I'm no expert but I think there must be some connection.  I got GERD during an extremely stressful period in my life where I experienced high anxiety.  Prior to this I had no history of GI illness.  I exercise regularly, eat a balanced diet, am petite and not overweight.  Now I have GERD.  I'm hoping it is temporary and after my stress and anxiety is under control, that it will go away.

Anxiety can cause pain in the chest or a discomfort. Not sure if its acid reflux, but it will feel similar. Acid reflux doesn't go away. If the pain in your chest goes away with the attack, then you know its not acid reflux.
