Welcome to Healing Well! Sorry to hear your struggling with so many GI issues. I know it's frustrating and hard to be patient while things heal.
It does sound as if your gastritis/H-pylori have started a vicious circle that has your body in a downward spiral. I react very badly to antibiotics, and can easily get gastritis from them. Prior to my Nissen surgery, that gastritis would result in increased reflux, and painful esophagitis.
Did you take a medication that you swish in your mouth for your thrush? Having been on antibiotics, it really sounds as if that's the primary cause. There is a condition called "Burning Mouth Syndrome". I'm not saying that's what you're dealing with, but it certainly sounds as if it is what you're dealing with. Here's a link to some information:www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/burning-mouth-syndrome/basics/causes/con-20029596
I would not think the PPI is what's creating your problem. I understand your frustration, and the reason you're questioning it. Have you been back to your PCP to report on your continued discomfort? That would definitely be a good move...get some guidance and help with this.
Wish I could be more help! I do know one thing from my own experiences with healing gastritis and esophagitis...it requires lots of patience. I don't know why, but GI healing is very slow.
Hang in there!Best wishes,
