I, too, have some of the symptoms you mentioned. The abdominal pain is the one that I noticed most in your description. I was diagnosed with H. pylori gastritis around May of this year. I, too, had some bizarre symptoms then and they have recently recurred with other symptoms similar to yours. I lost most of my vision which returned (thank God), experienced muscle spasms throughout my body and then muscle fatigue to where my legs would barely hold me up. I thought of MS too because of loss of vision, BLADDER SPASMS that had me feeling like I could live in the bathroom and was urinating much more fluid than I thought I was taking in. Also, I had what sounded to me the the "MS hug" with pain under my ribs and along my left side from under breast to spine. Anyway, I went to the doctor. Not all results are back from blood work, but all blood work that is back is within normal range. I went to an opthalmologist (mostly wanting to be tested for optic neuritis--something that I had heard would make an MS diagnosis more likely). Thankfully, no serious problems with my eyes. The doctor said my eye problems must have been stemming from my systemic muscle spasms that also involved my eyes. ANYWAY, the main thing I want to tell you is this--after a 14-day course of 2 antibiotics four times a day plus a proton pump inhibitor (omeprazole) and 4 times daily pepto bismol, I had tested negative for H. pylori. When all these symptoms returned, I was tested again and once again found to be positive for H. pylori. I'm back on the treatment (making sure to take plenty of probiotics so as not to develop yeast overgrowth from the antibiotics). While my doctor says the other symptoms are very unlikely to be related to H. pylori, I beg to differ, because I had these symptoms when I had it before. My ADVICE--get tested for H. PYLORI. A blood test will show if you have antibodies to it, showing that you at one time had H. pylori in your system. So I would not recommend a blood test but would recommend a stool test for this as it will show if you have an active infection at this time. I also am short on money and with no insurance, so I understand you. Best of luck. Hope this has helped in some way.
