I was doing well without medications for 2 days. Today, I experience chest pain etc. I am tired of these cycles of feeling better and then getting worse. I am a human being and like everyone else on earth, I am stressed. I take breaks during work and go for a 15 minute walk. I also meditate for an hour.

What other strategies are you using to conquer stress and ultimately conquer gerd?

Thanks

Deep breathing helps, but i honestly had to go on s low dose of zoloft to deal with the stress if GERD lately. I'm not happy about being on another pill but I was miserable. I also keep a journal, surround myself with humor and try to focus on the positive things in my life.
Diagnosed GERD, no other medical conditions (this one is enough)

When I was dealing with extreme reflux before the surgery and little bit after I used Paxil and Klonopin - miracle drugs for me lol.

It's really hard, we all understand. This support group is a great place to vent and get support.
