Tested negative for H.Pylori was still given the prev pack antibiotic treatment

Posted , 5 users are following.

I've been out of work because on the pain I'm feeling in my upper abdomen. It hurts to even take deep breaths because the expansion of my stomach feels so tight it's gonna tear. I can barely stand or walk without being hunched over.

I went to the Dr, told him my symptoms. He pressed my stomach did a blood test (finger poke) came back and said I was negative but had symptoms of H.Pylori. He prescribed the antibiotics which I couldn't take one of them (metronidazole-flagyl) because those gave me horrible panic attacks followed by light felt seizures. So I took the other 2 Amoxicillin and Cimetidine. I'm more than positive it was Amoxicillin that made my arms tingly and numb so I went to the pharmacist and told him my symptoms and he said that shouldn't happen and to stop taking them right away.

I'm now in a lot of pain and just don't know what to do. The ER won't do anything because I've already been there. Also, I have no insurance.

Is there any natural cures out there? Should I even be on this treatment even if I was tested negative but with symptoms? I need help

P.S I've done so much research and most people who take the treatment said it was back within months.

Please anything will help.

Thank you!

    I had also been suffering with the same symptoms as you for 3 whole years. The doctors gave me every single medication and tried all sorts of tests, but no results.

    I tried so many herbal remedies and nothing worked. However, around 5 months ago I started taking pomegranate peel powder and this has saved my life (took about a week to notice a difference). I stopped all my medication and now I feel great.
