Hey everyone, I'm 22 years old and was extremely healthy for years. In January, I got diagnosed with H. pylori because I had been having a lot of nausea and indigestion, and got the triple therapy treatment from Jan-Feb. That got rid of the bacteria, and my nausea problems went away. I had this horrible fatiguing, though. Then March-April, I had a horrible sinus infection, and had to take things like more antibiotics, codeine cough syrup, and so on. After 3 weeks, it went away but in the middle of my treatment, I began having stomach issues and stool issues on and off.
After that was done, I noticed that I began having problems with gas and abdominal cramping. I also have this fatigue most days that plagues me, and headaches on and off. They all are probably related. I started taking Simethicone recently, and that helps a bit with the gas. During the past month or so, I've started to have a few diarrhea problems and often there was yellow in my stool. One day I had to poop 7 times in 20 hours, some diarrhea so I was wondering if I had IBS.
I went to the doctor and got tested for yeast, giardia, cholesterinum, thyroid, and celiac sprue, and all those came out negative. Before I had been diagnosed with the ulcer, I also had a little weight loss. I weigh about 98-100 lbs even now still, and haven't been able to gain any weight back which confuses me. My normal weight is about 109.
The doctors have suggested that I am having issues because I had so many antibiotics that depleted the good bacteria in my system, or that I have a bacteria infection. I started having yogurt (for pribiotics) about 1 1/2 weeks ago, and that seems to have helped with the diarrhea/yellow in stool. The main thing that is bothering me right now is the chronic fatigue and gas pains/cramps.
Would you guys have any idea what is going on with me,
