There is a strong link between both conditions.
Is clinically proven that people suffering from panic/anxiety disorder have a two to four-fold risk of developing acid reflux disease.
Also, being anxious adds to the pain (experiencing the pain as more intensive) due to acid reflux.
Antidepressants and anti anxiety drugs can trigger acid reflux, too.
