    Have you tried indigestion tablets? Milk? Mints?

    I wouldn't worry to much about acid reflux/heartburn it may be GERD, intolerance etc but get it checked out if you dont feel comfortable...... Anxiety, health anxiety will do worse believe me. I have chest pains, stomach pains, lightheadeness, hot flushes every day because of it.

    I myself am battling the anxiety side mine started from having 1 panic attack about 3 months ago and am now on 50mg sertraline/zoloft daily and diazepam 2mg as and when needed. Its not nice try to prevent it.

    go to your GP and get tested for H-Pylori infection....it causes all these symptoms,and can increase Anxiety...I am talking from experience here, I had all these symptoms for nearly 12 months, you can get a Blood, Breath, or stool test done...treatment is with antibiotics and a stomach tablet...if your negative, then just take something for stomach acid...no harm in ruling it out...take care. x

      No, food wont cause H-Pylori, but eating the right food would help the symptoms...of course, you might not have it...mayby you just have gastritis , or gerd, just stay away from food that upsets your stomach, and see how it goes....x

    I empathize, I also suffer from acid reflux and have stomach pains and burning in stomach on a regular basis. It is really scary and I get very shaky as well. I was diagnosed with H.pylori in September and took antibiotics and omeprazole for 1 week. I have been tested since and fortunately don't have it anymore but still have the pains, nausea and general ill feeling and still taking omeprazole.

    I'm only 24 and really fed up of this. I tend to eat healthy and try not to let too much time pass between meals but I'm losing my appetite and will to live. Hope we feel better soon.
