could I be having hpylori
Dear sir /Madam
I have been suffering from gastritis for the last 3years and was diagnosed with antral gastritis after taking an endoscopy....my problem is that I still havent been able to get rid of it even though i have been very careful with my food etc....the doctors always prescribe PPI s and anti acids and these only make me feel worse ....the moment I m asked to take them I start bloating and putting on more weight than i seem to do after getting the gastritis....I was an asthmatic from childhood but it was well controlled at the time I got the gastritis but ever since i got it I seem to be having phlem problems and sinus congestion etc.
The Gas and the bloating is the worst part....recently I had the flu and a very bad sinus infection for which I was given many courses of antibiotics along with PPI and after that I noticed that my boated stomach had gone down and i seemed to have lost some weight too which looked like water weight I was feeling slim again and didint bloat and have intestinal gas alot everytime I ate but still there wAs a little bit of burning under my rib when i ate....as I figured I was healing I took a course of PPI for 3weeks but sadly onces again the PPIs totally messed up things and within that month I almost put on 10kgs in weight and the bloating and stomach gass has become really bad
....could this happen if I M HAVING AN hPYLORI infection as I have read that when stomach acid is low the infection grows even more...Please let me know what you think ..thank you
