Last year I had a pretty severe stomach acid problem. I had so much stomach acid that I ended up with 28 ulcers in my duodenum.
My Dr told me that it may have been Zollinger ellison syndrone. A horrible form of  pancreatic cancer that produces alot on stomach acid. (thank god that wasn't the case.) test show that it wasn't true.
I lost 28 lbs as a result.
my dr gave me 2x 20mg pariet to take daily. I still have this stomach acid problem. it comes and goes but in general I always have some kind of stomach discomfort.
i exercise , I don't eat foods that cause gastric distress.
no chocolate, caffiene, tomatoes, citrus fruit, peppers...etc
I exercise 2-4 times a week  and eat every 3-4 hours to keep my stomach from eating itself with stomach acid.
I now also have GERD, i pretty well wake up after 5 hours of sleep from heartburn.
BTW I think this may be stress related...but can stress affect somebody that much??
Does anybody have a similar history and possible suggestions???

Hi nonstop

I agree stress/anxiety can make you think you are going crazy. I think when I'm really stressed I can make things worse than they really are. The doctors say I need to relax, but I worry about everything there is all the time.

I have tried breathing exercises that seem to help. I also walk for exercise and I think talking to others with the same problem helps.

   Posted 5/26/2006 3:15 PM (GMT -6) could have a bacterial infection or have the hiatal hernia. In my case, I have used brochodillators since 86 and therefore this is probably a contributing factor in my GERD. Congrats on weight loss, super. There is a book called the Relaxation Response by Dr. Benson. There are also tapes and some people swear by the new age music like Spectrum Suite or Music for Airports. Frankly, whatever you can do to relax. The important thing is to empty your mind of the clutter. If you start thinking, gently tug yourself back in blankness.
Good luck
