    Help please (weird symptoms)

    Hello everyone!
    I was first diagnosed with H Pylori on 23/7/2013, and my doctor put me on Nexium 20mg (Esomeprazole) and O2 (Ofloxacin & Ornidazole) for one week and then he put me on Nexium 20mg (Esomeprazole), Claritek (Clarithromycin) and Glomox 1000mg (Amoxicilin) for two weeks. At first, I felt better, ant the symptoms of H pylori disappeared. Unfortunately, I felt sick again after six months, and I went to my doctor, and he ran a few tests and told me that I have H Pylori again. He prescribed me the same medicines. I took them and I felt better again. I thought it would never come back again. However, I was diagnosed with it again last month. My doctor changed the prescription a little bit. He gave me Nexium 40mg (Esomeprazole), Tavacin 500mg (Levofloxacin), and Glomox 1000mg (Amoxicilin) for two weeks. I took them regularly and never skipped one. On the first five days, I felt as if I was myself again, but the rest of the days I felt as if the symptoms of H Pylori came again. I did not stop using my medication, and I went to my doctor after I finished them. He gave me Nexium 40mg (Esomeprazole) again and told me to take it for two weeks. I took the Nexium 40mg, and I accompanied it with some natural elements that have antibiotic properties; like black seed, curcumin, thyme, ginger, garlic and raw cabbage. I felt a little bit better, but then the symptoms came back again.
    The symptoms are bloating, gas, belching, teeth ache, headache, joints ache, lower back ache, fatigue, constipation (not severe) and cold extremities. These symptoms make me feel so uncomfortable. I don't know what is the relationship between them, but when the bloating and gas are gone, the other symptoms are gone too.

    I still have to wait one more week until I get myself tested for H. Pylori again.

    P.S. I started a gluten-free and processed-food diet one week ago, but I still have the symptoms.

    I am in Yemen, and the situation here is very devastating. Please, help me.

    Hope you feel better soon

    I myself suffer from acid/bile reflux and have had gastritis and duodenitis but have not had Pylori so don't quite know what to advise

    When you are off the antibiotics replenish good bacteria with pro biotics

    Re: Help please (weird symptoms)

    Thank you so much Rainbowsrock. I hope you get better soon too.

    I'm planning to take probiotics after the course, but I don't know what kind of probiotics or dosage I should take. Do you have any idea?

    Thanks again!

    I highly recommend home made milk kefir. Once you've got the grains they will live as long as you do as long as looked after properly, and your probiotics will only cost you the price of milk
    I use organic full fat milk and a 24 hour 'brewing' period for best taste
    48 hour is more beneficial but it goes too sour for me

    I have been suffering with H. Pylori for 3 years now.

    Hello everyone!

    I have been suffering with H. Pylori for 3 years now.

    These are my previous courses:

    1st treatment (triple)
    Nexium 20mg (Esomeprazole) and O2 (Ofloxacin & Ornidazole) for one week
    Nexium 20mg (Esomeprazole), Claritek (Clarithromycin) and Glomox 1000mg (Amoxicilin) for two weeks
    2nd treatment (triple)
    My doctor did not change anything. He just prescribed me the same medicines.
    3rd treatment (triple)
    Nexium 40mg (Esomeprazole), Tavacin 500mg (Levofloxacin), and Glomox 1000mg (Amoxicilin) for two weeks.

    I know that I must go to a doctor. But I have lost faith in my local doctors. They are unqualified enough. They don't even read. They just know what they learned at school. Besides, I am in Yemen, one of the poorest countries of the third world, and most of the GI specialists fled the country because of war.

    An Australian doctor recommended:
    Amoxicilin 1000mg tab
    Rabeprazol 20mg tab
    Rifabutin 150mg tab
    Ciprofloxacin 500mg tab

    But I could not find rifabutin in the biggest pharmacies in my country. I did not find furazolidone too.

    Thank you for you in advance.
