Re: What the hell is wrong with me?
I wouldn't call myself an expert, but as far as reflux causing anxiety, for me that is a big, loud "YES!" I was diagnosed about two months ago and when reflux symptoms strike I feel like I can't swallow properly and there is a golf ball stuck in my throat. I begin to panic thinking I won't be able to breathe next.
I know I'm not the only one who has gone through this, so I would say that anxiety is a normal reaction. Especially if you are new to GERD.
