Hi. I had an alarming choking incident three months ago and thankfully was OK but the diagnosis was that it was a bacterial stomach infection (h pylori) that had led to this. I was prescribed two lots of antibiotics for two weeks then a four-week course of Omeprazole. Things seemed to be fine though I was still having mild stomach pains and signs of stomach acid. I started taking Omeprazole again but stopped after one week as it seems to be causing flatulence and bloating, so much so that I have to take Deflatine (non-subscription) to ease the bloating and it does work. So was I right in my assumption that Omeprazole caused this? It is only two days in since I stopped taking it but I'm hoping that things will improve.
Any comments would be welcome.
