I fight bloating off/on, going on 6 years. Initially I was told they found a peptic ulcer and prescribed acid reducers for a while. It never seemed to help. They did a blood test for h.pylori a couple of years later, and it was negative. BUT, I notice my bloating improves with antibiotics, like when I have a dental procedure. Has anybody with h.pylori-type ulcer ever notice the air/bloating/"sailor" burps before they were treated?
