Prilosec gas

Common Questions and Answers about Prilosec gas


Avatar n tn Hi, My doctor prescribed prilosec about 3 months ago for what he feels is Acid Reflux (Gerd?) Is this drug safe to take over an extended period of time? Id also like to know if there are any gastro/intestinal problems that can cause wide spread burning, tingling, twitching, muscle pain, ear pain throughout the body? I know that seems far fetched, but I have explored EVERYTHING, (neurologists, etc) and so far no one has been able to come up with anything. Thank you for your time.
Avatar n tn Maybe some of this is related to fear and anxiety. Since you are having these feelings often now, you could possibly be afraid of embarrassing yourself around others.

268911 tn?1213748381 I'm new to this forum and was wondering if someone might be able to tell me if abdominal pain, constipation and gas are side effects of PPI's. My neighbor is a doctor and prescribed me prevacid, I took them for 2 weeks, and began to notice these problems. I told him this and his response was "Prevacid does not have those side efffects." but when I search "Prevacid side effects" these symptoms show up on every page. ANy direction woudl be appreciated.
Avatar f tn About 2 months ago I had bad acid reflux. I started taking Prilosec which helped a bunch. Shortly after being on it, I started getting gallbladder pain. I have had it since. My Dr. did blood work and I got an ultra sound on my liver/ gallbladder. Everything came back normal. Yesterday, I stopped taking the prilosec to see if it was giving me gallbladder pain. It seems better....not contracting pain. I still have mild pain. Has anyone else experienced this?
Avatar n tn I am very bloated every day-Gas X helps but I take 3Xday. I can feel the food coming back up. I read Prilosec and Prevacid are about the same. What about Nexium-can it work better, cut down constipation, cramping, gas bloating, spasms?
Avatar m tn and prescribed me a generic brand of prilosec called omeprazole. He told me to take 2 pills a day i think each pill is 20 mg, and he wanted me to take it for 6 months! I ended up taking them for 2 months, and i didnt notice any improvement towards my panic attacks or anything, instead i actually had MORE side effects like headaches, hair loss, stomach pain, loss of appetite and fast heartbeat.
Avatar m tn All day i have had a burning sensation in my throat and it feels like gas bubbles are rising up my throat. i can burp but then it hurts more? does anyone know what this could be or how to stop it! to me it feels like heartburn in my throat.
Avatar n tn I also gas up if I get very hungry which makes it hard to eat and get my stomach full, which makes me gas up. I take two generic Prilosec every morning which helps, but I still wake up gassed up. After I get rid of the early morning gas, I belch quite a bit the rest of the day, but at least it doesn't nauseate me. I don't pass much gas, so it all appears to be in my esophagus and stomach. I had my gallbladder removed in 1974.
Avatar n tn I do have a high acidic stomach, which I take 30 mg Previced everyday. Prilosec gave me stomach cramps and diarrhea. About 3 years ago I began noticing I was haveing more gas than normal. It has gotten worse in the past 18 months. It is ordorless but not soundless. I may just be walking across my class room a fart pops pops out, some small some not so small. I don't have any bloating are gas pain build up, just unpredictable farts. This is quiet embarrassing.
Avatar n tn Six yrs ago i was scoped, and told i had mild gastritis,I was put on prilosec,which worked great for 2 years,the symptoms of excess gas and burping or the need to burp returned. I was put on prevacid and it worked most of the time with only occasional the prevacid does not seem to help as well.My symptoms are upper gas,only occassional slight stomach pains. I can not go to sleep for hours after eating.(gas).I seem to set gas and slight acidy feeling also on a empty stomach.
Avatar n tn All the over the counter meds haven't worked for me, including Tums, Prilosec OTC, Pepsid AC, Gas-X, stool softeners. One more reason why I know it's my stomach and not my lungs/heart... I took a laxitive to purposely flush out my bowels and I could breath very normally immediately after going to the bathroom. I did it to prove a point to myself that I wasn't going crazy. The doc that gave me the Adavan in the ER made me feel like it was psychogenic (in my head).
Avatar f tn Hey! I've seen so many posts about constant gas and you all seem to be having the same problem as me. (uncontrollable gas, killing your social life, you don't want to go out in public, etc.) I was wondering if any of you have found a cure because it is ruining my life and I am starting to lose hope. I am a 16 year old girl and I want this to be cured before college. The social embarassment at school was so bad that I am in online school now.
Avatar n tn Diarrhea; gas; headache; nausea; stomach pain; vomiting.
Avatar f tn I had horrible gas for a few days until I took a couple doses of probiotics. Cleared right up.
Avatar m tn Have you tried taking Prilosec? You can buy it over the counter, and it will reduce acid and gas in your stomach. Or try chewing 2-3 tums when you feel gassy, and if you get no relief, see your doctor.
Avatar f tn Decided to try using the restroom. Gas. Gas and more gas. Geez. False alarm had me a little scared. Happen to anyone else?
