Hi,
It is irrational to take treatment against a organism which is not present . It may led to resistant strain , superinfection , side effect of irrational drug ,....etc.
Epigastric burning pain , abdominal fullness , burping ,........are symptoms of gastritis and can occurs sure to various pathology (including H pylori ). So your symptoms could be of other pathology .
So in my opinion Take PPI (pantoprazole ) once a day in empty stomach with antacid thrice a day for 7days along with lifestyle modifications like have food at regular interval , avoid long time fasting , avoid tea, coffee(esp empty stomach ), tobacco, alcohol , fatty n spicy food, chcolates , sedentary habits , Do regular exercise, have plenty of fruits n vegetables , rophage .

Hope this ll help

Thanks n regards
