Reflux esophagitis: Is now known to be associated with biochemical problems in the control mechanisms of the autonomic (automatic) nervous system. This is called dysautonomia and will undoubtedly explain your severe loss of weight. The probability is that you are deficient in vitamin B and magnesium, due to the ingestion of sugar and sweeteners.
