Yes, test was performed during last three weeks (when I have already started on nexium).
I am not sure if this is relevant but I had my wisdoms out during this time and was put on antibiotics (unasym) which gave me diarrhoea for a few days. I was already having the bloating / burping symptoms when I had my wisdoms out. On day 2 of my antibiotics I was started on nexium after consultation with my GP so I was taking antibiotics AND nexium at the same time for about 3 or 4 days. Since then I have only been taking nexium and probiotics. I am not sure if the antibiotics could have made me worse.
I don't drink and hardly smoke, maybe one stick in a couple of weeks. I don't drink caffeine they upset my stomach. But I have been under constant stress and upset for the last year and do love spicy food and now my anxiety has come back.
My question is that I was told that false negatives is very common if someone undergoes the breath test whilst on nexium so I'm not sure if this is accurate.
With gallbladder issues, shouldn't there be other symptoms like pain? Also, what else should I look out for with pancreatic disease? Lipase levels from blood test is fine.
Is it possible that all these symptoms is only caused by anxiety?
Just some final questions:
1) Can I certainly rule out pancreatic issues if lipase levels were normal?
2) If it is indeed gastritis, how long can it last for? I have read that for some people it can last for months and years.
Thanks for your help Doctor.
Hi, sorry but I forgot to ask ... it this likely to be gynaecological?
