For all my friends who served in the 1st Gulf War and/or were forced to have the Anthrax vaccine, please read. This was posted in a group that I'm a member of. This disease has been tied to Gulf War syndrome and the Anthrax vaccine.... Get TESTED for H Pylori, the more I read about it, if you were in the Gulf andhave the infection it could be wreaking havoc on your immune system andbody. Here are the 10 most common H. pylori symptoms;H pylori could be contributing to your symptoms if you are suffering from any of the following;1. Heartburn or Acid Reflux (GERD) Whether these symptoms occur on a regular, or even infrequent basis, you may well be infected with H. pylori.2. Diarrhea, Constipation, Flatulence, Bloating. Because H. pylori interferes with acid in your stomach, you can't digest food properly.3. Fatigue and Low Energy Levels.H pylori creates a non-stop stress on your body, making you feel tired. Added to the possibility that you are not digesting your food properly, your body is not getting the correct nourishment to maintain it's proper energy levels.4. Nausea & Vomiting. Many people feel nauseous when with H. pylori infections. Sometimes this can mistaken for pregnancy morning sickness. In some cases, vomiting does occur.5. Unplanned Weight and Muscle Loss. Because H pylori affects acid levels - which affects the digestive process of fats and proteins especially - you may notice that you are losing weight. The problem is that this weight loss is due to muscle loss, which is a dangerous way to lose weight.6. Difficulty Losing WeightThis is a surprising symptom opposite to the above. The reason for this is that a hormone called cortisol is produced when your body is stressed. Cortisol is known to cause either weight loss or weight gain, depending on the person. Cortisol can promote weight gain around the stomach area, and at the same time can also cause muscle loss.7. Hormonal Symptoms including Mood Swings & PMSThese are usually caused by an over production of Cortisol caused by the stresses of the body trying to deal with infections.8. Depression and AnxietyA very important mood chemical (called serotonin) is largely made in a healthy digestive system. Any damage to your stomach by an H. pylori infection will lead to a shortage of this important chemical.9. Gum Disease, Bad Breath and other Oral infectionsAlthough the H pylori bacteria lives mostly in the stomach and small intestines, it has also been found in the mouth, and even in dental cavities.10. Blocked nose, painful sinuses, colds and infectionsMost people are unaware that the sinuses are joined to the digestive system, and that any irritation to the digestive system can cause sinus problems.
