Anxiety Really Bothers My Stomach
« on: October 24, 2013, 09:28:46 AM »
Anyone else deal with anxiety bothering their stomach? It makes my stomach feel sick, anxious/nervous feeling & can cause me both diarrhea & constipation. Sometimes I feel as if I'm going to throw up! I hate it.  Any ideas on how to alleviate this? I know it comes with the territory, but I'm just so tired of it!

Yeah, I get that. Ive found chewable antacid tablets to be extremely effective in handling it. doesnt always stop it completely, but it makes a very big difference.

Yes I definitely have this problem. When I absolutely have to do something I usually swallow a pepto bismol caplet. I know everyone can't take those but they have been surprisingly helpful to me.

I wouldn't be surprised if that wasn't the most common symptom!  I can't eat until late afternoon/evening everyday because of my nervous stomach!   I also get diarrhea and constipation.  In the morning, if I think about eating it definitely makes me feel like I need to throw up.  I can totally relate...I just drink an Ensure shake in the morning and sometimes for lunch too and then try to eat a good meal before bed.  That way at least I know I'm getting some nutrition. ;D

Omg!!!! And I thought I was the only one to experience this. I can't sit in a doctors office  or go anywhere I have to wait or be in a  social situation where my stomach starts in and I have to use the restroom. I try to calm myself before going but it never works. I'm going to try the pepto or anti acid  like some of you suggested.
