Acid Reflux Answer A65143
Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!
I read your question and I understand your concern.
Acid reflux and anxiety are the two main reasons for it.
Complete your course of omeprazole. You can also consult otorhinolaryngologist if you start constitutional symptoms like unexplained fever, weight loss etc.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
