Lump in throat cause by omeprazole?
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!

Esophagus closing up when eating and not letting food or water go down, then having to throw up.
Connie-Did you get a biopsy for eosinophils in your esophagus? Your symptoms sound like Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE). PPIs can relieve the symptoms but do not treat the disease. It is usually genetic and an autoimmune disorder. Awareness of this disorder is causing it to be more frequently diagnosed. I recommend a GI specialist who is familiar with EoE who can give you a proper biopsy and diagnosis if you have not had one. Good luck!

I am type 2 diabetic and take medication for my sugar levels
I have been on omaprazole 20 mg for nearly 3 weeks and could not understand my sugar levels being so high at each reading
I know it has been xmas but my diet has not been much different than usual
I have only just realised that my raised levels started when I began the omaprazole
I am not taking another and hope levels return to normal

Just wanted to tell you after four days on omeprazole 20, I was unable to function, extremely drowsy, can't get enough sleep, one night 11 hours, and still tired. I was a walking zombie which totally stressed me out.

Drowsiness and Prilosec
Husband noticed I was having psychotic episodes on omeprazole. Doctor denied this as a side effect until he got on his computer to prove me wrong. He apologized when he found out he was wrong. I was removed from it and now just drink pickle juice when needed.
JessicaS.  |  August 1, 2014
my husband has been prescribed this medication, but the pills are on 20 mg @, and dosage varies from 1 every other day to 1 per day, depending on the severity of GERD.
suzych  |  December 22, 2013
I have the same experience, after three days of using omeprazole, i became feeling weak alongwith with sleepiness. Not being able to make myself awake, eventhough i have been sleeping for more than 12 hours. I stopped using the medicine, still i have Drowsiness but little reduced
