Hi all. Whilst I have always been susceptible to reflux, in the past it has always cleared up within 24-48 hours. However since February I have had it continuously and it does not seem to want to abate. I've seen a gastroenterologist and after an endoscopy I've been diagnosed with oesophagitis and a sliding hiatus hernia - nothing major. I'm currently sorting out diet/lifestyle (alcohol was easier to give up than coffee!) - and have been prescribed omeprazole. My symptoms have not yet improved - basically I have a permanent pain behind my breastbone and constantly feel hungry and bloated at the same time! My question is - does it take a while for the omeprazole to kick in? I've been taking it for c12 days now (started on 40mg but doc said I should reduce to 20 which I have). Thanks
