So I have Gerd and my Aunt told me to try Papaya Juice. I did but then it made my stomach really upset (tmi I'm sorry). After I felt really hungry but afraid to eat, now I have this heavy pressure in my chest and lump in my throat. I was feeling so anxious and my thoughts started to run so wild. Now that I understand what causes Gerd I'm a little at ease but I can never shake the feeling. I was feeling so tired of going through this and said a little prayer, right after I stumbled across this article about mindfulness which helped calm me down. Now I'm just venting and wondering if anyone else gets the tight, heavy chest with the lump in the throat.
