My symptoms started 12 ( years ago as a chronic diarrhea. The diarrhea became worst with time to the point that I used to get it right after eating. The smell was very bad from my stools.
With time I started having chronic burping, acid reflux, bloating, diarrhea. In 2009 I had the first eposide of heart palpitations. I saw a doctor who said that my heart was fine ( it was like my heart jumped).
in 2010 I moved from Quebec to Toronto and I saw another doctor for the same issue ( heart palpitation that concerned me the mostt). He said that I have GERD. He tested me for H.pylori by blood and it came +. He prescribed for me HPAC for one week. The treatment helped me while on it but as soon as I stopped it I got all the symptoms back.
A GI specialist did an endoscopy and found no h.pylori.
Unformed stools. Diarrhea.
dyspepsia ( acid reflux, chronic burping, bloating, flatulence)
Ringing in the right ear.
Joint pain ( left knee)
Treatments I tried:
HPAC contains: Amoxocillin, Clarythromycine and Lansoprazole ( PPI but I found out that it has some antiprotozoal activity).
Mastic gum ( Did nothing)
Caprylic acid ( helped me but the bug became resistant to it).
Monolaurin ( helps a bit).
Sweet annie helps a lot during the first treatment. I got all my energy back and I became happier but after two weeks the bug came back and it became resistant to it also.
I tried Flagyl but unfortunately for 1 week. It helped me but I think the treatment was not strong enough to kill the bug anyway ( My doctor didn't want me to take high dosage).
I'm willing to try the combo : Clarythromycine, Tinidazole and cipro for 4 weeks.
Also I'm willing to try the badbugs combo.
