I am sorry you have been dx with GERD but do try to remember that GERD can be controlled and not everyone has severe sx. The GERD Forum usually draws the people who have the worse case sceanrios as others that are doing fine don't come to a support forum. Please read with an open mind when your in the GERD Forum.
It feels to me like you are dealing with obsessive thoughts of Death and Dying.
I would encourage you to seek out professional help from a therapist or Psychiatrist who specializes in Obsessive thoughts disorder. It sounds like the pain and suffering you are having from these obsessive thoughts are difficult for you to explain. This is not an uncommon condition and is very treatable. As Karen said there are medications and therapies available so please do follow up with your physician.
Welcome to the Depression Forum and know we are here to help you.
