I began taking Omeprazole last week after experiencing upper stomach pains from what the dr reckons is a long term side effect of taking dicloflex and tramadol. I was feeling fine until Saturday when I was in a shop with my daughter and I suddenly began to feel faint. She suggested sitting down while she when to fetch her Dad from outside but I couldn't see so just draped myself over a clothes rail. I can vaguely remember realising that my husband was holding me up but remember nothing after that until I came round in the back of an ambulance. I had had a full blown fit; eyes rolling, bit my tongue, head thrown back, arms twisted and my whole body was stiff and shaking (according to my husband and kids) I am still feeling dizzy and confused which is vey scared but the dr has no answers except that it takes a while for people to recover from having a fit. the medics and des think that the reason I had the fit was because I didn't lie down when I initially felt faint!?! I have never experienced anything like this before so I am starting to think either I am seriously ill or it is a side effect to this new medication I am on. Like others I feel panicky, can't concentrate, struggle to think and recall, have a racing heart, feel shaky .....not nice!! has anyone else experienced this or have any tips? I took my last tablet at 8:30am this morning and don't intend on taking anymore after reading some of these stories....I'll keep the pain in my belly over feeling like this anyway!!!
