I hope someone can help me a little bit, or a lot.
I have been taken Omeprazol for 19 years. I have expirieced all the side effect in I read about in this forum tread and many more.
In 2011 I was in the hospital with anemia and I needed a blodtranfusion. The doctors could not find the reason for this and I still have to take strong Iron to keep it up.
2 months ago I got really bad breathing trouble , it is like I can not get the air all the way down to my lungs. It is really scary. My lungs and heart got checked but there was nothing wrong, other than I suffer from a low puls from time to time. Is there anyone else here that have breathing trouble due to Omeprazole ?
The doctors then made the conclusion that it is because of my back and I started at a chiropraktor but that did not help either. The doctor gave me Tramadol for my back pain and then it got really scary after 3 pills (not at once) I got an anaphylactic shock and was taken to the hospital after I was stabilized at home.
I had to take some antihistamine and some Prednisonol for 3 days after, my breathing was a little better while I took them, but Prednisonol is also to make your body function better.
After this my breathing trouble returned and a month after this I took some of my daughters astma inhaler because I was so frustrated with my trouble of breathing properly. I have taken this medicine before, with the anemia because the doctor first thought it could be astma and I did not have nay problem with this medicine.
This time I got my second anaphylactic shock, I got an Epipen at home at got to the hospital again and again I should take the medicine 3 days, my breathing was so much better.
After 2 anaphylactic shock I was so scared to take my medicine, so 6 days ago I stopped taken my Omeprazole, Codeine ( for back pain).
First thing I noticed after years of drinking up to 5-6 liters a day (1,5 gallon), I now drink like a normal person. Then I noticed my body does not hurt like it use to, my back and so, but not my entire body. But I have been and is still so dizzy that I am afraid to pass out. I have lots of panic attacks and overall feel like my muscles does not work properly and I have been sweating like crazy. But on the positive side my breathing is almost back to normal.
Have any of you experienced breathing trouble while taken Omeprazole ?
Have any of you been drinking so much because of Omeprazole ?
Have any of you have an anaphylactic shock while taken Omeprazole ?
And can any of you tell me how long I will feel like crap, with dizziness and panic attack and sweating ?
Have any of your a doctors word for that Omeprazole has been the course of your problems ?
I live in Denmark and not one doctor have questioned if my anemia, breathing trouble and so on could be from my medicine, but after my drinking became normal after one or two days of Omeprazole and my breathing was getting a little better I started to google and found this tread and now I am scared because I have been taken these pills for 19 years.
