Abdominal Pain Joint Pain Help!

Hello all,
I have been experiencing right upper quadrant abdominal pain since mid February. My gallbladder is fine. I had an upper endoscopy which showed duodenitis and a small hiatal hernia. Abdominal CT scan is normal. They said that I should start Protonix, which has helped with my symptoms somewhat.

Just in the last week, now I have started having joint pain. My knees are killing me. My elbows, wrists, all my joints are hurting. My muscles all hurt too.

I've seen so many doctors, I'm exhausted. I'm trying to find some answers and I'm starting to think that I need to diagnose myself.

Can anyone offer any ideas that I can check out?

I am a registered nurse. I haven't worked in over a decade and when I did it was in women's health, so I'm close to clueless about all but the basics here.

I'm getting crushed by the medical bills, I don't want to waste any more time.

Re: Abdominal Pain Joint Pain Help!

Hi, I haven't heard of PROTONIX, causing this sort of side effect. The joint pains could be a different issue altogether, but then again people react in all sorts of ways to all sorts of treatments. I would check with your Dr to see if the two are connected.
I wish you well, Solfelix.
