Hello, how frequently do you take the Omeprazole? Is it on a daily basis? Ideally you shouldn't be on the medication for this long and should look for some other causes such as checking for H. Pylori in the stomach. You should also consider doing a upper endoscopy to check the current status of your stomach. I would avoid eating anything spicy or acidic(ie. lemons, vinegar).
