    Hey meckam, my anxiety was actually triggered by heart burn symptoms because I was so scared of the feelong and it was the first time I experienced a feeling in my chest. But I do believe that anxiety can Casue ingestion because your brain and your stomach pretty much connect with nerves. That's why you get that nervous feeling in the stomach when you're nervous but baiscally on a daily basis I burp & feel full along with other symptoms and some symptoms trigger my anxiety like discomfort in my chest from the gas. I don't know it's so terrible best thing to do is talk to a professional. Take care.

    Hey meckam. I think I have similar symptoms from my anxiety,only difference is I feel a bubble sensation in my chest on the left side. I've been to my doc march 14 2016. A few tests were ran , all came back good. However, my doc prescribed sleeping pills . Thus for they're all I'm relying on its working. I recommend you see your doc asap ,worry less and always be optimistic even though I know its hard.

    yeah, the gastric side effects of anxiety are some of the most bothersome for me. When I was really anxious I was waking up throwing up stomach acid. Change up your diet a bit to help with symptoms, stay away from acidic fruits and spicy/rich foods for a little while and see if it helps.
