Stomach Pain: It would be wise to consult a Gastroenterologist in order to perform an Endoscopy that way you know for sure and get the proper treatment. Omeprazole does not work in everyone. Besides if you have a bacteria known as Helicobacter Pylorii you need a full course of antibiotics since this bacteria is associated with ulcer and stomach cancer
