May be: Occasional acid reflux can occure due to eating hot/spicy foods, excessive use of coffee , alcohol or Aspirin like drugs. Try a short course of antacids like pepcid/ zantac (ranitidine) or prilosec. But you need to take care of your stressors also as that can cause more health problems. How about devoting some time to exercise outdoors daily, which can provide relaxation and improve yr stress related low moods.
