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!

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
can the reflux be causing the gastritis
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Maybe reflux from liver?
Customer reply replied 2 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 2 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 2 months ago
Is that why nexium won't fully heal it?

Yes it can

And Nexium alone won't treat it

Okay I'll go get antibiotics
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
you think it could really be it? How long to recover from h pylori?
Customer reply replied 2 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 2 months ago
I haven't had antibiotics in years so I should be fine
Customer reply replied 2 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 2 months ago
Doctor said she wants me to do bloods first then will send script to pharmacy
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
She said bloods will show antibodies regardless of nexium
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
She also mentioned she wanted to check for gallstones as they can give the loose stools and gastritis symptoms
Customer reply replied 2 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 2 months ago
Well I hope you are right!
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
What about the bloods?
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Frustrated I couldn't just get the antibiotics

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