Doctor

A:   Most H. Pylori infections are usually cured after the successful completion of the treatment. However rarely, re infection may recur upto 1 year after the completion of the treatment in few cases. You may want to get tested for the reinfection, and once it has been ruled out you may also consult your GP for an evaluation of your heart health, because your symptoms of headache, dizziness and short breath may be associated with your heart health.
