I'd like to share my personal experiences with antacid, PPIs, or histamine 2 blockers. Everytime I take either Omeprazole, or Zantac, or Pepcid, my RLS acts up like crazy even after only 2 to 3 days of taking them. I have consulted with a RLS specialist about the effects of antacid on RLS who adamantly denied the effects on RLS. Therefore I have searched on line and tried to find out if there is any association between them. According to a prestigious and cridible article, there is no robust direct evidence to support any association of PPIS and RLS. it says there is an indirect evidence, because PPIs would alter the PH in the duodenum and may interfere with
iron absortion in certain patients. According to my personal experiences I don't agree with this theory. The reason being 1, I am being fed via a J-tube, it means all my nutrition would bypass the stomach and go directly to my small interstine. 2. SInce my nutrition go to my small interstine, I would not experience iron deficiency associated with taking food the normal way, by mouth and go to my stomach. So, I'd like to know if anyone has similar experiences with antacid or I am just a very weird, unique person. Thanks.
