I took Prilosec for 9 months. 50% of the time 20mg, and 50% of the time 40mg OTC. I have severe wrist, and knee pain, which might be unrelated. I regularly take Calcium Citrate, and Magensium supplements. If you're experiencing pain like this, please share it on my health blog wuwei.io. I'm really curious to learn about your story.

Two days ago I was putting cold compresses and hot compresses on to try and dull the pain I was in. I was hit by a drunk driver a few years ago and thought the pain was somehow connected to that. I started Prilosec when I had an attack of GERD due to Metformin.. I had taken it for a short time years ago with success. This time was different. I had pain in the muscle area of my upper arms, my hips and basically all over. I was honestly in misery and knew it was a different kind of pain.
I searched to see if there was anything online as to side effects and was shocked to see there was. Yesterday morning I did not take Prilosec. I could honestly say that I was 60 % better than the day before. Today ... I am pain free !!! This is after weeks of almost unbearable pain. If you are having pain and major aches in places you have never had them before.. try just 2 days off Prilosec. It will speak for itself ... I would rather put the head of my bed up , use a product like Gaviscon , watch what I eat and limit my bending over than ever go thru' that agony again. Thanks you for this forum and Good luck to all those who don't have to suffer this pain.
