Hi...it is frustrating to determine what is causing most symptoms and anxiety is always mentioned in this day and age.Stress can be a very big part as to someone not feeling well, but sometimes it is an after affect bcuz one stress over not being able to find out what is wrong....and we panic.Drs only see the panic and stop.

U do need to find a way to relax and let the drs see this is not ur main issue......it is possible to have gerd and the chest pains...and breathing issues.

Y can't u eat?....do u feel full?....
...or sleep?...what is keeping u awake? try elevating ur head of the bed.

Do deep breathing exercises......yoga or meditation.
May I ask what meds u r on for the gerd?

Or cache my breath. And I just dont feel the hunger feeling and I feel bloated and it seems when i put my head up in bed it gets worse
