Hope you are well thanks for quick reply. Gastritis is back, now it's feels like I only get 2 good days followed by one bad. Symptoms this morning are growling/gurgling stomach though my chest feels tight and I feel like I want to burp but can't. I've had loose stools and I feel like I've got reflux. I was laying on couch last night feeling great though I may have laid down too early before meal digested. Could acid reflux cause the gastritis? I'm trying to do everything right and take my nexium. I was very stressed yesterday afternoon. No idea what else it could be. Thanks!

No not yet
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I haven't been able to get off nexium

Bile reflux?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
can the reflux be causing the gastritis
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Maybe reflux from liver?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Should I go to doctors and say I can't get off the nexium cause of gastritis can I take antibiotics and nexium for a few weeks and see how I go?

Bile reflux only occurs with a peptic ulcer sometimes

But at this point, yes--ask your doctor to give you the antibiotics since I think you definitely have the H pylori infection

Really? I hope it's just that. So symptoms sound very much like that? If I have it will my son have it?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I feel better when I eat and sometimes it goes for 1-2 days and returns. Does that still sound like it?

No your son won't have it but why does it worry you?

Can h pylori cause my loose stools as well?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Is that why nexium won't fully heal it?

Yes it can

And Nexium alone won't treat it

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Okay I'll go get antibiotics
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
you think it could really be it? How long to recover from h pylori?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Any reason why it goes for a day or two and comes back

Takes about two weeks of the antibiotics and yes I definitely think it's H pylori

Thanks I'll drop in and ask for antibiotics hopefully they allow me to get them without test as I don't want to have a week off nexium
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I haven't had antibiotics in years so I should be fine
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
How long should I take nexium for after completing antibiotics?

For two weeks after you complete the antibiotics

How long after taking antibiotics should I see results? Relief of symptoms?

Two weeks after starting them

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Doctor said she wants me to do bloods first then will send script to pharmacy
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
She said bloods will show antibodies regardless of nexium
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
She also mentioned she wanted to check for gallstones as they can give the loose stools and gastritis symptoms
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
What do you think?

That's definitely one way to go with it

But what you've told me simply doesn't match a gallbladder/gallstone problem

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Well I hope you are right!
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
What about the bloods?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Frustrated I couldn't just get the antibiotics

Potentially that will detect the antibodies but the stool sample is more accurate

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
