    I was also diagnosed with Grade a oesopghahitis. You get shortness of breath with acid reflux which can make you anxious. But PPI has given me relief from that. You need to visit a gastroenterologist if you're still having symptoms.

    Sounds to me like your diagnosis and not the acidity is ramping up your anxiety to the extent you are having classic anxiety (panic) attacks. Ask your Dr. for something to relieve your anxiety and perhaps discuss this with a therapist. I talk from experience having both a major reflux issue and an anxiety disorder.
