I have a long history of stomach problems. I did not do an endoscopy but from the symptoms and other information I gave my doctor, he suspects gastritis. The gastritis worried me to the point where i developed anxiety and possibly IBS. I was put on omeprazole. Sometimes I would have long remission periods and would stop taking the omeprazole thinking I'm doing better and everything is ok....then I would get a flare up. I had a horrible flare up on April 1st. Went back on the omeprazole and have been better since....until this morning. Woke up feeling kind of anxious and nervous and now I'm nauseous. I just had stomach cramps and passed some soft stool. To be honest I've been dealing with extreme stress lately due to a relationship issue. I did not eat on time over the weekend and skipped a day of taking the omeprazole. Now I feel sick. I just drank some antacid so hoping for relief. My question is, how long does omeprazole take to work? If i stay on it for a solid month or 2 should that cure me? What would you guys recommend for IBS? I read that Buscopan is good.
