Discussions that mention protonix

Back Problems board

Hi everyone,
I have had leg pain for 10 years now. in the last 8 months it is pretty constant, 24/7. 9 months ago I became ill with symptoms of dizzyness, spaciness, full feeling in ears and nose slightly stuffed, eyes are whack they dont foucus right and are slow to react. I get heavy hot/cold sensations that start in the center of my back and radiate out to my shoulders and into my upper arms. All of these probs started a couple days after stoping a month of protonix. The day I stoped the protonix I had dug over a 100' of ditch 5' deep because my help laid out.

I have been out of work for 9 months due to those symptoms. No one can figure it out. This morning, after a lot of research, I found something that very closely matches my leg pain. It is called sciatic nerve impingement. It is normally caused by a sliped disk. Is it possible that all my probs are caused by a sliped disk, maybe putting pressure on spine and CSF fluid causing pressure on ears nose and eyes thus causing dizziness. I would like to tell my doc this but dont want to sound like an idiot. Please tell me what you think.
