I think you may be right. I have had daily GERD and LPR symptoms for two years, despite being on PPI's. I have tried 5 different meds over the 2 years, and still have only partial symptom relief. And yet, when I went on a 1 week vacation to Florida several months ago, I had absolutely no GERD or LPR symptoms!! This was truely remarkable, because I ate and drank stuff that I normally avoid at home (coffee, chocolate, tomato sauce, etc). Two days after I came home, all the symptoms were back again.
I have a lot of stress in my life. I was wondering if you know of a book or CD that one could read or listen to, to help achieve the proper state of mind that would hopefully lead to a reduction in symptoms.
