Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board

Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index

Yesterday when I got home from a stressful day at work I sat down to some brand new MST3K , a fruit tart and some sweet tea as well as a couple of those wasabi seaweed snack things and after about a half an hour I noticed some intense upper back pain and vague nausea. It was pretty warm in my apartment and this plus the nausea and weird back pain caused me to start having a panic attack. I wound up taking a shower because of the heat and pain and felt a little better until I got out and laid down, again because of my back. I started to feel a lump in my throat, which is not uncommon, as I do have digestive issues, but on this occasion I started to gag. For the next 20 minutes I was in the bathroom gagging on and off, in a constant state of panic because my stomach issues have never gotten thus bad. I would go a couple minutes without gagging and then gag a couple if times. I didn't actually get sick. I did have a few of those (pardon the grossness) wet burps. After a while, when the gagging seemed to stop I left my bathroom and sat on the couch, all muscles tight from anxiety and exhausted. It's been 24 hours and I haven't had the problem again. I've eaten 'safe' foods like chicken soup and apples and stuff and haven't felt sick, but I'm still freaking out because it's just never happened to me before.

I've been experiencing a low level of stress and anxiety for a month or so now for various reasons. Does this sound like acid reflux and anxiety?
