Girlie, do you have any other symptoms that suggest H. Pylori?
I recently had the full gamut of GI symptoms out of nowhere, so tested for C diff and H. Pylori and nothing came back positive - still not sure how i feel about that. I was Dx IBS instead.
I went to my regular dr because I have had some phlegm in the back of my throat for several weeks - waking up with it - and periodically throughout the day. And I know that can be caused by acid reflux.
And a few days my stomach was bloated as well.
And in the late afternoon and evenings acid reflux
She doesn’t hesitate to run tests - so after giving me a script
for Zantac - she also gave me a lab req to get the h pylori test done.
I don’t know how to differentiate between h pylori symptoms and IBS.
My symptoms are not affecting my intestines - ie no diarrhea or constipation... mine is higher up - stomach and throat.
