Omeprazole Headache Causes and Reviews


Almost everyone has had a Headache. Headache is the most common form of pain. It's a major reason people miss days at work or school or visit the doctor.

The most common type of Headache is a tension Headache. Tension Headaches are due to tight muscles in your shoulders, neck, scalp and jaw. They are often related to stress, depression or anxiety. You are more likely to get tension Headaches if you work too much, don't get enough sleep, miss meals, or use alcohol.

Other common types of Headaches include migraines, cluster Headaches, and sinus Headaches. Most people can feel much better by making lifestyle changes, learning ways to relax and taking pain relievers.

Not all Headaches require a doctor's attention. But sometimes Headaches warn of a more serious disorder. Let your health care provider know if you have sudden, severe Headaches. Get medical help right away if you have a Headache after a blow to your head, or if you have a Headache along with a stiff neck, fever, confusion, loss of consciousness, or pain in the eye or ear.

Omeprazole Headache Reviews

Wed, 23 May 2012

I was on Omeprazole for 3 month, taking one 20mg dose a day. Towards the end of the 3 months, I started getting moderate to severe leg, foot, arm, and hand cramps. I went to my doctor, and she believed it was due to the Omeprazole and suggested I wean myself off of it over the course of a week. I did, and the stomach pain it was initially prescribed for did not come back, but since then I have had daily leg and arm pains (sometimes chest pain as well), and slight Headaches. It has been approximately a month since I stopped taking this medicine and I still have these pains and cramps. Is anyone else still experiencing this after stopping using Omeprazole

I'm going back to the doctor on Monday to figure out if something else is wrong. These pains, and the anxiety I have from not knowing what is causing them is really disrupting my life. I've been afraid that I have blood clots because of the pain in my legs, but the pains are so random, sudden, and occur in so many different parts of my legs/arms that I've been told it's inconsistent with a blood clot. I'm not sure if I am just being paranoid, or if this medication has left me with some sort of anxiety disorder, but I find myself constantly worrying about the pains all over my limbs. Would be great to hear from someone else that they experience the same thing and it went away in time... 

Thanks,
Ash

I was prescribed Omeprazole (40mg per day) nearly a month ago for one month for a duodenal ulcer but stopped taking it a couple of days ago. A few days ago I started to suffer from quite severe joint pain and stiffness mainly in my knees and hips to the point where I was/am finding it difficult to walk. I also started with night sweats, Headaches and just generally feeling unwell. I've decided I'm better just sticking to a non-inflammatory diet and to natural remedies like licorice tea and manuka honey rather than this questionable drug.  I've been prescribed it before but not at such a high dose. I had side effects then but not as bad as this time.  Paul

Hello, was just searching on the net about Omeprazole side effects and thought this was interesting. At first i was getting slight Headaches, which seemed to go away, also after about one month of use, I noticed I was getting spasms, around my testicles, and lower belly region. I take the medication as I had reflux, or peptic ulser. Thankyou

<span style="">I am experiencing itching on my arms, rashes on arms and shoulders, hoarseness, slight dizziness, trouble sleeping and mild Headaches. I was prescribed this medication for treatment of bloating caused by my hiatal hernia but can find no reference to using it for this purpose?</span> <p><span style=" "> </span>

I have been on Omeprazole for about a month for Silent Reflux. It worked for that but I have just been to the doctor because I have been suffering from nausea, abdominal pain, light headedness, Headaches, bloating and the feeling of small explosions in my abdomin which I assume is gas. I get random pains in all different parts of my body that seem to move around then disappear. I generally feel ill and don't want to eat or drink. He has told me to stop taking Omeprazoleiand after 3 days I felt like breakfast this morning. I still have the abdominal pains but hopefully I am getting it out of my system.
