Random body aches H. pylori
I am 27 y.o. male.
I just wanted to know if anybody feels the way I do and what can cause such illness.
Blood tests indicated a high conc. of H. pylori in my stomach. Taking PrevPac, one day left. Indigestion, random body aches especialy around joints, bloated stomach, palpitations and hadache that forced me to get CT scan done. ( My grandpa died from brain tumor) CT=normal
My diet consists of small amounts of food that is mainly boiled. Once after meal, I feel abdominal fulness, and fatigue, nausea and headaches start later in the day. I lost about 16 pounds during two month period, and I believe part of it is indigestion that I have. Deiarhia (spelling ?) started yesterday. Additionaly, a very ackward taste in my mouth, of a bile or some kind of base, appeared just recently.
I am a chemist in biomedical field and it requires a great deal of memorization plus data handling. I noticed I cannot concentrate on things that are simply part of daily routine.
Those are the test that came normal: thyroid, kidney, liver, CBC, arthritis=test for amount of urea in a blood sample. Do you think I should get tested for glucocorticoids and mineral corticoids conc. ?
My heart rate has increased and SYS + DIA. pressure went down. No murmurs, but I am seeing cardiologist tomorow, to perform heart stress test, followed by endoscopy. Additional blood testing will be done with some repeats.
I am not sure what could this be but I lift weights maxing out for the most part and I wonder if this all could be caused by hiatal hernia (not diagnosed) wich perhaps may pinch the vagus nerve, or perhaps fold of the herniated stomach has a bleeding ulcer. However stools don't have any visual indication of blood or "ground been" black dots. Vomit is blood free as well.
Please let me know what other test should I do. What could cause such random illness, had you had anything alike what was the diagnosis and how did you go about treating it.
This healt incompatibility is lasting since begining of february 2005.
Thank much, stay healthy
