If you had an ulcer that was bleeding you would be in hospital or dead,so knock that one out of the equation please.As for the rest well i am not a doctor but i too suffer with acid reflux/gerd and anxiety,meds from the doctor do help as does what i eat and what time of day i eat.If you haven't seen a doctor yet i would advise that you do so.

What has helped for me is low-fodmap diet, physical excercising and mindfulness practice.

Mindfullness practice called bodyscan has been very effective. I find that when I get to lower back, it relaxes, and at the same time my tummy relaxes. But I have to take time for it, not rush, and just begin from toes upward.

Hi I have had bleeding ulcers and am still here-I was vommiting blood and poo was black.

After every meal I went sooo tired and then was throjectile vommiting.

I had the gastroscope treatment and am fine now BUT I nver go without food for long periods of time anymore. it was causedby too much IBUPROFEN and not enough food.
