It does sound like you may have gastritis. This can be caused by many things. If your symptoms are persisting you may want to request being tested for a bacteria called H. Pylori which can cause gastritis and ulcers.
Also, if your symptoms are not improving on the omeprazole you may want to consider seeing a GI specialist for a possible endoscopy to look directly at the lining of the stomach and upper intestine for signs of anything that may be going on.
