Acid Reflux / GERD Message Board


Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


I heard that stress/anxiety can make acid reflux worse, why is that? How much does it affect it? Could stress be equated to eating bad foods like chocolate or orange juice? Meaning that generally when someone eats bad foods, their reflux flares up as opposed to eating/drinking ok foods like apples or water.

When a person is under stress the stomach produces more acid, thus contributing to more reflux problems.Personally ,when I am feeling anxious or stressed I sometimes eat foods that aren't necessarily good for me in excess, like chocolate. Chocolate and orange juice are both on the list of foods to avoid if you have reflux.
