prilosec

Avatar n tn I have been on Prevacid and Prilosec. I LOVE my Prilosec, it allows me to feel like a normal person. Without it I am in pain, not only in my chest, but in my arms, neck, face, and various weird places on my body.It took about 3 months before I had true relief and you MUST take your pill at the same time every day. You should never miss a dose because it will set you back to square one. I hope you find results!
Avatar f tn Has anyone experiences getting gallstones after being on Prilosec (omeprazole) for a month or more? I never had any problems with my gall bladder and it may just be coincidence, but would like to figure out if there's a connection. I'm wondering if the reduced acid in the stomach affects how the gall bladder works, leading to gallstones. I'm not able to find any literature on this.
Avatar f tn They found some small stones but I am also having pain under the left side of my ribs some times under the left breast whenever I eat it gets worse and no matter what I eat I am always burping it up. Have been taking Prilosec for it but it's not any better. My question is can problems with the glallbladder bring on acid reflux disease.
Avatar n tn i have a couple of questions regarding chest pain and gallstones. a couple of months ago i began to have some nausea. at the time, my primary care physican told me that i had reflux and put me on prilosec. for the next couple of months, i was on prilosec or prevacid, which helped the nausea go away; however, i began to develop bad heartburn and upper left chest pain, around the nipple area of my left chest.
Avatar f tn I went to my doctor yesterday and he told me to take 2 prilosec instead of 1 and to take carafate before meals---did you lose some weight---I have lost 10 pounds in a month and a half because I hardly eat because of the nausea---I truly eat very little fat---grits, oatmeal, turkey sandwiches, broccoli, broiled fish, baked potato----- also dr.
Avatar f tn It is suggested to discuss your complaints with your attending doctor and get them clarified. Do write to me again. Bet luck and regards!
Avatar n tn If any of you have taken it and then started feeling like you had an ulcer and your Gallbladder removed let me know. But back in 95 I went to the Dr and tehy put me on Prilosec without an upper GI. I took it for 3 years until i got pregnant with my child. After having my son i went back on it because i got a gnawing feel in my Duodenum. I could be having the best time in my life at Disney World and have to stop and eat evey hour. The food made the pain go away for a whole hour.
Avatar n tn About 2 months ago, I had my gallbladder out because I had gallstones and nausea and when it came out, they said it was inflammed. Seems like alot of things wrong with me when before last year I never had any problems at all. My docotors are treating me separatly for each thing (my nausea has gone since the gallbladder removal) does anyone think that maby all this stuff is somehow connected? I keep[ thinking this but why would my doctor not get it?
Avatar n tn For about 2 months I have had pain in the upper right quad of my stomach, empty feeling in my stomach, pain in my back at times, pain in my right shoulder at times, pain between by shoulder blades at times,some foods create burning sensation in my gut about 20 minutes after eating but it gradually subsides and the same foods do not always cause this response,sometimes lower right back pain, burping, gas, and feeling bloated. The sx on and off.
Avatar n tn I recently spoke to a GP concerning this and he suggested I may have Gallstones (which is the same thing my mom suggested), he referred me to a GI specialist. When I had my appointment the GI doc asked me several questions concerning the pain (dull to burning), locations (upper right quad of stomach, etc.

Avatar n tn Sincerely - Starr Dear Starr, It is sometimes difficult to distinguish symptoms secondary to gallstones and those secondary to peptic ulcer disease and Helicobacter pylori infection. To confuse the issue, even if gallstones are present on the ultrasound, they may not be responsible for the symptoms that you are experiencing.
Avatar n tn He emperically treated me with Prilosec and I had a blood test : for H.pylori, results should be available next week. When I : mentioned the possibility of Gallstones he quickly remarked that : he didn't want to "cloud" the issue and even if I did have : gallstones he wouldn't do anything about them. I took the : medication for three days and got headaches, constipated, : and fatigued. I discontinued at the physicians recommendation : and have not taken anything for two days.
Avatar n tn Possibly something stuck? I dont know. But i have had 2 prilosec and 2 ranatidine. i really dont wanna go to the ER and risk getting flu or something. Any idea what this is? Is it an emergency?

