Does H Pylori Cause Pain
Yes, it can.: H. Pylori is a type of bacteria that likes to grow on the inside of the stomach. This bacteria causes irritation of the stomach wall lining. The body tries to heal, but a vicious cycle of irritation and healing gets started. Over time, the regenerating stomach lining cells become disorganized in their growth which can (not always) lead to cancer growth. H. Pylori therapy can reduce cancer risk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not common: The origin of most stomach cancers seen today are near upper cardio esophageal site. The h pylori is needed since the gastritis and resulting ulcer are healed from bone marrow stem cells migrating to ulcer site. The h pylori toxin induces malignant transformation.

Probably not: Globus sensation can be caused by several different possibilities. Gastroesophageal reflux is a common cause , however, h pylori gastritis is not. I would treat the gerd aggressively and see if the globus sensation improves. I recommend that patients undergo an egd (stomach scope) to rule out any underlying conditions such as a peptic ulcer, esophagitis or hiatal hernia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is h. Pylori deadly or just causes ulcers? Can someone get fever, chills, aches, like the flu, from an h. Pylori infection?
Probably: Both anxiety and gastritis can cause gas. Anxiety attacks can lead to accidental swallowing of air from hyperventilation. That air has no where to go but down and can becomes flatulence. Gastritis can cause gas if the cause of the gastritis produces gas. Certain bacteria produce gas as an effect of their normal metabolism. If they are the source of the gastritis then they too can cause flatulence. ...Read more
Yes, unsure stat: Chronic h. Pylori infection/gastritis can cause a type of gastric tumor called malt--mucosa associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma, but the incidence is not known. Long term gastritis by other causes also increase risk of gastric cancer, just as in folks with chronic reflux causing esophagitis/barrett's esophagus etc.. Which increases cancer risks. So, follow up with doc regularly. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Diahrrhoea is a phenomenon related to the presence of liquid stool in the small intestine. As the liquid passes the terminal ileum and cecum most of the liquid is readsorbed so that the partially liquefied stool in the ascending colon converts to solid stool as it reaches the transverse and left colon where all fluid should be removed. If the water is not resorbed diarrhea forms. ...Read more
Maybe (not) . . .: Everyone now agrees that h pylori is responsible for peptic ulcer disease, including gastric & duodenal ulcers. However, it's not clear that h pylori is responsible for gerd & esophagitis. However, esophagitis is associated w/pud so if we find h pylori, then we tend to treat if you/re symptomatic. The trick in medicine is paying attention to cause & effect studies vs observational ones. It's tough. ...Read more
What can cause 10+ mos chronic abdominal pain? Blood tests, barium swallow, gastroscopy, gallbladder all normal. No h. pylori. No diarrhea or vomiting
Several ideas: When a patient has persistent abdominal pain despite negative tests it suggests that either the patient has a less common condition that hasn't been considered or tested for OR that the symptoms aren't due to a physical illness. It is not unusual for patients to experience actual pain in various parts of their bodies from psychological causes. When the mind is treated the pain goes away. ...Read more
