Hi Law and Welcome to HealingWell!! :)
I have GERD and I've had anxiety, so I understand where you're coming from! I would agree with the others that having a test to a least get a look at your esophagus and stomach to see what's going on sounds like the best route to go! If they find something, you will receive treatment and know what's going on. If they find nothing, then perhaps it's heartburn and that, too can be treated!
I had a barium swallow first - less invasive and no anesthetics necessary. The endoscopy or EGD test was reserved for checking for Barrett's, Cancer and withdrawing a sample from my Gall Bladder at the time - since it was part of my problem, too.
Wishing you all the best!!
Hugs, Teri :)
