Mines was super bad at the beginning of this year but I've been drinking Chamomile tea and it actually has helped alot. But I've slacked off on drinking it. So I started again

Me and I get it badly!!!!!!!!!!! I also have IBS so it affects me both ways.

All the doctors do us say to take meds, it’s insane!

My mom used to get it a lot & ate papaya tablets for it, natural so that's a good thing. Maybe give them a try! Love, peace, light, joy & hugs!

I feel panicky as we speak. My mind telling me it's my heart. But I know it's my anxiety

Yes! I’ve had such bad acid reflux for a a couple of months before my sisters wedding which I was so anxious about. I went to my doctor and she put me on nexium and zantac. It’s stopped the acid reflux. You can get both over the counter. Nexium is 40mg once in the morning and Zantac 150mg? In the evening. I’m on it until my stress levels decrease even though the bottles only say to take it for 2 weeks.

I need to get something for it because I hate this.

Did you doctor say it was related to anxiety? Did they think it would go away when anxiety lowers? Curious as I’m having issues for last couple weeks and seems to be getting worse.

My doctor said stress can definitely cause acid reflux. I went to see her about a month ago because she wanted to see if I could be weaned off of all the acid reflux medicine but since I've been having so much anxiety and depression lately she said to keep taking it. I think it will get better as I get less anxious. I've been taking Nexium 20mg for years though for acid reflux. Problems with acid reflux run in my family (so does anxiety).
