A 31-year-old female asked:
Disclaimer

Started taking Prilosec for gerd. Soon after I started experiencing this weird chest pain, headaches, and a pounding chest ( no HR elevation). Ran out and symptoms lessened.Took It again and they came back. Is it in my head or a reaction to Prilosec?

It might be,,,: It appears that Prilosec can have as an adverse effect, severe abdominal pain. This is due to increased intestinal gas. There can also be nausea and vomiting. Headaches are also a side effect. It might be a good idea to talk to your doctor about how much you should take since your symptoms lessened when you ran out and this would help to avoid serious side effects. Good luck.
