Yes, these two may seem unrelated, but GERD can cause you anxiety. Various conditions that can increase your risk of GERD, including obesity, hiatal hernia, delayed stomach emptying, pregnancy. Certain lifestyle factors may worsen acid reflux

However, Gastroenterologist have found that anxiety seems to increase symptoms associated with GERD, such as heartburn and upper abdominal pain. It’s believed that anxiety may make you more sensitive to pain and other symptoms of GERD.
