Maybe a visit to the gastroenterologist should take place to rule out any underlying conditions like h pylori, a hiatal hernia , gastritis or any other problems. There are also a range of ppi available other than omeprazole like lansoprazole , nexus etc you could consider taking those. Also it takes a couple of days or weeks for them to take effect and also for any side effects to pass if any. You must also take them at regular times before food in the morning otherwise they are less effective . The most important thing is to have your condition diagnosed by an expert ..

Also, deep breathing exercises and some meditation maybe with some yoga practices helps a lot with anxiety... Why are people anxious . Basically the human being fears death that's why they are anxious. If you can combat this fear and live for today rather than what if , anxiety because less of an issue... If fear and anxiety is taking over your life then you don't have much of a life , so try to breathe deeply as you will find you are holding your breath or breathing shallowly ...
