It is normal to feel stomach churn in anxiety issue,

Hello

Yes it could

So many with anxiety suffer from irritable bowel , digestive problems and so on

It can be due to the stomach muscles been so tense so we do not digest food as we should causing stomach problems

Have you seen your Doctor ?

If not or even if you have ask what they can do to help

Try and eat slowly and chew your food well , also as I suffer with my stomach if I am feeling tense I watch the TV as I am eating this helps to relax me x

I have lost so much weight as I have lost my appetite and it's depressing me more as I am losing it x

It is okay and try to feel good!!

Stay around positive people! and feel positive!

One advice,

If you dont have health anxiety then googling about your symptoms and understanding how the mind body reacts to anxiety helps so much.

Try to learn why it happens and read anxiety success stories and try to watch youtube video,

those helps so much, because there are so many who have been through this and their experience can help you!!

Not that it will be the instant solution for your problem but that will definitely help!!

Try this and let me know what you will feel about that!!

Yeah already looking up how anxiety affects the body what it releases and researching every last bit of it even doing anxiety tests online and it does say I have a large amount of anxiety so this is most likely what is causing all of my problems I lso have been watching funny videos of people on sertraline to brighten up my mood and reading anxiety successful stories :-)

That is good way to start your healing procees, keep it up!!!

and hope you are not having health anxiety while googling!! :D
