What is the treatment for bad gut?

I have been told I have A ( bad gut ). I am 73 yrs old and in good health, but have experienced much pain when I eat.. My stomach will turn into A very hard knot especially after I go to bed, My bowels are working very well and seldom give me problems. I take 20 mg of omeprazole daily and use liquid Carafate 3to4 times daily. In the last two weeks , none of this seems to be working. I do take 5/325 mg of Hydro-codene for pain and have been for the past 22 months. would appreciate your thoughts.
