Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that you are having GERD along with anxiety.
You can go for an Endoscopy and H. pylori test done.

Antacid like Omeprazole 40 mg once a day before meals along with Domperidone 10 mg will be beneficial.
Anxiolytics can be taken under medical supervision only.

Following precautions will be helpful in controlling your symptoms :-
1. Avoid spicy/oily foods.
2. Do not miss a meal.
3. Avoid mental/emotional stress.
4. Avoid smoking/alcohol, if any.
5. Drink lots of pure water daily.
6. Do not self medicate, especially with pain killers and steroids.

I hope that this is helpful to you.
