So a few weeks ago I mentioned I had the Hydrogen Breath Test to see if I had a bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) in my gut, and it came back positive.
I'm now about to be prescribed the anti-biotic tetracycline and was wondering if anyone else has been on it? My sister has and she said all it gave her was trouble swallowing, but I worry that it'll make my already-bad nausea even worse! I'll still take the antibiotics of course, but want to know what I'm in for.
It's also worth mentioning that whilst I've been ill I've seen 4 different gastroenterologists and every single one said there was "No possible way" i could have the overgrowth and that the breath test was an extra precaution before referring me back to my GP - so dont accept the first thing they tell you, keep pushing!!!!
