Question H.pylori, GERD - Help needed

Hi all,

This is my first thread and post in this forum

I'm 32 years old. I've never had any major health issues until this year. I started experiencing gnawing stomach pain, indigestion, stomach bloating and excessive burping since April of this year. I went to my PCP and she suspected H.pylori based on my symptoms. I did the breath test which came out positive. I took triple therapy for 2 weeks, which was like hell. They re-tested me with the breath test after 6 weeks of treatment completion. It came back positive

I did the quadruple therapy. Felt like hell again. My symptoms did improve a bit but I still have stomach pain along with burping. My PCP referred me to a Gastroentrologist. They've done stool, blood tests which came back normal. I had an upper GI endoscopy this Monday. I've had biopsy samples taken from my stomach and duodenum to test for H.pylori.

I don't think I can handle another round of antibiotics. I've had severe diarrhea, nausea , headaches and dizziness during both previous rounds of antibiotic therapy. Probiotics helped with some of these side-effects but I'm afraid my body can't take more antibiotics.

Has anyone else experienced similar treatment failure? Also did any natural treatments work for you? Thank you.
