H Pylori symptoms - very concerned
I'm so glad that I found this discussion board. I was recently diagnosed with recurring H Pylori and am currently on Nexium HP7 protocol which includes 1 nexium tab twice a day, 1 Klacid twice a day and 2 tabs of amoxil also twice a day. My doctor has referred me to a Gastroenterologist which I will be visiting this week as he suspects that I may have a hernia or an ulcer. In addition to this I will more than likely require an endoscopy as well.
Please can someone advise if these following symptoms are typical of Pylori? Belching after meals, passing wind (sorry!) slight fullness in the stomach, pain on left side under breastbone which feels like a bruise and which comes and goes, mid back pain and also at times I also feel like I have a golf ball in my throat and sometimes find it difficult to breathe.
I am very worried as sometimes I fear the worst and I'm not sure if all of this is setting of some anxiety in me.
Please if anyone can respond to this thread I would be most appreciative. Just need some good advice which will settle me emotionally before I see the gastroenterologist.
Good health to all of you. Bella
