Hey guys, so thanks all for the advice in my last blog post. I wanted to give you guys an update


3 weeks ago, my symptoms had gotten REALLY bad. I had pressure all over the chest, along with pressure in throat, constant bloating, lost appetite, chest pains, anxiety at night, difficulty sleeping, acidic taste in mouth, it was horrible.

My family doctor had also prescribed me Ativan, which does help and allow me to sleep, but i want to avoid taking too much of this shit, i know it can be really addictive.
He also gave me antidepressant for my anxiety, but it had no real effect yet.

So i went to see a new doc, which said its anxiety+reflux. Anxiety making reflux worst, and reflux making anxiety worst. So he doubled my anti-acid. It actually did reduce my symptoms a lot, but i wasn't cured, and the pharmacist said its really weird i need this much anti-acid with my diet/age.

4 days later, i saw an ostopath, which said there was really something physically stuck, and she said she "cured a lot of things in my body". She did seem to do something, and i did feel good for like a week.

I also started seeing a psychologist, but we cant find the reason for my anxiety. She even sent by e mail lots of information about anxiety, but i really don't see myself in this thing. All the things they say about people who have generalized anxiety disorders are things which are the polar opposite of me, except for a few things. For example, they say people with GAD are perfectionnist... im the opposite of that.

As i said in my last blog post, so far, i must have seen like 10 docs, all of them said its anxiety, which never made sense to me. But one doc, a cardiologist, said i don't look like an anxious person, and said i have H pylori. That sounded weird to me, but i asked my Family doctor to test me for it. He told me hes pretty sure it had nothing to do with my symptoms but accepted to test me for it since a cardiologist advised it....
So 1 week ago, i saw my resutlts.... POSITIVE. i was like omg.

Yesterday i saw my doc. He still insisted its anxiety, doubled my anxiety meds, but did give me antibiotics for the H pylori.

I read some on the web, and H pylori symptoms is pretty much all the symptoms ive been having. H pylori also often cause anxiety....

So i think this is whats been giving me all those troubles for 6 months, and if i didnt insist on seeing so many doctors, i would still be stuck with it...

I probably did devellop some anxiety because of it tho.

I can't be sure if this is true or not for you but I will share my experience with chronic condition. It's very easy to become very frustrated at being trapped into a problem and convince yourself there is a miracle cure out there which will turn things back to the way they were. I wiki'ed the bacteria and it seems like one of those murky things that any ailment can be pinned on. It sounds like you shopped around until someone with a medical degree told you what you wanted to hear.

id be more worried about the H pylori than the anxiety
if left untreated it can lead to stomach cancer and other complications

Well, i DO have h pylori, there is no doubt about it, the test came back positive.

However, you are right its possible it is not the reason for all of my problems.

I agree man, im so glad i saw this cardiologist, cuz my doc was never going to suggest this test, and other docs were even worst (they refused to let me pass the test even tho i said another doc told me i might have that).

I think the untreated H pylori caused me some anxiety and they just went "its all in your head" and gave me anxiety pills... if i didnt see this cardiologist, i might have been stuck with this h pylori thing until it got really really bad.

The body is a strange machine. Many things are related through a chain. If one thing up the chain goes wrong, something down the chain can be effected and you'd have no idea what started it. Without sounding too crazy, I urge you to seek general wellness and ignore the anxiety. Let your body fight it off by itself. Just use your logical mind to remind yourself who you are, what you're doing, why you're safe, etc. I'd also recommend checking out your diet, sleep levels, water intake, and your brain function. How in control of your brain are you? That might sound stupid but imho, a lot of the times, you're experiencing phantom pain. If there's no basis behind why you're experiencing it, then it's purely psychological. Use your brain to turn it off.

Well i think right now i have logical reasons for this pain

It got WAY BETTER after doubling the anti acid, and the test for H pylori came positive, so it makes sense to me it is the problem.

but yea your advice is good regardless.

You gotta say to the virus or infection, "Bitch you ain't shiet."

Strive to live well, it's just a simple speed bump.

For me baking soda works a lot better than reflux medication. It alters the ph levels for better so that the acid wont burn no more. I put one teaspoon to a glass of water and enjoy. It tastes horrible...

If the problem persists consider looking at your thyroid. Specifically: TSH, free T3, free T4, reverse T3 and thyroid antibodies. Don't settle for just a TSH test, each of those 5 tests are vitally important to fully understand if anything is going on.

Symptoms
The symptoms of hyperthyroidism include the following:

Fatigue or muscle weakness
Hand tremors
Mood swings
Nervousness or anxiety
Rapid heartbeat
Heart palpitations or irregular heartbeat
Skin dryness
Trouble sleeping
Weight loss
Increased frequency of bowel movements
Light periods or skipping periods

If you do end up testing that and you're hyperthyroid, look at ALL your options before destroying your thyroid.

Did you tried a Magnesium supplement? Its good for acidity and nerve conduction (hence, better nerve performance). That may alleviate some symptomes while you're looking for other causes. Maybe the bacteria AND other causes are giving you that symptoms.
