Iam glad that I found this forum, kudos to the creators and experts helping people deal with H pylori.
I got tested +ve for H pylor in Oct'20. My symptoms include:
- Pain in the middle part of the chest
Feeling of stomach fullness
Colonoscopy results came back normal -ve for IBD. However upper endoscopy result was "STOMACH, ANTRUM, BIOPSY --- ACTIVE NONATROPHIC CHRONIC GASTRITIS WITH MODERATE ATROPHY, NO INTESTINAL METAPLASIA OR DYSPLASIA. HELICOBACTER PYLORI ARE NOT SEEN"
Post the endoscopy, I started the Omiz+ 40mg for one month and then reduced to Omeprazole 20mg for another month. My main concern of diarrhea was stopped but I started having bright yellow colored urine, ringing ears, sleep problems, muscle twitching, jolts while trying to sleep.
After I stopped the PPIs, I again had soft stools (~4 times a day) intermittently. Its a month and half I stopped PPIs and I still have soft stools on average 3 to 4 times a day and bright yellow colored urine.
I could not understand what could the reason be, I consulted kidney specialist and did various urine exams, and everything came normal.
Can H Pylori will be in the system even when the biopsy result came negative? Can it cause soft stools (yellow coloured) and bright yellow urine?
