once and for all.
