Hi! I made a thread a while ago about some of the problems I was having and in the end it turned out that I had H. Pylori. So, I was prescribed a Prevpac 2 week treatment that I actually put off taking until about mid-November because I had been in the process of moving at the time.
It was a pretty big move, I live in a totally different area than I lived before, so things are different here. After about a week of living here, I ended up getting what I think was the stomach flu, because I had bad diarrhea for a full week.
Once that cleared up, I took the medicine and things seemed pretty good. I felt mostly good while I was taking it, and afterwards I felt like I might actually be getting better! But that was about 3 weeks ago, and now I've been slowly feeling really bad again.
I keep getting bouts of diarrhea, nausea, and I have acid reflux almost every day. I haven't had a chance to see if the H. Pylori was killed off by the medicine because I haven't found a new doctor yet, but that's one of my goals for this upcoming week.
Since I finished the Prevpac, I've been taking 2 doses of Prevacid and I've also been taking probiotics. I was taking the probiotics the entire time I was on the Prevpac also.
I haven't been able to figure out if all this new sickness is just me still adjusting to the move, or a side effect from the medicine I took, or maybe it's still just symptoms of H. Pylori. Part of me wonders if it's all just a result of bad anxiety too. I'm not really sure what to do at this point beside see a doctor again, but I wondered if anyone else had this issue after they were diagnosed with H. Pylori.
