As regulars to this forum will know, I have Raynaud's and Crohns disease; recently been put on Omeprazole for a burning sensation in my upper abdomen. I was reluctant to take these capsules as they lower the acid in your stomach, which meansa if you eat anything remotely dodgy, you have no acid to fight the germs. Well - I think I have just had food poisoning; it started on Sunday, the burning sensation was agony, and I didnt get relief from it until I had been sick a few tomes; then I got diarrhoea, was shivering and sweating at the same time; since then, I have had a painful, bloated stomach, dont know if it is the food poisoning working its way down. Can anyone advise please? Have any of you had this kind of thing happen if you are on Omeprazole? The GP also put me on Metoclopramide last week to help with my feeling of anti-sickness.
