    Its probably GERD. you can ask dr to prescribe carafate ir will help with burning also. Dexilant ir Zantac may work better than omeprazole. Hope this helps.

      If I may, try very hard to avoid caffeine soda/coffee, cigars/cigarettes, alcohol, any any raw veggies that will certainly make it flair up. Like asparagus, spinach, etc. Take care, hope for the best.

    My recommendation would be to take it seriously and educate yourself on lifestyle changes to avoid developing GERD or other things. I made the mistake of only partially adjusting cause my doctor didn't think it was a big deal. a year later and I know have a bunch of GI issues that are yet to be diagnosed but I am pretty sure I got here because over the year my digestive system weakened due to too much foods I don't tolerate well and reduced ability to digest due to being on PPIs (lower stomach acid). I was quite fit and didn't eat any bad junk food but ate a lot of nuts, dark chocolate, dairy and whole grains. Many of which I know know aren't good for a weak digestive system.
