A couple of months ago I started to feel quite unwell. During lockdown I was walking maybe 10 miles a week but all of a sudden I found it difficult to even walk 3 miles before feeling exhausted.
I was also feeling quite nauseous and even though my temperature was normal I was feeling very hot in bed.
I put up with it for a while thinking it was just a bug but it continued so I saw my doctor. They did blood tests, stool tests for various things and it all came back as satisfactory, yet the symptoms continued. They said she would test for Helicobacter Pylori and it came back positive...what a relief I thought. After a course of antibiotics and omeprazole I waited a week to see if the symptoms would subside but alas they didn't. They put me on another course of antibiotics and omeprazole which I have now finished but I am still having problems.
My question is this, how long does it take for things to start feeling better, if there is an ulcer would that take longer to heal after the anti-biotics (she has told me to keep taking the omeprazole once a day). Is it possible a 3rd week of antibiotics will be required? If you leave a weeks gap between doses does the pesky infection come back to full strength and need more and more.
The thing is it is so debilitating, this constant feeling in your stomach and pain bloating elsewhere, I am just so fed up of it. It's also causing anxiety (which I guess does not help) because I just feel awful.
Hope someone can help
