After weeks of horrible stomach pain, bloating, gas, belching, rapid heart beat, arm and shoulder pain I was finally tested today for h pylori and was positive. This morning I woke up at 3:30am with that scared to death that something terrible was happening to me that I sent my bp and heart rate sky high, went to doctor cause I was afraid that I was having a heart attack and she tested me for the bacteria. Gave me 2 antibiotics and prilosec. Problem is I have a history of alergic reactions to antibiotics and now scared to take one of the ones she gave me cause I have never taken it before. I feel so doomed!
