Does anybody else’s anxiety affect their stomach? If I worry too much or get nervous about something my stomach will turn and give me nausea

      Yep! I always leave myself a little extra time before anything big like a date or a job interview so I can use the restroom because I know I’m going to feel like shitting or peeing on myself otherwise 💀

      Yes! I dealt with this for about 10 years! Only recently have I able to manage it. I was diagnosed with gastritis and finally realized it was connected to my anxiety and caffeine drinking. I learned to manage my anxiety and stopped drinking caffeine and it’s mostly gone!

      Yes immediately if I get anxious I get a pain in my stomach but then I also have to poo like bad, no way to control it, and I get very jittery or Shakey

      I gained ibs and ended up throwing up everytime I was anxious. It's still very bad to this day. Everytime anything remotely nerve wracking happens, I get sick

      unfortunately i'm a victim of this. i'm regularly stressed and it puts a lot of pressure on my gut and it's causing problems. slowly finding things to calm and slow me down.

      For a really long time I would throw up when something worried me and it went on for about two years it started out that I needed to be really anxious but after a while anything that I was nervous about I would throw up and it would suck cause if I didn’t eat that day it would hurt so bad to throw up (literally just stomach acid) but I couldn’t stop it. It stopped around the time I got my meds upped

      My job is taking calls all day. Every time the phone rings it makes me go into a panic sadly. I have to go to the restroom lots because it can eat me alive sometimes. It makes me throw up a lot…But I love my job :/

      when i wasn’t managing my anxiety it all piled up and ended up with over a month of constant dehabilitating nausea and never being able to keep anything down. i also experience chest pain, heart palpitations and the likes due to my anxiety. systematic symptoms tell you when you’re anxious when you don’t even know haha.

      It depends how anxious I get. First I sweat, but if it’s more severe my breathing is affected and my chest feels tight. Thankfully, I haven’t had my chest hurt for a good while

      For us this is normal. The vagus nerve runs from your brain to your digestive system. Google it to learn more
