How do you all deal with the constant low grade nausea and gas you get with anxiety??? It drive me nuts and just makes me more anxious than I already am.

I'm not an MD but it sounds like you might have some sort of gastric reflux possibly caused by food or medication. Have you talked to your doc about this?

just got into site. sorry about messing up first post. I am no doctor, but ive experienced these symptoms due to anxiety before. I can drink hot sauce by the bottle with zero complications but when i get anxiety i get stomach upset also. Believe me most people get an upset stomach, gas, nausea when in an anxious state. Im sure you dont have any reflux. Just take a few deep breaths and try and calm yourself. Just remember we all deal with stress triggers. Mine is the doctors and dentist.

Thanks, I've away for a while so I just read this. I am working on learning to relax with yoga and it seems to be helping. The major thing I need to do is keep busy. If I sit around and brood it just gets impossible. I have general anxiety so I can't point my finger at any one thing that triggers it so I deal in generalities...
