I noticed if I'm hungry or haven't eaten in awhile I start to shake, I look like i have Parkinson's, its that bad, I also have an anxiety disorder and I can't tell which one it is. I stopped taking nexium for about a mth and tried prilosec but I started having bad heartburn so I began nexium again, I still was a little shaky while off the nexium but since I've been back on I feel really shaky, I had blood work done and its not diabetes which I feared before, any suggestions

Hey there bayouboy!

I am sorry you are having this effect, for whatever reason. Here are some of the less common, yet more serious effects of Nexium...

chills or shaking
fast heartbeat
fast breathing
upset stomach
extreme tiredness
unusual bruising or bleeding
lack of energy
loss of appetite
pain in the upper right part of the stomach
yellowing of the skin or eyes
flu-like symptoms
hallucinations (seeing things or hearing voices that do not exist)
chest pain
difficulty breathing or swallowing
swelling of the hands, feet, ankles, or lower legs

You will notice that in that list, is SHAKING. I suggest you call your doctor. Be it the Nexium, or something else, you NEED to find out what's going on. It is said that if you have any of the above reactions, to call your doctor. So, please, please do.

Also, keep us posted as to what's going on. I wish I had different news, but I don't. Like I said, be it from the Nexium, or something else, it could be severe, and should be checked out by a doctor soon.

You mentioned you have anxiey as well. I also do. I know I am shaky upon waking up, and sometimes during or after a panic attack, but not all the time.

Definately, get to the doctor, OK?

Ted, I had to edit this post as well.  I see you are trying to be helpful, and I appriciate that, but your answer had nothing to do with Bayouboys question.  He was asking about Nexium, and you were complaining about Prilosec, and all PPI's. 
Also, your post is a duplicate answer, and that is not permitted.
Please feel free to start your own post about Alternative Therapies to GERD if you'd like, and please, a friendly reminder to refrain from multiple posts that are the same.
I appriciate your cooperation, and if you have any questions on this matter, please feel free to email me.
I'd like you to stick around and ask questions, and answer questions, but please review forum rules.  Thank you.
