Gastroenterologist 's  Response
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist (DM). Prolonged intake of omeprazole may cause small intestinal bacterial overgrowth that may be the reason for bloating. Treatment for which is tablet rifaximin and probiotic which I found very useful in my patients. However I will suggest you to get an endoscopy examination to see whether there is an ulcer or not.
I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. If you have any further query I will be happy to answer that too. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
