Still have symptoms

by Joe Rivera
(Union, NJ)

I was having uncomfortable bloating and gas since October. Did every test possible and found I had hpylori. Did a 10 day course of antibiotics, did the breath test and came back negative. However still have the same symptoms.

Dr tried prescribing different meds for ibs, acid reflux, etc. But again still have symptoms. Went to holistic dr I went on silver, mastic, gum, tumeric, and still have symptoms. I am so frustrated I do not know what to do. I had already been on a healthy diet so it's not that. But I did try gluten free and still to no avail still have bloating.

I pleeeeease need help. I can't keep going on feeling like this with no answers. It is now August and have done pretty much everything. 10 months of herbal supplements, probiotics, super healthy diet, and courses of antibiotics. Is there possibly anything else out there?

Next steps to try

If a gluten free diet and H pylori eradication did not help, then I'd try getting a Complete Pathogen and Parasite Test.

Since you've already been tested for H pylori, you can get the 'without H pylori' option. But you may have some other parasite. Just because you had one does not mean that you do not have other ones. I personally had both H pylori and Blastocystis Hominiis.

So, that may be your best next step.

Thanks Kerri. It is definitely worth the shot. Thanks for the suggestion. I will let you know it works out.

Stool Test > Breath Test

Get a stool test. The breath test is quite inconclusive. Good chance you still have HP.
