I have been treated twice for the bacteria (h. pylori), taken the second breathing test a month after treatment and still test positive. Is there anything else..the Dr. treating me said that there is no need to treat again with those same meds because they didn t work for me....why is this? He has me on a waiting list for any new rx that may come out. Is there anything that I should do in the meantime?

4 year old son has the following symptoms.: abdominal distention, diarrhea, and vomiting for 1 week. Vomiting sunsided and abdominal distention persists, regular stool and stomach pain ( upper stomach- just below the rib cage in the middle). He was put on Zofran for nausea, 3 week course of Clarithro and Amoxicillin since H pylori cam back positive - done by pediatrician. Meanwhile the gastroenterologist did EGD post abx therapy said biopsy is normal and stomach looks fine and that his symptoms should resolve. HEr belief is that the nausea and abdominal pain is a result of a bad gastroenteritis. It has now been 6 weeks and the diarrhea returned for 24 hours with vomiting for 12 hours. HE now continues with the stomach pain which comes and goes and what he describes as his stomach rumbling for food. He has been on Prevacid for 5 weeks. Upper GI with follow thru is normal. IS there something else wrong?? PEdiatrician blood test for lactose and gluten sensitivity were negative. What could be the cause of this chronic stomach pain with nausea?
