I have been taking Prilosec for some time, the 20mg OTC kind. Then last week, I had an endoscopy, and was told I have grade 1 esophagitis. My Prilosec was bumped up to 40mg twice a day.
Since I started it, I have felt progressively worse. My stomach feels like someone has punched me....the pain is constant, and I can't concentrate on much else. It goes right through to my back. I called the doctor, they said to cut back to 40 mg just once a day. I don't want to take it at all.
I am wondering if other people out there have had this experience with Prilosec, or any other side effects.
I have also joint pain all over my body. I am one giant painful neuron.
