Not sure: Without knowing what the doctor found it is impossible to know why they prescribed omeprazole. My suggestion is to go back and talk with the doctor, or find a second opinion. This sounds like a potentially significant problem and needs a thorough thoughtful solution. Hope you are better soon. ...Read more

Irritated stomach?: Lots of causes of "hunger", but epigastric burning & pain after meals raises the probability of gastritis & ulcers. Stop any non-prescribed nsaid's (you're taking Motrin & ibuprofen) or aspirin; cut out tobacco & alcohol; trial an acid reducer. Seek emergency care if lightheaded, worsening symptoms, vomiting coffee ground material or passing black stool or blood. Pancreatitis possible? ...Read more

Eating food buffers the stomach acid and provides temporary relief however stomach acid production increases resulting in worsening pain 30 minutes or so after meals. The fact that you take ibuprofen makes this more likely. ...Read more
