Hi Trish,

The problem is that you are having a bad experience with your acid reflux. You seem exhausted and now have finished into panic attacks.

Please try to be relaxed. Nexium is helping you with acid reflux. However, you need to follow a strict diet (no alcohol, no fries, no chillies, no citrus that can aggravate your situation).

You can use an extra pillow when sleeping. Try to eat at least 4 to 6 hours before going to bed. Drink plenty of natural water.

Get some chamomile tea to be relaxed. When you have "acidic attack", take 1 small (coffee) spoon with baking soda, mixed with 1/3 of water and drink it. It will help relieve the burning sensation.

Apart taking chamomile tea or other stress-fighting tea, talk to your doctor for the best anti-panic drug specifically for you.
