In brief: Several things

first, results from endo including H Pylori presence/absence would be helpful.
Bloating below stomach isn't stomach. Then, omeprazole is weak in two regards 1) it is the weakest of the proton pump inhibitors and 2) proton pump inhibitors work for about 20 hrs not 24, taking a PPI twice a day increases its effectiveness on GERD but not bloating.
