Acid reflux worse with prilosec?

Hi, I have had acid reflux for years. Have taken multiple meds (prilosec, prevacid, protonix, etc.) and the all seem to work for awhile then i need to switch. Actually don't have much heartburn but bloating, burping, gassy, etc. Now have a very sour taste in mouth all the time. Am on 20 mg prilosec and have stepped it up to 2 a day. seems like it's getting worse. definitely not getting better. feel sick alot. have a doctor's appt. in a few weeks but my insurance won't kick in till Sept. Does any 1 have any suggestions to help this? I have already quit smoking, and used to drink sodas all day but have stopped that. Am drinking V8 splash and water. This is miserable as I have a phobia of vomiting and anxiety disorder and this is adding to it. Thanks Appreciate it.

If you do not find relief with appropriate medications and lifestyle modifications, the next step is reevaluation with 24 hours pH monitoring test.
