I was diagnosed with Duodenitis and Gastritis this month. I was put on Omeprazole 40 Mg and Ranitidine 300 Mg.

My pain in my upper middle abdomen is getting less, but when it does feel tender or sore (usually when my stomach is empty) I get this odd weak feeling in my stomach and legs. It's almost like I have no balance and want to fall. I'm not feeling it in my head, just in my stomach and below.

Does inflamation like this cause odd symptoms like this? or is something else going on?

    Have it checked out with the doc: perhaps some intolerance to your meds?

      went down that route before, all I got was him opening the drug reference book and showing me the list of symptoms to the meds... which it does fit, but it also says less then 1% experience stuff like this

    I have pain in the upper middle and ribs also nausea all the time and dizzy. My doctor said it's the inflamation in my body causing it. Don't no if I believe him or not. I was on ppi's came off them as made no difference at all.

      I don't think I've been nauseaus but the feeling comes from my upper middle abdomen when I feel weak. How long where you on PPI's for?
