I have been on omeprazole 40mg and pravachol 40 mg for five years and couldn't shuffle cards ,could'nt throw a ball overhand,couldn't use my arm to sit up to get out of bed.

I have reluctantly started taking omeprazole for high iron levels associated with chronic
he(a)molysis and so cannot say what will happen. Am looking with interest to see if there are people taking omeprazole for similar reasons, and what if any benefit has been achieved. AWG

Side effect between Omeprazole, Simstatin and Lyrica
I am currently taking Simvastatin 40mg (in evening), Omeprazole (20mg, one time a day-morning) , and start yesterday with Lyrica (75mg two time a day- morning and evening) . Today ,after breakfast I had like strong indigestion feeling under ribs ,start feel week, dizzy , sweaty and finally whole breakfast "out". After vomiting felt very weak, sweat and all calm down. What happened? Just after breakfast when feeling of "stone in stomach" appear,I I have taken Andrew salt, for relieve symptoms of indigestion. What I done wrong and what should I do?

Omeprazole causing swelling in feet and ankles
I was prescribed 20 mg of omeprazole once per day by cardiologist to see if it would help a feeling I had of pressure in middle of my chest - as if swallowed something hard. After 10 days of taking this tablet - my feet and ankles and lower legs became swelled - like puddings. I do suffer with ankle swelling by end of day but once I lay down - as in going to bed- in the morning ankles and feet are normal. But this time that did not happen - no amount of putting feet up - to horizontal position - would reduce swelling. I looked at contra indication leaflet - and it said - uncommon side effects - 1 in thousands - get swelled feet and ankles. However I have stopped the omeprazole and my feet and legs have returned to normal within 3 days. Anybody else had similar experiences. Because these tablets were helping my discomfort in chest - now will be unable to continue with them.

Lump in throat cause by omeprazole?
About a month ago I went to my doctor complaining of a pain in my stomach pain. I put way too much hot sauce on food and suspected an ulcer.
He said he believes it's an ulcer and put me on 40 mg of omeprazole a day.
I no longer feel stomach pain and have quit the hot sauce but for the past couple of weeks I've noticed a lump in my throat feeling that seems to come and go. I feel it right now and it's irritating. Just a few minutes ago I thought maybe it could be a side effect of omeprazole so I googled and see that I'm not alone. I'm gonna lay off the omeprazole for a few days and see what happens.

Did that lump in your throat ever resolve? I have been off of the Prilosec for a month and a half and I still feel it every few day or so. So annoying!
