My mom is 63 years of age. She is getting pain under her right breastbone followed by acid reflux and burning in her stomach with a sour taste in her mouth. They did an ultrasound, which showed three gallstones. She had her gallbladder removed three months ago. Now, she is getting the same symptoms again and taking Omeprazole twice a day. But, it does not seem to be helping. Everything she eats turns to acid. She went to the ER last week and did a CBC, chest x-ray and ultrasound, which came back normal. Now, she has an appointment with gastroenterologist. She has a history of GERD and asthma. Please let me know your opinion doctor.

Thank you doctor,
I would also like to note that the pain under her breast bone radiates towards her right shoulder blade and her sugar was slightly elevated to 6.5. She is on Omeprazole 20 mg in the morning and 20 mg at night. Sometimes, she will take her medication with food. She takes Advil occasionally. She is also not sure if she got tested for H.pylori. What could this be?
