after chewing gum last night which i know i probbly shouldnt do, i got slight stomach pains, slight nausea and i started to eventually feel shaky. not like a visible shaking but on the inside. i have been having bad anxiety all week so i would not be surprised if it is just anxiety but can acid reflux cause shakiness as well?

    This is the first time I am posting. I recently was diagnosed with Silent Reflux.

    I thought you would be interested in the following study I found on WebMD, "Chewing Gum May Prevent Heartburn"

    I have a very dry throat. Chewing gum or sucking lozenges allows me to talk much more easily. It makes a huge positive difference for me.

    I don't know about acid reflux leading to shakiness. Could it be a medicine? I think knowledge is power and the more we know about how we can an illness, the better we have a handle and the less anxious we become.

    I know, the more I learn how I can proactively and positively handle my Silent Reflux, the less anxious I am. I don't know if this helps you.

    I have felt "shaky" on the inside mostly in my upper chest in the past. I now believe it was acid irritating my esophagus, but at the time I always thought I was getting sick or a sinus infection. Then it would pass and I would feel better. All my pH tests are "normal," but I tested positive for pepsin acid in my saliva, which comes up in aerosol form, and I have many symptoms indicative of silent reflux/LPR. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to treat it as doctors are not very helpful and just want to prescribe PPIs, which didn't help symptoms above the neck, i.e., ears, sore throat.

      @mel79101 as I wrote above, I am new to this.

      Two books are helping me Dr. Jonathan Aviv's, The Acid Watcher Book and Dr. Jamie Koufman's Acid Reflux Diet.

      It's given me a good handle, but it's a process.

      I eat/drink Alkaline.

      I use Alkaline water to wash any pepsin down

      *I chew gum all the time, if I didn't do that, my voice would croak.

      I've had LPR since early this year and a sore throat on and off for most of the time. Gargling with salt water or baking soda and water helps if you do it several times per day.
