      Are you saying that the reflux started after the endoscopy? If so, it'll probably go away on it's own. I'd still talk to a doctor about it though.

      Your questions are off topic, but here's a list of things that may help:

      - Gaviscon Advance

      - Omeprazole

      - Alkaline water

      If you have questions about any of these, I encorage you to create a new discussion.

      Are you sure you're taking omeprazole correctly? You should take it an hour before eating ideally a glass of water.
