From this study (3 years ago):
Serious side effects didn't happen until I had been on omeprazole over 4 months. (I use synthroid & estrogen patch & occasional flexeril, all of which I have used for years.) I did some research and found other individuals who had similar side effects with omeprazole. I quit that day which was 11 days after serious side effects started(toe/foot/leg/arm/hand tingling/random tingling & burning sensation/enhanced anxiety.) Side effects got worse & I began getting muscle twitches all over. It's been over 8 weeks since I quit & I still have tingling in toes/foot & in areas of legs, flanks, arms, hands,upper back. Muscle twitches reduced but still happen randomly. My regular Dr thought it was radiculopathy from existing disk issues (past car accidents). Had MRI. Saw neurologist who did neuro exam, said he couldn't see any problems; said 99% sure not MS for many reasons, said it comes & goes, effects both sides, MRI(cervical & lumbar)looked okay etc. Both Drs. didn't think it was the omeprazole since these types of reactions are "rare". (Of course, somebody has them.) Neuro says it's idiopathic parathesia. He stopped short of blaming stress. I have read comments from other omeprazole users with the exact same side effects which are still occuring weeks & months later. God I hope this stops soon.
