    Nice enough guy. But seriously, if OMEPRAZOLE was the cure, there would've been a problem a long time ago because my eating habits haven't changed for years. Still sneezing on a regular basis, ears still hurt, still coughing. I now have a CATARACT in my eye due to "solutions" for my cough that *"must"* be stomach related. Omeprazole hasn't made a difference. I guess I'll get a second opinion from a guy who doesn't charge me for surgery when in reality it was a diagnostic test with an endoscope.
