Struggling with burning stomach - feedback, please!

Hello, all -

I had an endoscopy last January that showed 'inflamed gastic cardiac mucosa consistent with reflux esophagitis". They found two benign fundic polyps without a whole lot to say about those. I have had HORRIBLE burning stomach pains across the bottom of my rib cage for months. It started last Jan./February and went away after a few months on Omnaeprazole. I had FIVE OR SIX months of relief after stopping the medication, then it started up again in December. I started the meds again and am NOT getting any relief. My questions that I am hoping someone could help with are:

1. Is my diagnosis of esophagitis different from GERD? I don't get the feelings in my chest and throat like with GERD, so I am guessing this is something a little different?

2. Should I ask for another endoscopy since the last one was done a year ago and my problems are continuing?

3. Should I be worried that this is something more serious since the symptoms have went on for THIS LONG and the fact that meds aren't working?

4. Should I ask for another type of medication on the chance that maybe there is another one that will work and that this one just isn't the one?

Thanks in advance. I am in misery and my emotions are starting to really take a toll because of all of the pain (. I do have an appointment with a new doctor next week, but would love to hear from some of those with experience. It's gonna be a long week to wait I'm scared to death this is something horrible that isn't being addressed.
