Stick to super bland foods low in acid, try to avoid stuff like tomorrow sauce, coffee (🥲 esp on an empty stomach) etc. Empty stomachs also make nausea worse, unfortunately.
Frequent small meals can help - eating too much can make reflux feel worse, and having an empty stomach churning definitely will make it worse! The omeprazole will work but it takes 2 weeks I think to reach it’s max effect. If that isn’t helping, talk to the doctor who prescribed it, people sometimes take really high doses for a short time when the pain is bad. Also something like liquid Gaviscon can help so much, it’s over the counter. I think it works better than Tums. I hope you feel better soon! I have so many GI problems from years of poor treatment of my body, it sucks!
