head/neck injury 17 days ago. post anterior cervical disc fusion december 2012. History of migraines.
From this study (9 months ago):
I have been in pain and have suffered for over 7 years with muscle pain with cramping, aching, burning, stinging, pins/needles, weakness, numbness and paralysis, etc. I live with fatigue and utter exhaustion everyday and hate having to take medicine period, but have no choice in the matter. I know that this is something serious..I can feel it. I just have to get the Doctors, to find it...and fix whatever it is that is wrong.
I am trying to find what is the root cause of it all, then I might be able to find some relief.."Lord Willing". I have always been a driven individual and love life. I am a fighter and a survivor, so I will continue forward..until I find a way to the answer.
The pain level stays around 5 or 6 everyday and can be overwhelming at times, but I pray and I find relief for a moment..from The Lord. Grateful to be alive. Just want life to be normal again and to be able, to spend my time with my family that I have missed so much of.

Hi. I have been taking omepramizole on and off for 6 months and have been suffering from some very strange symptoms. I have been waking up nearly every night, 2 or more times with numb hand or hands. I have not linked it to the medication but now I am begining to wonder! I took one last night whilst drinking alcohol and I woke 6 times with numb fingers or hands. Could this be an adverse side effect?
Sue on Jul, 6, 2013:
I am a woman aged 66 and have been taking Omeprazole 10mg for about 15 months. I started to get numb and tingling feeling feet several months ago that at night feel like they are burning hot.
I have just stopped taking the Omeprazole but am worried that (assuming it's a side effect of the pills)the numbness may not go away. I think in a minor way it has also affected my fingers. Has anyone felt an improvement after stopping this medication? My doctor did tell me it can take a couple of months for the nerve pathways to heal and knit back together.
