I wish that some of the posters would have come back with an update. I have H. Pylori for the 2nd time and have several ulcers. Its very painful, especially the left side under the ribcage. It was confirmed with Endoscopy. They are treating it with 2 antibiotics because that's what it takes to get rid of it.
I have had occasional pain below my left ribcage since my gallbladder was removed. Is this a symptom of hpylori? I had a bacterial infection last summer and was on two antibiotics but I don't know if it was hpylori.
My gastro doc said that it was intestinal spasms since the intestines are the only thing on that lower left side.
