Brief Answer: Please see the details Detailed Answer: Hello! Thanks for putting your query in XXXXXXX I am a Gastroenterologist (DM). This all may be either due to side effect of clarithromycin or may be some other issue. So I will advise you to stop these medications for a time. And may continue with Cap Omeprazole as you may having dyspepsia for which you have undergone endoscopy examination. Moreover it is not always necessary to eradicate this bacteria(H.pylori). Meanwhile may also take some analgesic of Non NSAID group for which you may discuss with your doctor. If it is not relieved in few days then you should be evaluated for some other cause I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. If you have any further query I will be happy to answer that too. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
