Omeprazole may work better than pepcid. Metamucil helps constipation. For thus, make an appointment with your GP especially with the fatigue and burning muscles. If you have other symptoms such as weight loss, abnormal exam or bloodwork, or a family history of cancer, your GP may either refer you to a gastroenterologist or check for a bacterial infection in the stomach. This can get better!
