Tension about gas could lead to anxiety

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for using healthcare magic. I, Dr Abhishek Kapoor, would help you in this query.

Severe gas could lead to abdominal pain and if patient is tense due to abdominal pain, then chances of getting anxiety is high. May be in your case, you are tense due to physical complaints and that could effect your mental make up. This could lead anxiety and further increase the physical symptoms.

In that case, you can try some antidepressant or benzodiazepine. That would help to control underline anxiety.

If you have more query, you can ask.
