Hi, can you please give me your opinion, I really appreciated. I developed this indigestion problems for about 3 weeks already. It is possible to be why. About 3 weeks ago, I have a friend who send me some dry salted fish from out of country. I DID NOT eat it, I open it and I saw the dry salted fish and I throw them away, DID NOT eat at all. Afterward, I did wash my hands with cold water. Somehow after that day, I developed indigestion problems, symptoms like feeling fullness, when ever I eat, I got really bad upper stomach pain, feeling nausea (without throw up). Symptoms like people have Indigestion. I know that Helicobacter Pylori exist in fish, so it is possible for me to get that bacteria into my stomach from just touching it? Without eating the actual fish itself? I sort of ask my family doctor about this and he saids the chances are not big because I DID NOT eat it, touching it is not a very high chance for it to get to my system. My family doctor said I have some gas stomach, indigestion problems. But this symptoms does not goes away, it seem like it getting worse. I want to go to the hospital to have my stomach pictures taken, but I really can't since I don't have health insurance, I am an college student. Any advice would be helpful, thank you for reading.
