In january i got a endoscopy because i was having heart palps, chest pain and got very sick. i had a bunch of heart test that ruled out any heart problems. My throat glands where swollen very bad so my doc ordered a endoscopy wth biopsy. The results where a inflamed stomach and h pylori. I was given the prev pack which almost killed me. I began to feel better. then weeks later got sick again and had to get my tonsils removed in febuary because they were holding an infection. i began to feel better weeks later. i was put on prevacid which helped. everything was going ok for a couple of months. i had my life back. Then the prevacid began to give me violent heart palps. having a history of PVC's i knew this one wasnt the normal kind. my doctor said it was a side effect. and switched me to nexium. same thing. its almost as if the meds made my acid reflux worse. So i stopped taking them. Since then i now wake up with a tight chest, always fitgued, out of breath, nasty taste in back of mouth. im only a 21 yr old male that use to work out alot. my doc ( who is a very good doc. That im blessed to have) put me on a anxiety med and sent me to pulmonary doc .During a PFT i acutally was rushed to the ER because i experienced severe breating problems with anxiety after i was given a inhaler to use during the test. i ate spaghetti earlier tha morning. that actually was the problem. The doc in the ER gave me a peak flow and said that the breathing was normal and all my vitals where normal. and i was given anxiety meds. Sounds crazy but he was right the food was causing tight chest and a breathless sensation. I use the peak flow when i get a tight chest and always have great readings. its december and im feeling horrible again with extreme gerd, breathless, extreme burping and stoll sample test confirmed hpylori again. Im always tired, horrible chest pain and breathing that spikes my anxiety. i stopped the anxiety meds because i didnt take them 1 day and had horrible withdrawls. went cold turkey and that was horrible. Has anyone that has Hpylori and overame it? Anything wiil help thanks. Ive been to The ER countless times and im just sick and tired of feeling like crap. Anything helps thanks. Ive also noticed eating early and not late helps me sleep and less chest tightness in the moring. Any tips will help. thanks

Hi Kbently24,
Welcome!! :-) Here are some of my tips that have helped me.
Adding Garlic Odorless oil capsule , (I take 2 1000mg caps daily.) Studies have shown that it can zoom in on H pylori and act as an antibacterial.
Honey: is "Liquid gold" It also zooms right on in H Pylori. Try eating a table spoonful of honey one hour before meals and Bedtime to help soothe your discomfort.
Yogurt, tart berries ( cranberries, cherries,) Fiber, Occasional glass of red wine all may help in warding off H Pylorie.
Reference: EAT AND HEAL by Editors of FC&A Medical Publishing, 2002.
Hope this Helps.
Happy New year.
Anne :-)
