i have been having severe panic attacks for several months now. i'm also having severe stomach pain. When i try to sleep(don't anymore) it feels like food is stuck in my throat. i also had a burning sensation in my throat for a while too. I went and had a physical 3 weeks ago and they took a stool sample. The doctor went on vacation so the nurse informed me i had some kind of stomach infection and that the doctor did not prescribe antibiotics. Don't understand why. She refused to be specific, so i have no idea exactly what it is. It's extremely painful and i cannot materialize any more money to see a compitent doctor. I am worried that it's h.pylori. I am allergic to all but one antibiotic known to man. I read that this can be deadly. Is this so? Also my stomach ( above the navel) was throbbing about an inch+ out of my stomach after mowing my lawn(this happened about 3 months ago). If i have h. pylori is there ANY treatment? Also, NEVER had panic attacks until a couple of months ago. I also work with food, should i worry about being contagious? If it's a different kind of infection, will it heal itself or cause internal damage? Also have been losing eyelashes and eyebrow hair( dunno if it's stress related) and cannot gain weight. Any help on this matter would be fantastic. I can't deal with this anymore...
