After having gastro over New Years, my doctor had diagnosed me with GERD this March. My symptoms included daily nausea, stomach cramping, irregular bowel movements, motion sickness and a genetic history of GERD. I was give 20mg of Omeprazole to try. Since being on the meds I have noticed a reduction in the daily nausea and upset stomach but have also noticed a lack of appetite, feeling full quickly & uncomfortable bloating, burning in my stomach, and also a weird gagging sensation. accompanied by a bad taste in my mouth. A quick google search indicates that I may have H. Pylori. I don't want to bother my doctor especially during this time so would be good if I can get some advice on whether it is worth going back to my doctor and asking for a H. Pylori test? Or alternatively could a different PPI help?
