Psychiatrist 's  Response

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Many of your physical symptoms could be anxiety-related. Anxiety can manifest itself with not only psychological symptoms, but with physical symptoms also. If you are having recurrent such symptoms or having difficulty managing your stress, then I would advise you consult a psychiatrist for a detailed psychological assessment and further treatment. There are effective treatment options - in the form of medication or counselling / psychotherapy which will help you overcome your problems.

Wish you all the best.

Hello and thanks for the query
Your problem is more related to stress or anxiety rather the stomach issue. Excess stress is causing gas or discomfort in the stomach. Try to relax your mind by regular exercise or yoga or meditation. Try to change your diet habits like:
1. Take your diet in proper time and regular.
2. Take more high fiber diet like green vegetables and fruits.
3. Take plenty of water.
4. Avoid all fatty, oily and junk food products.

Consult your psychiatrist for proper guidance and treatment. Hope you got your answer.
Best Wishes
