Thanks for your query.

I appreciate your efforts for medical consultation here.

From your information it appears that you have gastric acidity. Acidity problem can lead to above symptoms. Treatment of acidity will resolve these symptoms.

I need following information to help you better:

•     Any history of passing worm in stool

Anticipating your response.

Thanks for the follow up.

As there is no history of change in stool color and worms then your symptoms are due to acid reflux.

Your anxiety may also related to acidity if it started after acid reflux, but if anxiety remain after control of acid reflux, you may need treatment for this, as anxiety may lead to abdominal discomfort and dryness of mouth.

Currently your treatment is in right direction and continue omeprazole.

Wish you good health.
