Test for h Pylori, prone to ulcers, colonoscopy 2 years ago and all was fine. H Pylori test was negative

Did you get any treatment for this?

And are you saying the H pylori test was recent?

H Pylori was recent - last week
. Currently taking 40MG of Omerprazole, and something else (can't remember the name) to coat my stomach to help alleviate the nausea.I've also had a couple of times where my bowel movements were close to normal

This sounds like a case of irritable bowel syndrome then

That's annoying but not too serious

Were I your doctor I'd give you either Bentyl or Viberzi for it for about a month's time

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.
