    Per Drugs.com, both of these meds can cause a SEVERE reaction of bone pain and tenderness.  The information says to seek medical attention if you are experiencing these side effects.


    I am not a doctor, but it sounds as though you might have a problem taking proton pump inhibitors.  I cannot take any proton pump inhibitor because I break out in hives and my throat swells shut. Please contact your doctor and/or pharmacist for their advice.


    I was going to suggest Zantac, but I see you have trouble with it also. BTW, prilosec is another proton pump inhibitor. 


    I really think you need to see your doctor and talk to him/her about the options you may have.
