Hi, I was wondering if anyone experienced muscle twitching after stopping Omeprazole?
I was given a 28 day course of Omeprazole for suspected silent reflux. Within a few days of taking the medication I began to get very dizzy and felt completely spaced out. I couldn't concentrate and was struggling to talk and string sentences together. I didn't make the connection between these symptoms and a possibly reaction to the omeprazole until my partner suggested I google the side effects. around day 16 of taking the medication I looked up possible side effects and discovered dizziness was common. I immediately ceased taking the medication. However the next day I had a strange buzzing feeling all over my body which persisted and turned into severe pins and needles and a burning sensation in my hands and feet. This subsided after about 24 hours but I was left with a crawling feeling in my right calf and ankle. I ignored it at first but I then noticed that my calf was twitching constantly, in random places. This twitching has now spread to my left calf (although it's not as bad or frequent in the left leg). I'm now on day 6 since I quite the omeprazole but the twitching and fasciculations aren't going away and I'm starting to freak out. Has anyone else experienced this or something similar? You google persistent muscle twitching and some very scary results come back. I'm trying not to think the worst. Thanks.
