In brief: Maybe its not reflux

Lack of response to acid suppression ; antacids raises several possibilities: 1) you have excessive acid production; 2) your reflux is of non-acid material; 3) your esophagus is severely inflamed, infected, or ulcerated; 4) you have heightened esophageal sensitivity; 5) your dose of Omeprazole may be too low; 6) your present symptoms are not reflux-related.
Suggest evaluation for diagnosis please.
