      I had it about 20 years ago and feel that i've got it again. My immunity system is picking up all colds and virus's, my stomach is full, other symptoms exactly like I remember and energy levels for running which I love doing is gone. Funny enough I can cycle but no running at all as after a mile or so I break out in awful sweating, running pace way down and find even that almost impossible so stopped running. Getting a whole lot of tests done from next week. Thanks for your answer and everyone else's as well.

    Hi royalty

    HPylori is a stomach bacteria that thrives in the gut and duodnum....it can be eradicated with 3 courses of antibiotic...it causes all the symptoms you describe except the arm and shoulder pain but have responded to you about them ...the tests are done via breath test....stool test or endoscopy or blood test....there is nothing whatsoever to be anxious about....do you know how your being tested?....

      Hi royalty

      The only advice i can give you is... if you go in for the endoscopy in a tensed up state your throat and neck will tighten and make it more difficult to get the camera down..I'm sure if you ask for something to relax you they will oblige...stop worrying and gettin anxious as this will make your stomach problems worse.....easy said than done i know.......you will be fine....best wished....keep us posted...m

      I have had several upper endoscophies over the years, the last one a month ago. They usually relax you and it really is nothing to be petrified about. It may be slightly uncomfortable but that is all. Please do not worry. Honestly it really isn’t bad at all as I said just uncomfortable. They anaesthetise your throat too. Good luck.
