Hello Although symptoms may be similar re-infection with H.Pylori is uncommon (2%) if it was eradicated 2 years back. I would suggest you to test for H pylori - endoscopy + rapid urease test or stool antigen test before you think about treatment. You may start with PPI for the time being for symptomatic relief.
