Please I need your help!
Two months ago I was tested positive for H. Pylori however I have never experienced any pain or stomach discomfort in my life. My doctor (I am from the easter european country) insisted that I do an endoscopy. I was convinced that it is very safe procedure and I agreed. However the same day after the upper endoscopy was performed I started to experience stomach burning, pain and heartburn/chest pain. So bad that I had to go to emergency. Endoscopy showed a chronic gastritis and duodenitis. However my GI doctor did not think I need antibiotics since the gastritis was mild. I was taking PPI for 3-4 weeks but my symptoms were getting worse with no imrpovement, stomach pain was getting stabby and unbearable and it started to hurt a lot on the right side under ribs. It also feels like something is swallen under right ribs and makes popping sound (ultrasound did not show anything). After PPI were not helping much I was put on Sucralfate (also called Carafate) and it helped a bit. Now it is been 2 months, I am back in Canada where I am residing permanently and doctors here have no idea what is going on. They sent me to redo the H.Pylori test and another theory they have is a bile reflux. I am really scared because for over 2 months I have not had a day without pain even on the better days, I eat very special diet and I lost some weight because I could not eat enough and underweight. I saw 3 GI doctors (one in Russia and 2 in Canada) and they all say that they have never seen a case like me... to get problems after endoscopy... so I can not get a certain diagnose from them. I am wondering if anyone had similar problem or have any idea about it... not sure what to do anymore and where to get any help
