Hello and thanks for reading my question
I have a dx of dyspepsia and acid reflux. I had an endoscopy and was Neg. for h pylori but they did see I had duodenal ulcers. I have 3 questions
1. could have the endoscopy biopsy missed the h pylori?
2 what causes the duodenal ulcers ? I KNOW I was not taking any aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen sodium (NSAIDs)
3 should I be retested for h pylori? if so what is the best test? blood, breath or stool?
I have been suffering with stomach pains for 2 years now PPIs don't seem to help ( in fact make things worse) I have been to 3 different gastroenterologist and no ones seems like they can help
