Go see your doctor: Perhaps your Omeprazole dose isn't large enough. There are other options besides omeprazole. Or maybe you have something else besides peptic ulcer disease (pud). So go see your family doctor & ask about undergoing an esophagogastroduodenoscopy (egd) to look inside your stomach. If PUD is present, you might have an h pylori infection. Of course, you can undergo breath test even before egd.
