You know perhaps your right after thinking about I think I will give it a 8 out of 10
I like that anyways I'm a glass half kinda person anyways and you know what 20 yrs old suck I was newly married had a baby and was horribly broke and just needed some direction due to lack of father maybe no complaining though yeah I think 30 is a little iffy ill take 34 back thing have been awesome since then
Ok so what kinda motorcycle do I have a 2002 Honda Interceptor 800cc red as my wife like to call it spanky butt red haha I've always been a sports bike kind of guy although Harley and that style of bike is very nice friends I ride with are 50% Harley's and the rest are a mixture of street bikes,dual sport bikes,and Harley looking cruiser bikes a lot of different brands. I also have a Yamaha zuma 125 cc black it's a on and off road scotter no shifting its automatic my wife has even road it solo and with me I just got it 3 month ago OMG its soooo much fun never thought I would have something like it it get 94 MPG !! Has a huge cargo under the seat lol I've been shopping you name it fun to zip around on will do 60 MPH ! I had many over the years but I've always kept this one I will ride it till I have to (due to age) move to something else my back cannot take the long rides anymore getting old kinda sucks. You can google the two I have and see photos I would post one but have no idea how to on this site. My wife has not ridden on the back of my sport bike for over five years there's no back so its just not comfortable for her or me cause she will lay on me which was fine when I was younger but no more so sad.

So you have had what sounds like a promising day ! I'm pretty sure these meds we are on are what are causing the dizzy spells they are weird and random
Do you feel hungry a lot or have a hungry appetite?

Re: H Pylori

I'm glad you're doing better!

I would never take magnesium for any sort of infection. It reduces immune response. And I wouldn't take magnesium unless I were very much too thin, it slows metabolism making it more difficult to stay trim.

A study showed one reason H. pylori infection can be so persistent is because the bacteria can actually live inside yeast cells.* Living inside the yeast then shields a small reserve of the bacteria from being eliminated by the antibiotics so the infection can return easily after ending antibiotics unless yeast are eliminated too. That's probably why probiotics can help so much. They help flush yeast out of digestion by renewing the beneficial bacteria population. You might find cranberry juice helps with this as well for its mild anti-yeast effect, and it shouldn't interfere with the absorption or activity of any antibiotics.

* Salmanian et al. Yeast of the oral cavity is the reservoir of Heliobacter pylori. 2008.


Kuipers 1999 says people probably shouldn't take a proton pump inhibitor until after overcoming H. pylori infection (PMC2579004). That seems like something you might want to ask your doctor about.

Re: H Pylori

Day 9!!!! wasnt so good, not sure why, just felt trembly and off most of the day, figures, I have one good day out of the last year!?!

to answer your question about appetite...NO I eat because I have to, I will admit if I am to feel the least bit hungry its in the evening before my second dose of meds

everyone keeps telling me how great I look because I have lost over 30lbs due to this...but it makes me sad and scared

I am trying to lower my dose of klonopin so maybe thats why today wasnt the greatest

I have always had problems with dizzy spells and vertigo, but these meds are making it worse, and your right very random

so whats this bring you to now day 12 or 13? I cant wait to get off this garbage

I take the best probiotic our nature store has to offer and will keep taking it for a long time

I am still belching and get pretty bad gut cramps but mostly 1st 1/2 of the day than it settles down for the most part

Real foggy headed today too...and of course it was absolutely gorgeous out today, 70's!!!!
have a good night

Sorry your day was so bad I have had only two maybe three out 13 days on this stuff

Day 13 Sucked got in this morning to do some yard work before it gets to hot I'm not sure what I did but I did something tweaked my lower back horrible pain
Finally could not take it anymore and took some Flexabenz 5 mg and then a little later another still hurts but its better then I got really drowsy it really sleep dosed on and off while ice and then heat on my lower back I hate to take those things cause they make me tired and feel weird so needles to say its sucked not sure if it was h pylori and meds related but oh we'll
One positive note this is day two that I not noticed any left or right tummy pain hope that sticks
Only tomorrow to go hen no more meds
So I have a thought how long after should we be updating about stuff like on a daily routine that is ? Any thought ?

Re: H Pylori

sorry to hear about your back, hope its feeling better today.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! tomorrow is your last day

I guess now that you are done with treatment your not going to need to update daily

Just let me know when they are going to retest you and whether or not its been eradicated or not


My day was about the same as most have been. I will say my stomach was better though

Re: H Pylori

Hi three days off and am a little bit better, but still have issues.
see GI on wed. but when I called to see when they will retest me I was told they "dont retest, because I should be fine". I told the nurse, well Im NOT so somebody better do something about that,

I also am going to be tested for Candida, pretty sure I have that too

tomorrow I go for the 1st of many visits to a specialist to have my mercury fillings removed. that in itself may have caused all this nonsense.

its a laborious thing to go through but plain and simple my mouth is killing me with all this mercury in it. I have a mouth full of fillings...all mercury

Re: H Pylori

Wow all your old fillings will be replaced? I have quit a few myself yuck
Well I go back to the dr the 24 th of this month for a follow up but to be honest being off the antibiotics for a week now I feel pretty much the same as i did prior so I'm going to call this a failure. And just to add to the fun my off and on again facial tingling/numbness has came back I had this issue about this time last year dr said it was Rosacea but I don't think so so today was just miserable for me felt worn out facial tingling all over still having that feeling of just crappy hope your days to come are better good luck

Re: H Pylori

Hello there,
I have been suffering from an array of symptoms of late,including upper abdomen pain, nausea, burning in my chest/throat, coated tongue, frothy saliva, strange bowel movements (Greasy with undigested food in them), burping and hiccups, fatigue, low moods and panic attacks, plus aches/pains and weird bodily symptoms, I have lost around 20 pounds and have eaten quite normal. The list of symptoms go on and on.
My Doc prescribed me with PPI's when I first visited her with upper abdomen pain. Initially they made me feel sick, so I ceased taking them. Anyway when I returned she ran several bloods and tested my stool for H Pylori.
the test was negative, but I had been taking PPI's within two weeks of the test for H Pylori, which can prove a false negative.
I have since had CT, Ultrasound, Endoscopy, Colonoscopy and many other scans and tests, nothing abnormal found.
The thing is they did not bother doing a biopsy during my Endoscopy (Which found a small hiatus hernia, and 2 small erosion's in my esophagus.
I am really starting to think my problems may possibly be H Pylori related, does anybody relate to what I experiencing?
I am still on PPI's which are doing squat for my stomach.

did you get rechecked to see if it has been eradicated? I will be giving a stool sample (sorry about being so graphic) in another week 4 weeks past ending treatment.

I had a C-T scan of abd today and they want me to have HIDA scan. I am still sick as ever.

I have the Braggs Apple cider vinegar havent taken it regularly though. Please let me know how this new regimen works for you. I have heard good and bad about DGL.
I am living on pepto bismol, thats what they used to use to treat HP before the antibiotic treatment.

Re: H Pylori

Hi Lain how have things been for you?
I started today trying something new called D-Limonene 1000 mg away to start
A friend of mine who is also a long time suffer of GERDS follows a lot of clinical trials and said there has been a few using this stuff for GERDS check it out I would post a link but I got in trouble for that before just search the web
I will let you know own it goes.
Also for me the nagging upper and left and right stomach have been either gone or mild
But other that some days I feel good some day I feel bad so I'm guessing the antibiotic did nothing as cures goes I do go to the dr again on Friday to follow up again but mainly to check my vitamin d level which were low last check I gave some blood today so in taking 2000 mg a day as instructed by the Dr
Talk to you later
