In brief: Sorry

you are struggling with anxiety.
Therapy can do wonders for this. An unfortunate side effect can be increased acid production in the stomach. Over the counter H2 blockers like ranitidine (Zantac) can be helpful in relieving symptoms. Dietary changes including no chocolate, peppermint, tomato sauce, spicy foods, tobacco, and alcohol are key. Adding a probiotic may help too. See a Dr soon
