Red face E.Pylori

Help! I just got my test results back and my blood did test positive for H.Pylori. I was having ulcer symptoms with loose stools and abdominal cramping. My upper gi came back ok. Where does this bacteria come from? The doctor has me on 4 different pills, twice a day. Can anyone tell me where I can get more info on this infection. Also has anyone had any side effects from taking Prevacid? Thanks!

Hi Limille,

I also tested positive for the H. Pylori several months ago. I have no clue where I got it - they say contaminated water, feces, etc. I had ulcer symptoms and chest pain for almost 2 years before they found it. The main thing is you have to take all those pills properly - don't miss any! It is also good to have lots of yoghurt now - because the drugs can kill all the good bacteria. Also, the antibiotics made me feel pretty lousy but you just have to keep taking them. If you mess up, the bacteria won't be killed. Good Luck.

p.s. I had no side effects of prevacid. Just a really bad taste in my mouth and nausea from the antibiotics.
