I posted recently about my hubby being positive for H Pylori. I have had digestive issues for years so I asked GP if I could be tested. It was a real fight as she did not see the need as I did not have any acidly type symptoms. Anyway it turns out that I am positive for H Pylori and I now have to take two types of antibiotics and Omeprozole (sp?) a PPI. I don't really suffer reflux or acid. I actually think that I have low stomach acid as I don't seem to digest food very well and stomach emptying is delayed. I also get constipation. So I tried the PPI last night and today I have got horrendous acid stomach, burning and heartburn. It is awful. I never get these type of symptoms.
Does anyone know if I could take the antibiotics alone without taking the ppi's or shall I just preserve with them. Would it make a difference in eliminating the H Pylori? Thanks for any advice or thoughts.
