Thanks for writing in.
If your blood reports are normal, then anxiety could be a possible cause of your symptoms. Anxiety can lead to several of the symptoms and increase acidity as well.
You can reduce anxiety by the following measures:
a. Do regular breathing exercises, walking and yoga
b. Have a healthy and nutritious diet. Avoid excessive tea/coffee, alcohol or smoking. Also, totally avoid any gutka that you may be having
c. Try talking to a friend about the issues you face.
d. Drink atleast 3-4 litres of water daily.

However, I would like to know if you have any other symptoms like weight loss, diarrhoea or anything else? Also, has a TSH level been done for you.

As far as the acidity is concerned, the following things will help:
a. Have small meals every 3-4 hours
b. Avoid smoking and alcohol
c. Dont have a heavy and a late dinner
d. Talk to your physician about drugs like omeprazole. It will bring a lot of relief in your symptoms.
Hope this helps
