Hello everyone! Back in March 2019 I was having trouble burping so I reached into my medicine cabinet and took a very old prescription of Omeprazole( 20 mg). Day four of talking the drug I started to experience tightness in my stomach muscles followed by changes in my stool. I did not put two and two together and continued taking it. March 27th I went to Urgent Care because of the tightness feeling I was experiencing and was told that it was GERD, so I was prescribed 40mg of Omeprazole for 2 weeks. Two days later I was panicked and My rushed me to the ER where I had Blood tests , ultrasound , and an EKG. All tests were normal and was diagnosed with gastritis. I followed up with my GP and she referred me to a Gastroenterologist. I had a colonoscopy , ultrasound, and endoscopy. All test were normal except for a little extra acid. I joined a Gerd support group online and a group member said that my symptoms sound like I was suffering from side effects from Omeprazole. I visited and saw a lot of the symptoms I was having. I now have numbness and tightness in my stomach only. It has been almost six months and no changes. I am now fearing it my be MS. My family and I moved to Germany July 2019 and I am currently looking to find a neurologist. Has anyone ever experienced anything similar to my symptoms?
