I heard drinking too much coffee is bad for the stomach, because it adds too much to gastric acid.?

It can be.

Gastric
Yes, there's a change in the acid, but for most people the change is not enough to make a noticable difference. And if there is a difference noticed, choose a different beverage.

Why does anxiety seem to produce more gastric acid in stomach?

Anxiety

Head-brain
It stimulates more adrenaline production in your brain which stimulates the vagus nieces which in turn stimulates the stomach to produce more acid.

I burped, then choked on stomach acid. Why did it come back up?

Reflux

Abdomen
you have what is called gastro esophageal reflux disease GERD for short you might have hiatal hernia which will make the stomach slide up in your chest and allow the acid to burn the lining of the food tube it can be worst if you gained weight and specific food and tight cloth and laying flat and eating late before you go to bed will make the reflux worst you need to see your doctor

What's the difference between mucus and stomach (gastric) acid?

2 different things

Gastric
Mucus is a clear secretion, made by a variety of glandular-type cells in the nose, sinuses, gut; typically not acidic in nature. Stomach acid is just that; made by specialized cells in the stomach. The stomach lining also secretes mucus, and has a layer for protecting stomach lining cells from acid, enzymes, and food stuff. Break in the mucus layer can lead to ulcers, not usually excess acid.

I have silent reflux does this mean I have low stomach acid . What foods should I avoid?

See below

Reflux
Low pH = High acid content. So, reflux usually means high acid content, meaning the pH is low. Avoid acidic foods such as tomatoes, oranges, caffeine, alcohol, to name a few. http://www.webmd.com/heartburn-gerd/features/top-10-heartburn-foods

I'm confused. Does food buffer stomach acid, or does the stomach make more acid in response to food?

Gastric acid

Nutrition
Actually both. Food will buffer acid in the stomach, but eating will stimulate more acid secretion.

Dr. Yash K. Khanna answered:

Do B complex supplements need gastric acid to be absorbed in the body or passes the stomach, without any kind of digesting?

NEED FOR B12

Upset_stomach
Vitamin B12 needs intrinsic factor which is produced by Parietal Cells in your stomach which also produces Hydrochloric Acid Two steps are required for body to absorp Vit B12 from food.First Hydrocloric Acid in stomach separates Vit B12 from protein to which B12 is attached in food. After that B12 combines with protein produced in stomach called Intrinsic Factor and is absorped by the body
