Look I am no doctor but i reckon you need to get rid of heliobactor pylori. I have had this some years ago....and being a paramedic i read up on everything..i have some pretty cool books. Ok as far as i remember H-Pylori is a bacteria and it causes problems, I kept gettin ulcers and reflux etc which ongoing for a long duration is not good. Treatment is 1 week of Drugs!!! I think 1 drug is an antibiotic and another is a proton pump inhibitor like Nexium or Zoton etc cant remember other. I was ok with it but mixing the 3 can give some people a bit of trouble, but it's worth it. Also a word of advice after the course/treatment make sure to ask the Doc how long after treatment to get rechecked if its gone.....heaps of doctors don't do this (give course and say goodbye) ask to be rechecked as treatment not always successful(but is most of the time) But ask to have the breath test done....this is more accurate than bloods. If i think of anything else i will post again. Take Care.
