I have been running to the emergency dept with chest pains for 6 months chest left arm the whole packgage. After seeing three Cardio doc had 2 cat scans 2 ultra sounds 2 angiograms 6 months appart
Stress tests bone marrow sample about 6 emerge docters. All normal My Fam doc suggested to do a uppper GI and it came back acid reflux.
So all the pils i was taking only made things worse.
I went to see a natrophatic doc he sugested a blood test for H Pylori positve on antibiotics 4th day in I felt realy ill bloating burping pain but day 5 it was like a whole new world for me flatt belly no pain and no nausia in the morning like i had for over 3 years. I have one more week and i will stay on the antibiotic to make sure its gone.
So if anyone out there has chest pain like i did and heart is ruled out check your H Pylori you will be happy you did

Peter, this is the same thing that happened to me, except I never went to the emergency room, but many times felt like I should have. I had to research my symtoms online and felt like I may have H. Pylori. I went back to the doctor and ask him to do a blood test for it. He did and it came back positive. He then did a gastroscope to confirm it and said my stomach was completely red and raw. I feel like I had the H. Pylori for a year or longer. I took the PrevPac, which is no fun. It made me as sick as the disease, but I knew that I had to stick with it. I took it for 14 days and it really made me sick. It took me another two weeks to get over the treatment, but it was all worth it. H. Pylori doesn't only affect your stomach. It dries out your skin and hair very bad and very noticeable. Many times I felt like I was having a heart attack, the pain was so bad through to my back and into my arms. The bloating and nausea was also very bad. Anybody that is having these symtoms and cannot get over them, please ask your doctor to do a H. Pylori test and suffer through the treatment, you will be glad that you did.

I am having the same symptoms, the medication is terrible. I tried but I had to stop because I suffered from a stroke several years ago-- so my doctor took me off the antibotics. Now, my stom,ache is raw, hurt to touch. they put me on steroids but, it's not doing anything. I am also having blood in my stool. I feel aweful. Went to heath food store got Mastic Gum been taking now for 2 weeks-- feel better along with a Probotic, vitamin D,E and magnesium. I have to do this for 60 days. I will let you know what happens. I found out that mystic gum kills the hpv virus.

Dear Peter & Frenchlady,
Yes!!!!! I totally agree with both of you.(My "Yes!!" is not that I am happy you are sick - it just makes me feel not so alone to hear others stories). This is exactly what happened to me, also. It does feel like you are having a heart attack and anxiety attack all rolled into one great big ill episode. I ended up in the instant care thinking I was for sure having a heart attack.
H Pilori causes SO many other symptoms that the doctors don't always tell you about.
Be careful to watch out for Bacteria A Overgrowth. This can happen after taking a long or large dose of antibiotics. If you start feeling ill again, then ask for a Bacteria A Overgrowth breath test. Oddly enough you have to take antibiotics again to kill it, but I am taking lots of probiotics now to counter act it.
Good luck.
Colleen

- Hi Joanne, how r u? Hope your feeling better. I remember having that hunger feeling as well. Continue with your probiotics, i took probiotic supplements, it helped me alot. Im continuing them even after my treatment. Did you say u were still on treatment or are you finished? Make sure you take your meds on schedule, don't miss any doses. I did 14 days. Are u doing 14 or 10 again? Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi I have h pylori and my story is: I had jaw surgery and for two month I couldn't eat so I only ate milk things, after two month I'm not stopping to complain that my stomach kills me, my chest pulls me, my head hurts me, and my body feels weak, I don't want to eat because I don't have the appetite to eat! I was in the emergency room 2 times 20 doctors and finally one doctor told me it might be h pylori! I did the bag test and it came back positive. I was so happy that finally somebody is telling me that something is wrong with me and not that I'm crazy! I started to take the medication and i stopped because it wasn't good for me! So my doctor told me to see a GI doctor and next week I'm going to make tests and start medacation again! Im 19 years old and I'm freaking out ! I'm so afraid because it makes me sick every day I think okay maybe tomorrow I will wake up and say what a dream I had..... But no every day I wake up all my pain are there and I feel so down and depressed! If you can give me courage to tell me that everything will be okay and how you fighter h pylori please email me @ heysup.gk@gmail.com thanks
