I have had problems now for about 5 years. It first started with being tested positive for h pylori. I was given double course anti-biotics but everytime it would return. After a few years and countless prescriptions I decided to do my own research as I was convinced the antibiotics were doing more harm than good. I found out liquorice root killed the infection with a tablet called Carnosoothe. I kept taking my Omeprazole and yoghurt drinks but still the inflammation was really bad. I cut out spicy foods and tried a blander diet especially not eating near bed time. I like my alcohol which is obviously the worst thing for it so I've cut it right down. I had endoscopy and stool sample done recently and it came back negative. Unfortunately I still feel awful and sleeping is a struggle. I sleep more upright than ever but I only ever get an hour or so without waking and when I do sleep it's from utter exhaustion. I have pain in upper/lower stomach, oesophagus, sore throat, bad breath, fatigue,nausea, sore heads etc. It really is depressing and wish I could get over this somehow. It's taken a toll on my relationship as I'm constantly complaining and miserable never mind the worry if it's something more serious. I have a stomach scan next week and hope I can get some help and possibly help others on here. If anyone has any ideas to help please do it would be more than grateful.
