I had a gastroscopy and a colonoscopy as I was experiencing a burning pain on the right side of my lower abdomen. I have suffered for years from IBS but the pain was increasing. The doc said I have a hiatal hernia and the Helicobacter Pylori infection. He has put me on to 2 antibiotics.

I was feeling sick after eating something and had bloating problem I was feeling that I am about to burst for couple of months. First the doctor prescribed me something for fungal infection. But it was not. Then last week when I see different doctor with the same problems she said we have to do stool test and finally I know that I have h. Pylori. I have 2 antibiotics to take for a week. I hope that will work. Otherwise they need to do further tests and endoscopy I had required.

I was diagnosed thru an endoscopy January. I tried to anti-biotic therapies for two weeks, and that almost worked but not fully.

I have been treated now five rounds of antibiotics for H. pylori and also gone for the scope. I was told I have a larger, looser opening that collects bacteria due to high acid environment. My next step is to do the breath test to see if my last treatment was successful or not. My health store suggested Manuka Honey made in New Zealand. It tastes great but needs to be taken on toast so it stays in the stomach longer to kill the bacteria. I was told at least two months straight it would work but, felt a difference right away. Good luck!

I have for the last three months been suffering from acid and the feeling of something stuck in my throat went. I went to see my doctor who in the first instance prescribed me with omopresole. I took one a day for a month and felt not better so I returned to my doctor who told me to increase the dose and arranged for me to have a breath test. A week later the results came back and I was informed of the helicobacter pyloro been present, I was therefore put on two types of antibiotics one been amoxicillin, and also clarithromycin, and omopresole. I have started the treatment today and I hope it will indeed sort this problem out. I will advise of my progress once I have finished the course of treatment.
