Symptoms of stress. • nausea • bloating • gas, or being gaseous • feeling like there is a lump or knot in your stomach • stomach discomfort or distress • an uncomfortable fullness in your stomach • feeling like you have butterflies in your stomach • a tightness in your stomach • an “anxiety” stomach • an excess of acidity • a “heavy” stomach • an uneasiness in your stomach • acid reflux • vomiting • diarrhea • loose stool • constipation • Irritable Bowel Syndrome •Death
To name a few.
Stomach distress may also cause erratic and sharp pains to radiate throughout the chest, neck, throat, and shoulder blades.
A person may have one, two, or all of the symptoms. They can come and go erratically, or persist indefinitely. All are common when anxiety is present.
Stress is a terrible thing. I think people need to calm down in life. Enjoy life. Don't worry about the little things. Cast your cares & anxieties on God like the Good Book says. ~Julia~

Man....stress is straight from the devil! I was dealing with a lot of these symptoms last year with all the stress I was going thru. I am getting better now. Thank God!
I agree, it was about this time last year when I started dealing with stress and anxiety myself from the job situation I was in...I know that prayer, and support from wonderful people (like you guys!), is what got me through. Stress can be hard to get a handle on, and it still makes me cringe to think about it, but I feel so much more like myself now.
