Some individuals have proclaimed problems with daily heartburn symptoms, possible GERD after experiencing H Pylori. I on the other end, was dx w/GERD, approx 2000, but had bouts with heartburn for many, many yrs...
I began having alot of what appeared reflux problems in spite of meds about
a yr ago. An endoscopy was done and I was dx w/H pylori and given antibiotics like you. At this time, doc was not even able to tell me if I truly had GERD because of the scar tissue attributed from med intake over the yrs. Doc indicated if reflux symptoms re-appear, just treat it like GERD and continue to take meds. Well, I got better iniitally afterwards, but some daily symptoms started to persist once again.
I now take 40mg of prolisec @ d, which provides a lot of relief, but I still need to watch everything I eat & drink.
So, sometimes docs are actually clueless with these GI problems. I'm not sure if there's anything you can do to avoid H Pylori, but, you could do some things to diminish symptoms of reflux;food intake, exercise, & water intake are healthful for some. Get a referral if needed for GI doc and ask questions and express your concerns.
Hope you get some answers soon.
