2022 December 17 i had a bad flu like symptoms
i had this for around a week . i then had bad sinus infection that i had antibiotics for . because i had the flu i couldnt eat so the antibiotics caused me to have reflux type symptoms . so was prescribed omeprazole 20mg was on these around 5-6 weeks on and off
i went to see a ENT specialist as i also had sore throat . i had camera to check my throat and he said i had silent reflux that was causing my sore throat ear pain and maybe the sinus problems .
so he upped my dose to 40mg omeprazole and take Gaviscon after every meal . from day one of taking the 20mg my mind wasnt right i felt like i was in a daze constantly and had no urgency to do anything and thats not like me at all im a very active fit boxer whos constantly on the go doing something . when the ENT upped my dose to 40mg i went to bits . couldnt sleep /eat / shaking from head to toe and was having anxiety attacks . i was suicidal also . on day 5 i stopped them as i was at a breaking point and could only put it down to omeprazole as i dont drink / smoke and never had any mental illnesses in my life . im 6 weeks off it now but still my mind isnt right at all . i got brain fog / fatigue / anxiety / suicidal thoughts/ blurred vision / and my stomach feels like its constantly bloated caused by omeprazole . has anyone had similar to me and did they ever get back to normal . im 34 and a father of 3 with a great wife to be and i just cant live like this anymore . any information be great . ive seen 4 different doctors and theyre all in on it trying to get me back on the drug plus antidepressants that i wont take . feels like im going around in circles . HELP please any information be great
