HPylori and muscle weakness and neuropathy

by Kathy

Can H Pylori cause progressive leg weakness and neuropathy and then arm muscle weakness?

I had it 2 years ago and GI said it was gone. Wholistic nutritionist thinks it never went away and I have it still.

Just get tested

Hi Kathy,

It's kind of a moot question unless you actually do still have H pylori. Did you get tested after you got treated 2 years ago? If not, then your GI has no basis to have decided that it was gone after treatment.

And it's kind of weird to 'think' that someone still has H pylori when you can just test for it and find out. It is the proper 'standard of care' to get tested after treatment of the H pylori, so if you weren't retested, then just do so and there will be no need for anyone to speculate.

Then if you don't have it, there is no reason to believe that it would be causing your neuropathy. There are LOTS of Causes of Peripheral Neuropathy.

If you do have H Pylori, then get rid of it and see if your neuropathy improves. There is just no reason for a bunch of speculation until you actually find out if you have it. Then if you do, we can revisit that question again.
