I've always struggled with side effects of my PPI:-
Depression (mild) which lifts immediately on stopping
Cold hands and feet which also stops immediately the drug is withdrawn
Constant false hunger sensation
Dizziness (lowered blood pressure)
Lowered haemoglobin, white cells and platelets
I take it to relieve:-
Mid sternal pain
It reduces these symptoms but by no where near enough. I've continued out of fear of being more ill. However, my freezing cold hands and feet has now turned into carpal tunnel (hands and feet tingling, pins and needles, waking with puffy hands and pins and needles) so I think I'm going to have to try reducing or withdrawing again.
Just wondering if it's a side effect anyone else has had?
New stuff: GERD, Recurrent cystitis/Overactive bladder
Lifelong stuff: Food allergies/intolerance, eczema, asthma
