Hi all. I'm a female almost 20 years old.
It's a bit long but I could really use some advice now (or moral support)
In early Dec 2016 I woke up in the middle of the night feeling really nauseous, but I didn't throw up or anything. For the whole week I felt nauseous almost all the time. The following week I went to see a GP and was prescribed Omeprazole 20 mg to be taken daily before breakfast. I felt a bit better after a few days but still felt nauseous (it was worst at night). I then went back home oversea and went to see another doctor there. I've had acid reflux several years before and he said this might be acid reflux or something with my stomach. He doubled my dose to twice daily (before breakfast and before dinner) + prescribed me Motilium and asked me to come back again in 3 weeks. During the 3 weeks there were good and bad days but my condition was so much better I thought I would be fine soon. When I went back to the doctor after 3 weeks, he told me to take Omeprazole 20 mg before breakfast only for 2 more weeks because he saw that my condition was better. However, only 1-2 days after that I had a horrible nausea again. I had to travel so I was back on Omeprazole and Motilium both twice daily. I continued to take Motilium for a few weeks but is now off it completely. I am still on Omeprazole twice daily. My conditions so far have been up and down. I sometimes feel acid in my throat but no heartburn. I also occasionally feel full, bloated and sometimes a lump in my throat (normally after dinner). Now I also feel a bit nauseous here and then as well. I really want to see a GP again but it's fully booked until the end of the month.
Does anyone have similar experience? Should I start weaning off Omeprazole or should I continue to take it? I don't want to be on it for too long but I also can't stand if I have to go back to feeling nauseous again.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
