A good Dx idea.: It was wise to have a physical exam to check for organ damage. It's good there is nothing bad yet. Treating your anxiety (therapy w/ or w/o drugs) and the reflux is a good idea to prevent organ damage from the excess acid, etc. So, find a CBT therapist you like who can help and it should all be good. You'll learn skills for life! ...Read more

Esophagitis: Could be multiple things. Consider an endoscopy to look for any abnormality. Would consider a trial of Omeprazole 20 mg twice a day on an empty stomach. If no better at 2-3 weeks, then need to look for other reasons. Hope this helps. ...Read more

But caffeine containing drinks or alcohol can lead to or exacerbate reflux of stomach acid which can irritate the esophagus. Also, some people develop a spasm of the esophagus, essentially a "charley horse", which causes pain. Get it checked by a doctor. ...Read more
