I am trying to get off omeprozole also. I have hiatal hernia but with the medication I have had such severe leg and foot cramps that I thought the bones of my feet would break. Most nights I would be up two to three times and have to stay up each time until the pain would stop. I am trying Zantac and eating very little hoping to keep the blowback reflux from getting over whelming. No one else on the post seems to have had the cramping. The doctor said just eat a banana every once in a while and you will be fine, that did not cut it so I am looking for other solutions.
