Does anyone else get really bad stomach problems during stressful times (finals, breakups, etc)?
I get really bad acid reflux, a burning stomach sensations, fatigue, indigestion, and gas. I have taken omeprazole which helps a bit, but I am looking for a better solution.

    My stomach acid is so strong that it tarnished a steel sink. So I feel you on when it gets really bad. I just tend to throw up when I'm too anxious

    For my gerd I take Dexalant. It’s a prescription med that’s a bit stronger than omeprazole. I also take famoditine, Carafate, and for nausea I take ondancetron and reglan. Hope you can talk to a gastroenterologist about your stomach soon. I was on omeprazole for years but my dose kept going up and my symptoms kept getting worse. So the Dexalant helps a lot.

    I have Crohn’s but my biggest, #1 stomach issues trigger is any type of anxiety - good and bad excitement. I’ll immediately get nauseous and/or make more frequent trips to the restroom. I’ve always been this way, not sure how to turn it off😅

    When my mom passed a few years ago, I had went through a few stress induced anxiety attacks because I was going through a lot of change in my life. My chest got tight and I felt lift I couldn't breathe.
