My reflux is worse when I am stressed and anxious. Deep breathing seems to help somewhat. Perhaps just realizing that you are stressed or anxious - and that is causing some of your symptoms - will help?!?
Maybe keeping a symptom journal - when you feel what and when it goes away and what is happening around that time - will help. It also is beneficial because then when you go to the doc you can say - on this day at this time this happened. My memory fails me often when I'm in the doctor's office and having stuff written down helps a lot!
