Suffering is getting worse

Hello. I am very new to this discussion board so I'll start with a brief bio on my GERD. I have had this my whole life. I was finally diagnosed with GERD in my early teens. I am 27 now and have noticed that when I have flare ups they are worse. Sometimes I get the dry heaves, get laid up for days with pain, and I can't eat. The doctor insists that I am overly stressed and that's why it's flaring up so bad. He insisted I do not have gallbladder issues and didn't do any tests (I had an upper GI three years ago that came back normal for me).

I'm just not sure what to do. I've tried changing my diet and I feel great mentally but don't feel too hot physically. I just started some mediation hoping it can help. Does anyone have suggestions or opinions? I keep dropping weight because I can't eat much and I'm getting a little concerned about it.
