Thanks for your question.
What investigations have been done? Since when are you taking omeprazole?
You are having esophageal inflammation most probably due to reflux of the gastric acid. Hence to assist in the healing of the esophagus and to prevent further complications your doctor prescribed the omeprazole. You need to take it regularly. Also additional investigations are also required such as ultrasound of the abdomen, based on your present complaints, to look for any gallbladder disorder.
Thanks for your reply.
Your present symptoms are then due to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) which may cause symptoms such as a burning sensation in the chest (heartburn), sometimes spreading to the throat, and also a sensation of a lump in the throat. For this continue taking the omeprazole since it is a stronger blocker of acid production and will allow for esophageal tissue to heal.
