Nausea and bloated stomach. Could it be due to stress?

Hi I have been under a lot of stress lately and I keep getting a nauseous feeling in my stomach along with bloating.
I haven't really been ill, just had a lot on with work (run my own business) and lately when i eat i just feel sick. i kind of feel hungry, but then just ill. I often find that i skip meals just because i don't get time to eat. Is stress causing these tummy issues?
My digestion is fine and stools are normal. I am female 28 year old.

Dear friend.

Thanks for sharing your concern.

Stress leads to production of some chemicals like catecholamines,more than required in our body.They can very well cause gastric disturbances.

Also excessive production of acids leads to hyperacidity and damages gastric mucosa.therefore please take food in time and adequate rest.

Also remember physical and mental well being is very important for good health.

Hope it helps.


Take care.
