It's been a while since I have posted since I am trying my darnedest to get back to a normal (ish) life. So all the symptoms I had about 2 months ago are pretty much gone. I have lost about 15 pounds and have restructured my diet. This is where I am at now. I take 1 20 mg Aciphex two times a day and have been on it for a month and change. Here is the problems now, I haven't gotten into my GI to get scoped that is in May, I have seen the ENT about my constant nasal congestion and told me to netti pot and use a spray which I do and it works for about 15 minutes then I am clogged up again. I was wondering after doing some research if the aciphex could be causing me my discomfort now.
I have no problems breathing through my mouth but using my nose...well...its like a straw with a bunch of little holes.
I have a sore throat that was never there before.
I have this constant dull low grade headache usually right above my hair line (I have a full head of hair) and the span of your hand (like your blocking the sun out of your eyes with one hand)
I have this weird sensation in my head its like I am just not working 100%
My vision has changed, it's not blurry nor hazy, its like just a step behind...it almost feels like what my eyes see takes a minute to register.
None of these problems occured when I was on Omeprozole but the side effects of that on me were much worse. Has anyone else experienced any of these with Aciphex? Is it time to get a new PPI? When I get home from travel next week I am going to go see my Primary Care Physician.
