Yes it can: Would avoid using Tom's, is increase calcium can also increased symptoms of heartburn., Also be careful of the type of foods you eat that may increase gastric acidity. You may want to work with the integrative medicine doctor, who can look at your anxiety, heartburn, heart rate issues. S/he can create a plan for you to work at reducing your current symptoms faster by also integrating mind/body methods like meditation and lifestyle management.

140 is too: High for reflux and too high for normal and needs more work up
