Hi, thank you for writing to HCM. With this presentation, I think you have a peptic ulcer
. This is often caused by bacteria called Helicobacter pylori
. If I were your treating doctor, I would ask for H. pylori test and if it comes out positive, I would place you on antibiotics for 2 weeks to eradicate it, and proton pump
inhibitors for 4 weeks. Life style changes are also recommended and I congratulate you for doing just that. I hope I have answered your query.
I wish you good health
