Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you.

Epigastric pain that worsens on empty stomach may indicate peptic ulcer disease. Though H.pylori which is negative is the most common cause, there are other causes as well.
I would suggest another course of PPI ( for about 4 weeks).
She should avoid painkiller medications.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
