Hi, my stomach is really tender not painful just tender due to stomach reflux. I'm on lanzparazol 30mg a day plus gaviscon. Any advice on anything else I can be doing. I suffer with health anxiety so that makes it worse x

    I don't take stomach meds as they don't work for me. I only take gaviscon extra when I'm very bad, otherwise I use dgl licorice. I also occasionally use slippery elm and marshmallow root powder, which line stomach and soothe it. U can drink licorice tea too.

    Have u raised top of your bed? This is a big help!

    Anxiety is bad for reflux sufferers. I improved lots when I started lexapro ( anxiety drug) 10 mg per day. I hate taking pharmaceuticals but it saved me.

    All the best
