    Digestion gets very messed up. Probably a good idea to eat small meals and make very healthy choices. Anxiety effects 70% of the body so so many symptoms can arise.

      Oh I guess you can attribute that to anxiety..mine too..feels like something sit on my chest while I'm sleeping for hours and when I wake up its a tender soreness feeling..I get it everyday..that's why it makes me worried cause I don't feel anxiouso but the sore feeling is still there..in the day it's not really there but I guess maybe I think about it a lot so it feels like it's there and I have the tendency to keep curling my body to check if it's there..but usually it's not..but I feel like it's there. Everyday I wake up with the sore feeling I tend to think about my heart a lot. .thinking If there's something wrong with my heart. .I get back aches and pain throughout the day..and sometimes neck and shoulders tension too..I don't know how to get rid of this

    Yes the tension of muscles around the stomach can push acid up,has been reported.also the stress can interfere with proper digestion.A trip to doc can give you better advice on treatment to ease this

    Hmmm, maybe get tested to see if you have any food allergies...including gluten. I have IBS and Acid Reflux, there are quite a few foods I have to avoid otherwise I feel sick for a couple days. Before I started eating better I was getting sick most mornings, throwing up and then not eating much through the day as a result. Eating and drinking healthier help a lot with these kinds of symptoms.

    Try taking Zantac for two weeks. I'm taking them now. It's for acid reflux.
