I pray that those who are suffering may find relief. Here is my story please help me diagnose what it could be.
So I went to doc few months ago for a routine checkup, I did not have any pain or any other symptoms of, but doc ordered H.pylori test and it came positive. He prescribed tripple therapy for 7 days. Now I dont take medicines at all I eat healthy and was physically fit but upon reading that hpylori can cause cancer and stuff I decided to give tripple therapy a go. 2nd day of my treatment I developed strong upper stomach pain and severe bloating, I went to doc and told him that I am in unbearable pain because of the meds he simply told me it would be better if you could complete the 7 day course so I gained all my strength and completed 7 days course, I felt like I was dying during the course the pain was unbearable.
It has been 3 months or more since I took my last dose of tripple therapy, I completed the course but hpylori was not eradicated, instead I am left with this severe pain. Its unbearable, following is the condition I am suffering from:
Severe upper stomach pain its more focused on left side under ribcage, its always there unbearable pain but moves towards back but sometimes its so painful I feel like I am going to die. I am a guy and strong but this pain is unbearable, I have lost my appetite, My bowel movements are ok, I dont feel burning or acid reflux well ocassionaly maybe when the pain gets really unbearable I may feel some acid reflux. Slight nausea as well. Stomach feel sore and feels like upper stomach wall is bruised. I was always a healthy eater I dont eat junk food and I dont drink, smoke or do drugs not even meds.
I am not sure what it is but during the day or sometimes at night it gets so painful that I feel like I am going to die. And even slight physical activity like tightening a nut aggravates it so much that my upper stomach feels shredded and stiff painful stomach wall can be felt when moving. I am not doing anything from the past 3 months I just either sit or lie on bed or walk in the home. I have lost my strength because of eating so less and because of bearing the pain it makes you exhausted.
My ultrasound, lipase, amylase, iron levels,complete blood picture/count, lfts, rfts, c reactive protein, stool test (blood/mucus and other major intestinal bugs) all came back clear. I want to avoid doing endoscopy for obvious reason, plus the pain I am suffering from added to my fear of not doing endoscopy.
- Based on my symptoms what do you people think it is? Its almost like pancreatitis, could it be gastritis, ulcer, hernia or something else. Remember I am suffering from this pain only after tripple therapy (Esomeprazole, Clarithromycin, Clarithromycin).
- I am thinking about using natural remedies (Mastic Gum), I tried nexium yesterday and it aggravated the pain so I think I have become allergic to to esomeprazole.
- Does Mastic Gum help in Ulcer healing and Gastritis?
- Can Gastritis or Ulcer cause severe pain only, without any burning?
