Diarrhea, acid flux, stomach pain
Dec 27, 2006

I have been positive for two years. I dont take medication yet because my t-cell # is 419, Vl 1100, 35%. Two months ago,I got sick with H pylori, and caused me acid flux. I took some medication for that, but i still had some gases. Then my Dr prescribed me flagy, which hurt my stomach and made me more sick. Now I still have acid flux, my Dr prescribed me Nexium, protonix, and some other pills, but they dont work on me. Right now, I have a lot of gases especially for my rectum area, diarrhea, bloating, my stomach pain, heartburn, the gases move around my intestine,sometimes my kidness hurts. I'm losing weight, my stomach can hold much. I'm taking some probiotics for the diarrhea, and that helps me a bit. I dont know what to do, my Dr doesnt find anything on my tests: stool, urine, blood. They dont see any parasite nor bacteria. so What is causing this diahrrea, stomach pain, acid flux, gases, heartburn, dizziness, headache. Do you have any idea or advice? thanks

This forum is exclusively for the discussion of side effects of HIV treatment-I suggest further discussion with your HIV and GI specialist(s) regarding your impressive ongoing GI problems.
