I never had any problems with the H pylori bacterial infection symptom wise; the only reason I found out about having this stomach bacteria is, I was stressed due to opening a store and the location was bad, I was on a diet, began losing weight rapidly due to stress level and PCP sent me to GI Doctor just to be sure I was ok: I just had a routine Upper GI and Colonoscopy; was told after tests that I had the H pylori infection in my stomach. I was told that I had to have gotten the bacteria between the ages of 6 - 12 years old from well water or something. I never had any complications until after treatment. I was prescribed for two weeks, two high dose antibiotics 1500mg AM/PM and an acid reducer. After taking all the meds, the next week I came down with an upper respiratory problem that began with a clear drip from my nose. It lasted for a week or so and went away. about four weeks down the road, it came back with extreme mucus in the nose, mild sore throat (that didn't last but a day), but the mucus in the nostrils lingered. I have never had a head cold in my entire life. I called my PCP, she stated that sometimes antibiotics can lower your immune system, and that more than likely I was suffering from a viral upper respiratory problem.
I am a vocalist who performs frequently and this sinus/upper respiratory infection is causing havoc!!!
Please respond if this happened to you after treatment of the H Pylori Bacterial Infection...
