Brief Answer: Detailed below. Detailed Answer: Hello! Thank you for the query. Yes, such symptoms can appear due to anxiety. Usually along with loose stools and abdominal pain. Such symptoms can be also caused by mild gastrointestinal infection due to some food poisoning. Especially if you have some fever. Low appetite, nausea and anxiety can indicate stomach issue like peptic ulcer. This condition can not be diagnosed with ultrasound and blood work. I suggest you to start with probiotic intake and soft diet. If it wont help in few days, please visit your doctor again and consider gastroscopy. Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions. Regards.
