Yes, unfortunately.: Although there are many causes for gastric (stomach) ulcers, severe acid production and reflux is one of them. (Also, severe acid reflux can cause a bleeding esophagus, or food tube, which can be fatal). Any internal bleeding can cause death, because often the bleeding is masked. If you have acid reflux, talk to a doctor about treatment options (meds, surgery) & get checked right away. Good luck!
