GERD since 4 to 5 months

Dear Doctor,
I have these conditions since September 2012.
I used to belch during the day, since 2008 year. No acidity, it was only gas. I was normal.
Then in September 2012 one of my friend had angioplasty done (he used to have heart burn and at the end it lead to heart issue) and I was scared since I also have belching issue and then after 1 or 2 days I felt like burning sensation near the chest (heart burn). I consulted the hospital. They did tests for h-Pylori and ECG and found nothing. Then they did endoscopy (in my stomach) for my GERD. Doctors, after endoscopy, said it is gastritis (and no ulcers etc).  But strangely my mouth walls became sore and jaw pain. When ever I feel more pain under my chest/heart burn kind of thing i have this mouth walls soreness and severe jaw pain both sides.  Omeprozole is not at all working for my GERD. If I take antacid like Gaviscon it works. And i feel better. But after i stop the Gaviscon antacid again it comes back. Even if I jog in the morning my throat pains. When i asked the doctor about jaw pain they said it is related to dental issue. I consulted dentist he found nothing and said, there may be wisdom tooth. But in my opinion it (mouth walls soreness and jaw pain) is related to GERD.  
Could you please advise me (if you have noticed these in other patients) what is this disease about?
What should I do, since Omeprazole is not working for me even after taking 1 month (morning one and evening one tablet , half an hr before food).
For the jaw pain, if it is wisome tooth, will it be seen if it get X-ray done in my jaw part?

Thanks and Regards
hkvy
