I have H Pylori - The first antibiotic therapy was ended shortly after I developed major side effects from the medications. Now im on Prevacid PPI 30mg once daily for a month to heal my stomach until I can start a new round of antibiotics. If I don't take the Prevacid I have mild achey pains under my right rib and upper back, so Im suspecting gastritis is causing this? I never feel nauseated or vomit and my bowel movements are pretty normal. I never wake up in the middle of the night with classic ulcer symptoms.
I know an endoscopy would reveal the real cause of my pain - but curious if ulcer pains are similar to that of gastritis or different?
