On the Omeprazole web-site it says this medication may interfere with the absorption of Vitamin B12 and bone building. Lack of B12 in the body causes fatigue, depression, anxiety and panic attacks. B12 is needed for proper nerve function. If you are taking Omeprazole and have these symptoms the medicine is probably not letting you absorb B12.
Although the web-site doesn't say what the bone building vitamins or minerals are, lets take a look at what it takes to keep healthy bones. Calcium, magnesium and Vitamin D. They must be taken together and with food to work. If Omeprazole is not letting you absorb them than you will have muscle pain, heart palpitations, and many of the other symptoms most of you have. Althou we all know that calcium is good for our bones, most people dont know that you need magnesium and vitamin D to help you absorb the calcium. All 3 work together and need each other in our body. Another thing that most people dont know is that you need magnesium for proper health and strength of your muscles. Magnesium needs calcium and vitamin D to work in your body. If the Omeprazole is interfering with the absorption of these vitamin and minerals than you will have muscle problems. Remember the heart is one big muscle.
There are many ways to help with your acid reflex problem with out resorting to drugs. First and foremost is lose weight. Especially the belly fat. That extra fat around the middle pushes on that little flap between your esophagus and stomach, which causes it to not close all the way, letting the food come up into your esophagus. Dont over eat. Over eating causes more pressure on that little flap and again it will have a hard time closing. Raise the head of your bed 4 to 8 inches. The acid coming up your esophagus will have to work against gravity which will make it harder for it to come up. Dont eat at least 4 hours before bedtime. This will give your food time to get out of your stomach and into your intestines before you sleep. Stay away from your trigger foods. For every one these foods can be different. For instance, I can eat peaches just fine, which are on the foods to avoid list, but bananas give me terrible heartburn, which are on the safe list. So know your trigger foods and avoid them. Use tums or Rolaids when necessary. And last but not least, consider surgery. Especially those of you who have a small hernia. Talk with your Doctor, or find one you can talk with. There are ways, but it does take a lifestyle change. I know, because I have been there.
