I had a groin strain (which turned out to be a hernia, but that's another story), so my GP told me to take Ibuprofen, to help with the pain and inflammation, all this did was cause terrible indigestion, so was put on omeprazole for two weeks, 20mg, this seemed to work for a few weeks and then it came back.
So I was put on an increased dose, 80mg, this eased the indigestion but seems to be causing all sorted of other issues.
- A pretty much constant pain in my right abdomen, just below the ribs, with lesser occasional pain on the right side and in the centre.
- Constipation, darker stools and more straining hence some piles have arrived.
- Pain in some of my muscles, particularly in my legs, arms and shoulders.
- Back pain, both lower and upper, although more so lower.
- Pain in my glutes.
I have since been switched to Lansoprazole, 60mg, and that seems to of made no difference. Had a gastroscopy and an ultra sound and seems there is nothing majorly wrong but thats not easing the discomfort much.
Has anyone else had any such symptoms? Or any other?
Be good to hear back as I think I need to get off these things.
