Topics I've Started

H- Pylori

04 July 2014 - 10:00 PM

H-pylori question: Due to persistent and worsening abdominal throbbing, I had an endoscopy done three weeks ago, even though have been gluten-free for several months. Multiple biopsies were taken in the duodenum (upper small intestine), and one or two in the stomach.

No evidence of celiac disease was found in the intestine, and the villous: crypt length ratio was normal. Perhaps the C.D. was caught early before it progressed too far, and I healed quickly. At any rate, celiac disease not the direct source of my current stomach throbbing.

The stomach biopsy found helicobacter pylori-associated chronic gastritis, likely the cause of the throbbing. Today my doctor prescribed me dual antibiotics (clarithromycin and amoxcillin) for one week, and a proton pump inhibitor (acid reduction) for eight weeks.

Wondering: anybody else have problems with h-pylori c/w gastritis, and how was it treated? Did it take care of the problem? Thanks in advance.

Tendonitis ?

Six months ago I had to quit playing classical guitar due to tendonitis in finger, wrist and forearm on my strumming hand. Before long, desk work and using a computer were aggravating it even though I'd quit the guitar.

Coincidentally (or not), I felt really lousy in general last year, had the docs run some tests in Dcember, and just after New Year's was diagnosed celiac. Since going gluten-free have noticed the wrist is a lot better but I stilll can't pick up the guitar without the tendonitis flaring up.

Has anyone else had tendonitis issues prior to celiac diagnosis? Did your condition imrpive as your antibody level declined off and body healed?

I'm hoping that as I heal the tendonitis will go away....really miss playing guitar. I realize it's possible the celiac disease and tendonitis are not related, just found their timing rather coincidental.
