In addition OTC Maalox or Zantac (ranitidine) may be helpful but do not choose meds over diet change. ...Read more

The dr said it was acute gastritis causing acid reflux with inflamed liver. How can gastritis inflame the liver? Dr said that was what happened.
Hard to say: Gastritis does not usually inflame the liver, but it is possible you have liver enzyme abnormalities and may need to be evaluated for hepatitis or gallbladder problems.

I have a few: Thoughts, but you will need to continue to work closely with your gastroenterologist. Sometimes a different (from omeprazol) PPI may be effective, i.e pantoprazole or esomeprazole. Maximal doses of the H2 blocker (ranitidine) and PPI if tolerated (twice daily). Try sulcrafate. Baclofen can reduce the rate of sphincter relaxation; pain modulator such as trazodone; surgery as last resort. ...Read more
