  • Hi Acid reflux is a common side effect of stress and anxiety - I used to get it really bad but a change in diet and environment has really helped. Speak to your GP that is essential, but regular exercise and an understanding of the effects of the food you are eating helps greatly too. Try keeping a food diary and mark off at the end of each day how you have been- it works and its useful info for your GP and if you see a Dietician you have a basis for them to work from. All the best :)

  • Taken every day I have found that Peppermint Oil capsules from any health food shop work really well - they break up the wind so the burping decreases and the burning feeling of reflux does become less.

  • Cause of my Gerd and burping continuously is Anxiety and depression as doctor diagnosed it . I am having SSRI , which helps me lot .
