I am a 42 year old male with bad stomach problems for the last 10 years or so.
Pain near entrance of stomach
Bad Acid Reflux (must take nexium(or equivalent) daily to control it, god help me if I miss a day.
Bloating and fullness
Digestion problems constantly
Recently Bad chest pains
Over the years, I have had every test possible and 3 endoscopies and all test revealed nothing. All positive results!!! They never found the h-Pylori infection or any uclers.
Today my GP finally gave in and prescribed me a HPAC which I assume is the same as a Prevpac treatment for the h-pylori infection even if I tested negative as he feels I have all the symptoms and previous tests maybe have been falsified by my many years of taking such medication as Nexium.
I trust my GP, but feel reluctant in taking the treatment.
Have anyone ever tested negative and done the treatment anyway and it has helped them?
Thank-you for all responses…
