'Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Many people, including pregnant women, suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by GERD

Been taking omeprazole this week and been suffering with headaches, stomach pains and awful gas

Been taking omeprazole this week and been suffering with headaches, stomach pains and awful gas 💨☢️! After a quick Google search these are quite common side effects. Does anyone know if there is an alternative? Also been feeling incredibly full and bloated and so so uncomfortable. And it feels like the food I ate over 3 hours ago is still sitting at the bottom of my osophagus. I have tried to eat a more clean diet but I'm starting to think the extra fruit and vegetables are doing me no favors. I'm think the acid reflux is worth putting up with compared to this horrible full bloated feeling. 😢😢😢

There are a few different options. Let your doctor know and they'll be able to prescribe you something different.

This is what I'm hoping for. Seeing my GP nxt week.

I had the same problem when I had my second problem with ulcers. Seemed like Prilosec didn't work. Got switched to protonix and worked great. Little different from your situation, but letting your GP know is definitely a must.

I used to have omeprazole to stop my stomach pains and trapped wind 😐.

I too feel like food lies at the bottom of the esophagus for hours and hours. Omeprazole gave me wind, i now have Esomeprazole but try not to take it every day. It gives me a bit less wind than the omeprazole for some reason. Still getting gerd with healthier diet, going to stick with it. Maybe it takes more time

I can literally feel the gas clunking around by abdomen! It's soooooper uncomfortable.

I had the same issue headache stomach pains and nausea I stopped taking them and now given lansoprazole but haven't tried them yet.

It's horrible isn't it? Gas from the throat (at times) right the way down the tract to the gut! Doesnt matter how much you belch, more gas appears and i dont know where it gets generated from. I read somewhere that when food hangs around the stomach taking too long to be digested, gases from bacteria build up. So then i wonder if we have too little acid due to the meds and if it hinders the break down of food? Lady at the health shop wanted me to buy digestive enzymes. She said they will help the food breakdown and move on from the stomach quicker. At £12.50 a bottle i decided to wait and see!

I just read online that digestive enzymes might help but I'm going to ask my GP about it first. Seems abit much to spend if they don't work!

Lansoprazole works for me x.

Lansoprozole also worked better for me, but I still must be careful to limit how much I eat or drink.
