  I wanted to know if anyone who has Lupus or Lupus like symptoms has ever had H pylorie??? Ive had it for 5 years the meds they gave me to get rid of it was too strong its a triple antibiotic that is 10 times worse then a regular stomache ache. Well anyways I was just diagnosed with Lupus in aug of 09 and from taking other antibiotics for infection and any anti imflamatorys they have caused my h pylorie to come back stronger then normal. So I did some research and I fould out that If you have H pylorie and it dosnt get cleared up it can cause your imune system to basically give up and that can cause Lupus and all other auto imune diseases.  I see a doc next week to see what I actually have and figure out what the treatments will be. I just want to see if its ever been a problem for anyone else.  Thanks for your time and words,

Hi. Was tested and diagnosed with H pylorie back in 2002 or so. Think I used a prev-pak (not positive on the name) and it cleared up. It was probably about 6 months later that I was diagnosed with lupus. And I do remember the meds were not fun! Good Luck!
Take care, Fran
