Hello everybody ! My stomach was fine, but in 2017 I got sick from something. I had high temperature and abdominal pain around the belly button. Only this . I lay on the bed for about a month.I have never been ill for so long in my life. After this my stomach is not the same anymore... I wonder what my case can be? So maybe I got infected from some kind of virus that destroy my stomach. Another thing that I discover that as possibility is helicobacter pilory . I did a test for this in a lab in Bulgaria ( I am bulgarian sorry for my poor english ) The blood test was positive for H.Pilory but fecal test was negative so I do not get antibiotics. My doctor said to me that is possible at some point of my life my body to met this bacteria and make antibodies that this test detect ...and because my fecal test is negative I am probably OK...
My symptoms - When hungry I have gas and I burp. When I eat chocolate and sweets I have gases as well and burp .Salty popcorn also are not good horrible gas from them as well. Coffie also doing the things worse.
The zone that I feel is a problem is circle maybe 5-6 inches around the belly button not down where the guts are. The same zone that hurt me when I was sick from this unknown thing in 2017.
I am 34 years old male . 183 centimeters 78 kg weight In good shape.
Please help ! What I should do ?
Thanks a lot !!!

mashaAllah your weight is good. it looks like you are less active. do brisk walk. daily run/walk fast only 25 minutes and you will loose more than 172 calories easily! your gas problem will lessen in 1st week and then end in 2nd week. but this end would be temporary. to end it permanently, walk this way for at least 3 months.
Thanks I will try
First of all stop eating the food that is causing the problem you are probably feeding the bacteria and it's having a party in your gut. Second, eat more bland foods not too much veggies such as cabbage sprouts fermented veg. Bacteria love sugary foods like sweets and chocolate. You have to change your diet because the bacteria may have caused gastritis in your gut. Go online and look for a diet that will help gastritis.....
Also start taking probiotics and put good bacteria into your gut...
Thank you !
I know you probably would have by now, but take multiple opinions from different doctors. I have read in some places that probiotics help a lot with abdominal issues. Ask your doctor if you can start taking those supplements. I would recommend a bran with low amounts of sugar and that has a high CFU count. You should also start improving your diet and get more active. A healthy lifestyle also has a long way to go in preventing and curing medical problems.
Thanks a lot. I star to cycling . Seems to help. Maybe the oxygen kills the bacteria. I am even thinking to get antibiotics. Do you think this is a good idea ?
You almost certainly have h pylori and need to be treated with a combination of 2 types if antibiotics and esomeprazole. Get a second opinion, if you were taking ppis when you had an h pylori test you could get a false negative. If you leave h pylori untreated you can get a lot more problems later on in life. Please get seen by someone else.
I will do that and go for another test in better lab. Thanks a lot !
Progress report ! I haven't taken any medication yet. I take a probiotic and am physically active. Physical activity and air seem to have a beneficial effect on bacteria, but do not completely cure it. At least in my case. Stress makes things worse, if I don't go to work my stomach is almost completely fine. As much as I don't want to, I will have to stop coffee. If that doesn't help, I'll take antibiotics. I'm worried it could get cancer over time. Is there a chance that I will take antibiotics and not be cured? Have any of the writers here overcome Helicobacter pylori?
