Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor and discuss if you may be depressed. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, exercise may help. Start with low intensity exercise such as walking and gradually increase the intensity at tolerated.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

See a GI doctor: If you have had a ct scan you should already be in the process of a diagnostic evaluation, and therefore the best person to answer these questions would be the physician seeing you.

How to tell if my stomach/heartburn issues are due to GERD or am I blowing them out of proportion?

How to tell if my stomach/heartburn issues are due to GERD or am I blowing them out of proportion?

GERD: You are not blowing it out of proportion. It's very important to investigate heartburn, stomach pains, because left untreated, ongoing acid can cause changes in the normal cells lining the gastrointestinal tract. Sometimes, a trial of medicine is used to see if symptoms resolve, but you might benefit from an upper endoscopy done by a gastroenterologist. See your provider. ...Read more

I've read gerd/heartburn is often caused by low stomach acid and not too much. Is this true or more of a holistic/natural type point of view?

Not true: GERD is caused by contents in the stomach coming up through the esophagus, which in turn has a poorly understood cause. We think it is probably due to too many random openings of the valve. Certain medications can also cause the valve to open, as can stress, obesity, & problems with the stomach emptying to name a few. Hope this helps! ...Read more
