    I’m very weary of PPI’s, I was on and off a few of them for 3 years. After 6 months, I had a drop in calcium, a couple of weeks after that I had a drop in phosphates, I’ve never had anything in my like show up in my blood tests. The latest one I’m wondering about is my liver/gall bladder issues. Never had bother with them until being on omeprazole and Lansoprazole. I’ve had every type of bowel movement there is, I’m currently waiting on an endoscopy, and yes, I think they probably could cause diarrhoea

    My guess is to just go and get the endoscopy done. Hopefully it’ll show what is wrong.  I have mine booked for Friday never been so scared in my life but I’ve heard a lot more good stories than bad
