Heartburn anxiety ?

Anyone ever get like panic attacks or anxious thoughts due to heart burn or a burning feeling in their chest / that area?

I know thanksgiving just came so I've been eating a lot of crazy food,

But having mild heart burn sometimes freaks me out so I'm currently sitting here anxious as hell overthinking that something is wrong with me or something.

Yes I get that burning sensation more in the middle of my chest. I went to the doctor to get check out. They did test and said that I have GERD, which is more of a chronic acid reflux. The doctor said anxiety can play a big part in having these symptoms. Hope you feel better


Thank you so much !

Yes i feel fine now but the anxiety makes it worse whenever things like that happen.

I hate it but I know overtime people like us will overcome this.
