So question, i was heading out with my wife for dinner and i had a sudden onsaught of anxiety. I was feeling really nervous and started to feel a bit of upset stomach. I took my peppermint pill (normally take it fine, rarely have issues) with water and about 5 minutes later found myself burping and almost had the water come back up. I then noticed that my stomach was bloated and my seat belt was tighter. I have been burping a lot in the last 2 hours, besides the burps, mild pain right below my ribcage in the center, a little bit of burning in my throat and a tiny bit in my stomach and a minor amount of bloating.
So my question, can a sudden anxiety attack cause reflux and burping like this? We ended up skipping our night out and came home where i was able to drink some water and eat a small peanut butter and jelly sandwhich. feeling somewhat ok now.
