    Is this acid reflux?

    Hi guys,
    I was diagnosed a few months back with anxiety, and I used to get really bad chest and abdominal pains, like cramping, and burning sensation behind the ribs. Today....it returned! It always returns after drinking, but then I think it may be anxiety, but I'm sure its not. It feels like my chest has got loads of stuff in it, and slight tickling feeling. I also get butterflies or strange feelings in my stomach, when I think about anything off putting or if someone jumps out on me etc.

    I also find it hard to breathe, and eating makes it much worse. Always feel less anxious when my stomach is empty.

    Feels like I wanna take out loads of crap from behind my ribs, and be clean in there!

    Sound like acid reflux or GERD?

    I have GERD. I find when I eat the anxious feelings begin. Read somewhere, the reflux irritates the Vagus nerve. Do you get heart palpations or PVC's?

    Heart palpitations. Heart gets really fast constantly. Then goes quite slow sometimes. Normally fast when stomach is full etc. Do you get the same? Would you say its GERD/acid reflux?

    Yes when I overeat, my heart rate goes up also. I have tried to learn to eat small meals so I wont be uncomfortable. This has been going on since the summer has started. My symptoms are causing me to have anxiety attacks. I am going to go to a Psychologist this week to help me through this.

    I feel as though I have misdiagnosed for anxiety, and that is has something to do with GERD/Acid reflux. I wanna get a full internal check. Anyway of getting this for the stomach etc? Also what have you been taking for acid reflux? Any meds?

    I was taking Nexium for my reflux but after a while I felt it stopped working and actually made me feel worst. Lots more gas, belching, chest pain. So I stopped taking it. I started to take aloe vera pills, and digestive enzymes and take Gaviscon after meals and before going to bed. So far I feel good, I am not totally symptom free but I feel better now than when I was on Nexium.

    I would suggest you go to a GI specialist and get a few test to diagnose your problem. I believe once you get a definite diagnosis your anxiety level will decrease tremendously.

    Good luck
