This is scary. I have just been diagnosed with Helicobacter pylori bacteria The doctor told me it was most likely caused by something I ate a long time ago, probably meat not cooked all the way. I used to eat all of my meat rare. I way also diagnosed with a severe case of Gastritis. Thankfully I have good doctors.

Hi Dalbeck, thanks a lot for the updates on this. As I'm living in Hamburg it's important to know the current status. Can you tell me if the symtoms differ from any other infection of this kind for a healthy person? Is it just the same (only more serve) or are the symtoms that tell me it's EHEC and not just something else. And if you're healthy is this going away on it's own?
Health officials in Denmark and Sweden reported Friday a total of 32 confirmed cases of people afflicted by the EHEC bacterium, all of whom had previously been travelling in Germany. Officials in Copenhagen said that additionally, the EHEC bacterium was found in Spanish cucumbers in two supermarkets. Merchants were ordered to immediately withdraw all their products imported from the producers involved. Swedish health officials advised people currently travelling in Germany to take special precautions to avoid contacting the virulent bug, a new sub-strain of E. coli, enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli, or EHEC. The EHEC first broke out in the northern German port city of Hamburg, with health authorities there pointing to cucumbers imported from Spain as the source of the bacterium. Four people in Germany have died and hundreds taken ill from the EHEC bug.
EHEC is a very contagious disease and can pass from person to person. “We have a few of these cases as well, where family members have passed the disease among each other,” Per Follin, a specialist on infectious disease from western Sweden.
The Sweden-based European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control said this outbreak was "one of the largest described of HUS worldwide and the largest ever reported in Germany". It said: "While HUS cases are usually observed in children under five years of age, in this outbreak 87% are adults, with a clear predominance of women (68%)."
