What could this be?

Hi, I've been experiencing stress and anxiety for the past month. I've pretty much lost my appetite but have still been trying to eat a little. I lost 7 pounds within this month and have been experiencing gas pains every night and every morning. What can be the cause of this? I wake up every morning feeling so lightheaded and weak.

It sounds like you've answered your own question.

You've been experiencing stress and anxiety for the past month which has caused you to lose your appetite, lose weight, feel weak and light headed. It's also likely you might be a bit constipated from not eating very much and intestinal gas may be trapped inbetween stool which explains the gas pains.

If you can figure out how to deal with the stress and anxiety this whole chain of poor eating might improve with a cessation of all these other symptoms.
