Yes, I went ahead and re-posted "The Right Diagnosis" message to my previous discussion thread and would be happy to answer any questions concerning my H. Pylori symptoms, diagnosis and treatment.

The H. Pylori discussion thread you shared with me has comments from others who's suffered from this debilitating bacterial infection that sound all too familiar to me. The symptoms, diagnosis and treatments mentioned are 100% in-line with my 10-month journey through the depths of Hell.

Thank you for sharing Dr. Amy Oxentenko's H. Pylori video with me. I'll be sure to watch it carefully and take notes!

My treatment plan consists of the most popular first-line triple therapy which comes in brand name form known as PrevPac. I've got the generic version which offers a significant costs savings (i.e. <$10 vs. $1,000 for the PrevPac). The 14-day combo treatment regimen breakdown looks like this:

Amoxicillin 1,000mg x 2 per day (breakfast and dinner)
Clarithromycin (Biaxin) 500mg x 2 per day (breakfast and dinner)
Omeprazole (Prilosec) 40mg x 2 per day (breakfast and dinner)

The 3 medications should be taken concurrently and with a meal as the Clarithromycin is a real gut buster when taken on an empty stomach.

Kid Prodigy, I would be interested to know all your symptoms. I have been diagnosed with GERD and have come a long way since all this first started in May 2019. Been on Omeprazole 40 MG twice daily almost a year now. I still have chest heaviness and difficulty at getting that free breathing feeling and yes alot of times it is after eating but no always. I had a sinus infection 2 weeks ago and was given an antibiotic and I swear I almost felt normal again. But here we are 2 weeks later and feeling the same.
