I'm on anti-depressants and i have fibromyalgia so i take some nerve medication for that. A few weeks ago I weaned myself off of all my medications because I started experiencing intense and constant pain any time I consumed anything. I tried to avoid triggers but it didn't work and I was in near constant pain that would even wake me up in the middle of the night and keep me awake for hours. I weaned myself off everything and as I weaned, my symptoms improved and were almost non-existent. I started seeing a new doctor and started a different treatment plan which includes omeprazole and a few other medications for depression and fibro, and it didn't take long for the pain to come back. This has happened to me with a lot of different medications. I was told it might be gastritis, but no remedies like tums, apple cider vinegar, etc ever work and I just have to wait it out. Anyone have any idea what this could be? Is it possible that I'm more susceptible to medication side effects (some of the medications I've been on while having these issues have chest pain as a side effect, it's usually listed as rare), or could it be that my stomach can't digest properly like gastroparesis and is exacerbated with medications which are difficult to break down? Any insight would be appreciated!
