nicknatpaty - I DO think that my acid reflux started when my life had some very troubling and stressful situations come about, including the death of my parents.
I think anxiety and stress have played a role in this acid stomach of mine. The problem is trying to turn off the stress. I have never talked to my doctor about taking anti-stress or antidepressant drugs. I wanted to try to control my emotions on my own.
My reflux does seem worse when I am anxious about certain events and this includes SUBCONSCIOUS stress.
The body needs an outlet. Some people get hives or shingles. Some people get skin rashes. Some have diahrrea. Some people grind their teeth or lose their hair. It only makes sense that nerves could trigger reflux.
I think you are pretty savvy about your condition.
