There is no one symptom, or set of symptoms, that indicate H. pylori infection. Some of the symptoms that may be associated with this infection include nausea, abdominal pain, esophageal reflux, dyspepsia (upper and mid-abdominal pain), bloating, or belching. Severe cases of Helicobacter pylori infection result in swollen protrusions in the intestinal lining from the ulcers that have developed. Conversely, one may be completely asymptomatic for many years, and experience no symptoms at all.
The only way to know for sure if you have an H. pylori infection is to be tested. If you believe you may be infected, make an appointment to speak to your doctor, especially if you have any persistent signs or symptoms that concern you.
