Hello all, apologies for bothering everyone with a new thread.
Basically, a month ago, I started feeling some bloating and excessive burping. I went to the GP's office and was diagnosed with excessive tummy acid. I was prescribed 20 mg omeprazole everyday for two weeks. After almost two weeks, I started to feel a bit better, but the doctor said I could extend my meds up to a month. And so I did.
In general, there has been a great improvement in my tummy issues. The bloating has either disappeared or reduced greatly. The burping has drastically reduced as well. I still burp here and there, but I can say that the burping now falls under my "normal" burping range.
Today, I took my last omeprazole and I am scared that I will go back to square one after a few days or weeks.
To be honest, I still feel some tickling and hunger-like sensations after I eat while I was taking my medicine, but not so much as to cause me intense anxiety. The thing that is only keeping me going is the fact that the burping and bloating have greatly reduced (disappeared, if I watch my eating habits).
I've been through this 3 years ago and all my problems went away after 2 weeks of omeprazole. Now I am just scared that I am still feeling some tummy issues even after a month of the same meds.
I've been to three different doctors this month for the same issue and none of them seem to be concerned. They all agree that it is acid and it could be also because of the "bad" food I eat.
Can anybody help me get through tonight?
