Maybe: Acid reflux may be causing your anxiety, but in my opinion, it may be the other way around. Your anxiety may have been part of the cause of your acid reflux and dizziness. Alcohol may also be a culprit. The medications you are taking also need to be considered. Consult with your treating physicians to take a thorough look at your entire medical history, and make changes accordingly.
