ive been diagnosed as having helicobacter pylori - ive taken the medication and things seen to be slowly getting better. However - ive recently had 3 weeks off work and felt alot better during this time but after only a few days back at work (where i have issues with my manager and his bullying/harrasment of me) i found that i was feeling alot worse - stomach ache, heartburn, chest pain, nausia. I now think that most of my health issues are stress related - am i correct in thinking that high stress levels increase the amount of stomach acid ? can this cause h.pylori ? thanks
