Hello doctor,

It has been more than a month. The problem started with gastric issues in my stomach. Then it started with some stomach irritation and cramps. And then gradually I felt like whenever I ate something I feel like going to toilet. I reported it to my GP and she said to take Pantaprazole which I took for two weeks but then the situation was not improving and I insisted then she wrote a stool test for me and in the report helicobacter antigen bacteria was detected. She then prescribed medicine Amoxicillin 1000 mg, Pantoprazole 40 mg, Clarithromycin 500 mg which I took for one week.

On the fifth day I felt like my body has no energy at all. Anyhow, I took the entire 7 days dose. Now it has been close to two weeks after completing the antibiotics, but even today I feel unbearable weakness in the morning after toilet. The weakness is so much that I lie down and the body starts shaking.

For medicines, as of now I am only taking probiotics and multivitamins. Though the frequency of the days when I feel the weakness is reduced but yes once or twice in a week I have it. And also when I am having food I feel like going toilet. Please suggest the best I can do in such situation.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

You have two problems:

1. H.Pylori associated dyspepsia for which you received treatment and hope that it will improve.

2. You have postprandial defecation and going to toilet, which is more suggestive of irritable bowel.

I will advise to continue your Pantoprazole, probiotics as per the prescription of your GP (general physician) and take the following medications in addition. It will help improve your bowels and subsequently your weakness in two weeks time.

Probable diagnosis:

Dyspepsia. Irritable bowel.

Treatment plan:

Tablet Mebeverine 135 mg one tablet three times daily before meals for two weeks.
