I have been diagnosed with peptic ulcer four months back, and I was put on Omeprazole. I took it for three and a half weeks, but then due to horrendous side effects and the need for an H.pylori test, I stopped taking it for around 10 days. The H.pylori test came back negative. I was then put on Lansoprazole, which I have been taking for 15 days now. After about five days, most of my initial symptoms, namely acid reflux, severe back pain, and mild stomach discomfort seemed to disappear, but then I caught a bad cold which seemed to affect my sinuses as well. Since then, the acid reflux and pain in the back has resurfaced. Do you think this is due to the cold and sinus problems? Also, do I need to go for an endoscopy at this stage? I saw improvement, although it has got worse again. Would it be better to wait for the cold to go and see what happens then?
