    Hi nanonug,

    It wasn't in my case. My labs and breath test for many years for h pylori were negative till Oct / nov 2011 when I until I actually caught it. It can definitely make us worse tho. It made my oi so bad I could barely stand up without my heart racing. Of course it did a number on my digestion too.

    I finished treating this in jan 2012 and my metametix labs as of march 2012, are negative again. : ) All of my h pylori symptoms, gastroparesis, gerd, nausea, extreme oi, were eliminated via 1 treatment regime. Kow ..

    Good to know!

    H. pylori is a very nasty bug as the study above shows, for example. What you should be on the lookout, though, is that it may return very easily. On top of that, it is quite common for people infected with H. pylori to end up with bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine.

    The bismuth in pepto bismal helps kill this too. I really need to look into bismuth further. If I remember correctly its some type of mineral.

    I was really really sick with h pylori and needing a nausea med when I found that pepto treats nausea and kills h pylori. I took it for a few days non stop until a freind of mine told me that room temp lemon water would work as well. It actually worked better for me ..

    My tongue, the inside of my mouth and any kind of film I had on my teeth turned black for about 2 weeks while I was treating this. This can happen with pepto b but it lasted much longer than the time I took the pepto.

    I also had new pits in my teeth from all of this. My front teeth too so you can imagine my horror. lol .. It took me several weeks to get rid of the after effects on my teeth. I had to stop using Toms tp with xylitol, scrub my teeth and tongue with a little baking soda to get rid of the film and now I'm using Crest tartar control but sparingly since it burns sometimes.

    THis article mirrors what I was told.

    PS. The symptoms of H pylori I listed were new and different from what I've seen with my ME/CFS.
