I've had ulcerative colitis for 6 years - largely under control. All my life I've had GERD and indigestion issues. Usually mild and I tend to get them in bouts. I don't regularly post on the GERD forum. But I do have 2 questions that maybe the regulars could help me with
1) Can GERD symptoms be linked to anxiety or a period of anxiety in your life
2) Sometimes late at night when I'm in bed when I breathe in I'll hear a sorta bubbling sound in either my throat or lungs - I'm never sure which one. All I know is that its in my chest area. When I breathe out I do not hear this. At first I thought it was mucus. I guess it could be in the chest or throat. It's not really an inconveniance and I only hear it when I'm very quiet. Is this a GERD symptom?
