Customer reply replied 7 months ago
It's been about a good month it's been getting worse and just a little nausea and also deep breaths hurt
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

Having lasted that long it isn't likely a viral gastroenteritis

It sounds like an H pylori bacterial stomach infection

You can try oral probiotics and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water twice a day for now

But you should have your doctor check it out with an H pylori stool screening since if it's positive you'll need a course of oral antibiotics and a couple of weeks of Nexium to eradicate it

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.
