    h pylora (sp?)

    I've had a lot of abdominal pain for a few months now and my doctor has not been able to figure it out. And I've done just about every test out there to figure it out. I ran into my old doctor the other day she mentioned something called h pylora, or something like that. I don't remember exactly how she pronounced it so I may be spelling it completely wrong. But she said it's a bacteria that lives in the stomach and can cause the problems I'm having.

    So what is it and where can I get more information about it? I feel like I've been kicked up high in my belly.

      Here is some additional information. A culture should be used to confirm that you have this before treating it.
