H pylori??

Hi There!

First time posting these boards, and I'm finding it all very helpful! Here's my prob!!

About 2 and half years ago I experienced upper stomach discomfort...bloating, gassiness, especially an hour or so after eating...Tried cemetidine and losec..all to no avail. Had endoscopy done to check for h pylori/ulcer etc and the test came up clear.. There was alot of redness down there, which prompted to Dr to ask if I was a heavy smoker!! (I don't smoke!). Went on Nexium for 8 weeks after the test, and my stomach gradually cleared...

Now, about 8 weeks ago I experienced similar symptoms...Went on Nexium again, figuring that should clear it up. It didn't! Furthermore, by week three of taking them, I developed tingling in my mouth and itchy skin, all over esp soles of feet and palms of hand! Went off the Nexium, and by this stage my GP decided to send me to a gasterenterologist. I'm due to go next week, and to be honest, I'm terrified!!! Will I have to endure another endoscopy? OR, worse still, a colonoscopy??!!

My main question here is this: Is it possible to have H pylori now, even though I had a clear test a couple of years ago?? My own GP thinks not... Many members of my family were ill with the vomiting bug around the time I began to feel ill, and I'm just wondering if I got the H pylori from that??

What do any of you think??

ps Aslo, I was going through a fairly stressful time around the same time too...stress related problem perhaps??

Sorry for the long post! I need help!!

Re: H pylori??

Forgot to mention, I've been taking Pariet for the past couple of weeks, and find my symptoms have eased somewhat...

Would welcome any opinion/input...
