You may be: Stress and anxiety can certainly cause other physical ailments such as increasing acid production, leading to possible GERD or ulcers. The acid issue can be treated by avoiding trigger foods that also affect you, and medications. Controlling anxiety however is the main issue causing your problems, so treating that is paramount. See the Dr. for a good exam, evaluation, and treatment.
