Anyone else get bad anxiety when they have stomach issues like gastritis? I suffer from chronic gastritis and I’ve noticed every time it flares up (which causes me weakness of the body, nausea, bloating, stomach ache, burning) it automatically triggers my anxiety. No matter how much I try to remain calm i feel anxious as if my stomach automatically sent signals to my brain that something is wrong. Im super bloated with a feeling of emptiness in my stomach since the morning and it’s been triggering my anxiety really bad. Does this happen to anyone else and any tips on how to calm myself down?

      Actually, the other night I was in my room feeling depressed as usual and then my stomach started hurting like a bi**h and so i started shaking really bad because my anxiety was through the roof

      I’ve been noticing that I’ve been experiencing heart burn like almost non stop for a few weeks. Sometimes I experience it when I start feeling hungry and other times it’s just random. Someone mentioned to me it might be because of stress and anxiety and I didn’t even realize that could be a cause. Idk what to do besides like take heartburn meds when I start feeling it creeping up on me.

      Anytime I have stomach or intestinal issues it causes my anxiety to rise. I studied psychology and I still don't understand why it happens. I do remember when I was taking 1 of my psychology classes for my bachelor's I do remember reading that any type of pain, upset or disruption to our normal day to day lives can trigger it, so maybe that's the answer in a way. Hope this helps some 🤗 🤗 🤗
