Oh yes, all that nervousness or anxiety does make you feel rotten. What happens to me is I feel all wound up sometimes like I'm going to blow up, and it may go on for weeks, but eventually I a day comes I get so exhausted from it I can barely move. I HATE it. Do you take anything to help you?
I used to take diazipam but take nothing now. I get heart burn but this has now turned into a none stop feeling of nausea. Maybe this nausea goes when I am busy, not thinking about it etc, but I am unsure. My doctors put everything down to anxiety and I'm sick of going and coming out feeling like crap.
I wish they would give me something for it, they have given me counciling, which was a waste of time looking back, I would just go and moan for an hour and the other thing is diazipam, but they make me feel like a junkie when I go and ask for it, even though they only give me 12 2mg per month.
I also do the susan jeffers and louise hay stuff, maybe not enough, but I start doing well then just fall right back down.
I am so low today, don't really see the point in going on if I am always going to feel like this,.
I get the feeling like my stomach is in knots. I describe it as the feeling I used to get when I was young and had to go to the doctors. I take Wellbutrin now for other stuff, but the doc gave me some anti-nausea meds in case it made me feel nauseas. I take 1 every morning after taking my other meds. My stomach pains are a lot better now and less frequent. It could be a side effect of the Wellbutrin helping me, it could be the other meds, or it could just be my mind. Who knows, I guess I will find out when I stop taking the anti-nausea meds at least.
So to answer your question, yes anxiety can make your stomach hurt and give you many other symptoms of just feeling icky.
Just remember and always say to yourself "This too shall pass", Don't ever give up. I know the sickness you feel. I feel it too. It will go away. I learned that if you don't focus on your symthoms, they disappear. Its very hard to do but once you manage to figure it out it works wonders. I hope you feel better soon. I am in a relaps now; and am trying so hard to keep positive. ITs hard but anxiety is managable.
