    Hey branden, h pylori can cause irritation which may take a few months to heal, even after the bacteria is eliminated from your system. Also, are you taking any antacids like zantac or a PPI like prilosec? Sounds like your esophagus may be irritated as well if the pain is up into your chest. How long did you have the h pylori and was it causing you any heartburn or stomach pain/spasms?

      I didn't know I had the h pylori until after my endoscopy biopsy results which was around June 10 I've taken four different kinds of acid reflux medicine omeparazole  protonix  ranitidine and one other made me dizzy and nauseated never had heartburn or stomach pains before all of this like I said the pain is mainly in my stomach below the sternum and it's constant all the time sometimes worse when I eat and it radiates up left chest sharp pain all the way up left chest to the nipple area

      Have you been checked for an ulcer? You did have h pylori so it's a possibility. Pain in the area you are describing are symptoms.
