Suggest medicine for nausea and upper abdominal discomfort

I have had nausea for a week and am now having upper abdominal discomfort. The discomfort increases with pressure/ palpation. It decreases with lying down or extending my back. I have not had much of an appetite either. Any suggestions? I take 40 mg daily of omeprazole for reflux and have taken Pepto Bismal a couple of times when the nausea was worse.

Hello,

The symptoms are typical of acid reflux or GERD.

Continue omeprazole, avoid spicy foods.

If symptoms persist better to consult a gastroenterologist and plan for an endoscopy.

In severe cases, surgical correction may be required.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