Avatar n tn Gas is probably one of the worst foes for people who suffer from anxiety and panic. Gas can bring on both very fast. Gas can travel up and it can travel down. When it's trapped, you get panic. When it travels up, you get heart symptoms. A large build up of gas in the upper intestinal tract can cramp the space that your heart is used to having to beat nice and free. An invasion on this space by gas can cause your heart to race, chest pains, and breathlessness.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed months ago with acid reflux and take prilosec which helps. 2 weeks ago I had horrible stomach aches and saw the dr. Since then, I've continued to have horrible gas pains and bowel sounds. She sent me for a Ct thinking it was an intestine inflammation...she found 2 large complex cysts one on each ovary. I had an MRI on Sunday and she called saying they found 2 small simple cysts on the left ovary and nothing on the right. I'm so confused! How could it change so quickly?
Avatar f tn I can feel my stomach moving around after I eat, I think it may be gas. I burp a lot and a lot of the burps have a nasty taste to them. I feel like I have a lump in my throat. It's not so bad that I can't swallow but it makes me feel a bit nauseous. Sometimes after I eat I get a lot of pressure through my chest up to my throat. Like I have a lot of gas stuck in it and it makes the lump feel a lot worse. There are days when I can barely eat a thing because I feel so bad.
Avatar m tn I've had an endoscopy and a barium esophogram also all normal. It seems to me that all the symptoms are related to gas in the chest cavity. The symptoms now include "gurgling" feelings in multiple areas of the chest and back and what feel like especially strong heartbeats that I can feel easily, but the pulse rate remains normal. Burping sometimes helps but is difficult to induce.
Avatar f tn I have vomited yellow about 3 times today because of the pressure of the gas. Also have trouble passing gas thru the other way as well. The doctor diagnosed me with acid reflux and IBS. The only thing I drink is water nothing else and have been for 3 months now. Lowered my fiber intake. No dairy what so ever. Stopped eating all grain wheat and bread also stopped eating fried and greasy foods. Have been taking mirolax for the constipation also Prilosec for acid reflux.
Avatar n tn Gas and bloating and trapped gas - is common if your certin medications , as they can cause this to happen/ as well with acid reflux , you should be taking somekind of med for it (to stop it from happening) gas can cause palps to happen in some cases. yes it depends what your eatting too! try and eat as blan as you can - dont drink soda pop's fizzy drinks - eat slow and try to keep the mouth closed when eatting, dont talk while eatting. as air gets down inside you - thus gas builds up.
Avatar f tn I can't believe I found this site. How can so many of us have I these same symptoms and the docs be unable to correctly diagnose Had my gallbladder removed late October, but continue to have pain in lower right quadrant and swelling and pain in all of abdomen most of the time. Have had ultrasounds, blood tests, cat scans, colonoscopy. One biopsy showed colitis, but Flagyl and Cipro have not helped. I thought I was dying. It helps so much to know that so many of us are in the same boat...
Avatar n tn Also try to avoid all veggies that causes gas ( brocoli, cabbage, peppers etc.) I'm a IBS patient, and theres alot of things that I have to avoid, and I don't take that many meds. I take Imodium when I need to and Metamucil for extra fiber.. No oil in any food, nothing fried no dairy except Lactose free milk for cereal. And thats all, oh yeah I eat small meals and frequent meals. I still get cramps because of digesting but the rest helps to control my IBS. Hopefully that helped.
Avatar n tn After having the tests, my heart has settled down, no problems. Now I have stomach and intestinal gas and discomfort. I mainly feel it in my stomach and sometimes feel tension or discomfort right in the middle of my chest, perhaps in my esophagus. The feeling comes and goes and is relieved by an induced, deep belch. Sometimes I feel gas or liquids rolling in my stomach or intestines.
Avatar m tn I had bad gas build up in my stomach and was quite painful at times. My doctor said it is from the Riba and to take Pepcid or something similar. So I did what the doctor ordered and with one Max Strength Pepcid my problem was gone. Thank goodness because it was getting crazy and making me feel really sick. My question, based on others experience is there a preference as to whether Pepcid or Prilosec works better for long term use during Tx?
170935 tn?1225374676 During the procedure they blew air into her stomach to inflate it!! Since then she obviously has alot of stomach gas but she has been having non stop pvcs too!! Yesterday for about 6 hours every third beat was an ectopic!! They have calmed down alot today and she is not really bothered by them but is there a connection between gas and palps? I know i tend to burb after a pvc and after eating i definitely get more.
Avatar m tn Then, like clockwork, about 5pm a flareup begins with bad gas and abdominal cramps and lasts 3-4 hrs. Since I take the prilosec at 6 am I wondered if at that time it is wearing off.
