Hello all. I have sibo and yeast overgrowth. I take hcl and pepsin with meals. I never get burning or anything on them so I was assuming i have low stomach acid. Low stomach acid of course lets sibo and yeast to take over. Well since yesterday I have major pain in my stomach, as of now it subsided a lot but I have a lot of gurgling. This all occured after I ate some yogurt, some berries and I just made coconut bread to try and get more carbs. I also went to the bathroom last night like 6 times after I ate. But the pain was still there. I ate this morning, eggs again and it happened again. I just ate fruit an hour ago and the pain is much better. I wonder if Im getting sensitive to eggs as I eat 3 or 4 a day or every other day. Or had a reaction to the coconut bread. I also know fruit should be eaten alone especially with my horrible digestion. However I was wondering if HCL has given me an ulcer. I really hope this isn't an ulcer. Has anyone had one before. I still have a good appetite, no dark stools, no blood, no vomiting yet. THanks everyone

Ah, then I believe you have acid reflux caused by small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). Reduce your carb intake to less than 50 grams per day for several days and see if that helps. Essentially this means eating only some fruit and nuts as a carb source. Bacteria is fermenting the carbs (sugar), releasing gas into your stomach. This can cause all sorts of weird pain.

I have knawing pain in by my belly button up to my chest after I eat. No acid reflux though. I got tested three times in the past 7 months for h pylori and its negative. I have been real gassy though the past few days. I m gonna stop the hcl and maybe the enzymes but my digestion is awful. I feel the like the fruit and the extra fiber at once maybe caused this feeling? I don't know. But I feel like it can be an ulcer but I hope not.

What makes you think you have an ulcer? An ulcer can simply feel like a small knot that is uncomfortable but not painful. Little/no blood. HCL supplementation can prevent ulcers from healing since acid irritates the ulcer.

I suggest you see a GI specialist and get tested for H.pylori. Ulcers are almost always caused by H. Pylori or prolonged consumption of NSAIDs.

Ulcers I had were made worse by HCL despite it alleviating acid reflux and IBS symptoms. After getting rid of H. Pylori I am fine. No acid reflux, IBS, or ulcers.