1797743 tn?1389217285 I even went without Prilosec for several days, and still had no problem. Not saying Armour is the only solution, but clearly I needed to increase my FT3.
Avatar f tn Now recently I've had heartburn for the first time in my life. Prior to the GB removal I never had any symptoms of acid reflux. Took Prilosec for 2 weeks and then Nexium for a month but I believe I was experiencing some side effects from the PPIs. When I went to a gastroenterologist last week I had been feeling a little better after stopping the Nexium. So we decided to wait a week and see how it went.
Avatar n tn He has been suffering from severe stomach pains and nausea on a daily basis. He use to drink and smoke in the past, but has stopped. He eats normally, unless he's in pain. Any advice or assistance will be appreciated. Thanks!! I am feeling so frustrated because I can't seem to get the proper help for him,since he is in pain every single day.
446335 tn?1223951956 I did have an endoscopy in 2/06 and dx as esophageal stricture (which they dilated) and GERD. I have been taking prilosec for yrs. and don't have heartburn any more. Just mainly these terribly painful attacks. Let me know what you find out. I've been discussing these and other problems on this forum under the question about bloating and shortness of breath with boron. Have gotten some really useful info. Check it out and see if any of it sounds familiar. Let me know. Good luck!
5882236 tn?1377621424 There was a slight narrowing and they stretched that out, and my swallowing became much easier. In addition to the two Prilosec I was taking, I started taking Carafate and Zantac at night. Within two weeks I felt fine again. About two weeks later, I reduced my Prilosec to once a day, and stopped taking the other drugs. One week later, I started getting these symptoms again. This time I am notice a lot of upper back pain that is going along with the heartburn. I went to the Dr.
Avatar m tn Seven years ago, I started having trouble—severe pain in the right upper quadrant and epigastric region that radiates to the back and right shoulder; accompanied with alternating constipation and diarrhea, nausea, and fatigue. There is no noticeable jaundice, no elevated enzymes, amylase, or lipase from multiple tests. In the beginning, this was associated with eating greasy or fatty foods. After an ultrasound during an ER visit, they found a problem with my gallbladder.
Avatar n tn I take calcium supplements for my bones, but stopped taking it while I stomach was bothering me. It seems to be feeling some better since I have taken Prilosec. I took my calcium and my stomach or something else. Has anyone heard of calcium being irritating to the stomach. If so, how can I get the calcium I need, since I am supposed to eliminate dairy products from my diet because of the gastritis. I have also tried soy milk. Is is ok to use?
Avatar n tn Furthermore, if you eat chocolate or spicy food you will get the same problems! You probably have gallstomes as well and don't know it! You get gallstones from inactivity or poor diet! They are common today. You should take two full glasses of water in the morning and two in the evening and excercise with a walk and or a slow jog, then do at least 20-25 jumping jacks everynight along with 10-20 push ups and sit ups to get your circulation going!! STOP THE BEER!
Avatar n tn Sounds very familar...think gallstones or hianal hernia, or esophagus sphinter muscle, or GERDs, or a number of other possibilities centering around the beginning of your intestinal track. Also get your doctor to stop thinking heart, and start thinking gut. Ultrasound, Hida-scan, and other test can determine the cause. I speak from experience, not as a doctor.
Avatar n tn Im wondering if anyone has ideas my GI doc has put me on Rubinol for the pain (nonnarcotic), miralax to try to stimulate me to go to the bathroom and 40 ml prilosec and im scheduled to get a colonoscopy and endoscopy sometime soon but does anyone here have any similar symptoms or have any tips for me?
Avatar n tn Have something similar but with pain for 9 months I have been finally diagnosed with gallstones and so have looked for all the information on it. What i have seen is that it worse when you eat fatty meals, Does not always follow the text book symptoms and is common enough with pregnancy have a look on the internet should not be to hard to find.
