    Anxious is a feeling of fear and your whole body is over reacting to every thiught. Its a state of panic. Illness is different. You are sick you know you are sick but the anxiety drags your mind to dying, nit breathing...etc..illness a solutely triggers anxiety illnesses and diagnosis is what triggers me.the digestive system is very snsitive to stress and emotiins in general. We are animals keep that in mind, yes humans but the body when in fight or flight or high anxiety levels is set up to fight so no one would be hungry at this point. But when it occurs a lot the a cids and balance in the gut is set off balance and then comes illness and stomach issues. Most if not all very anxious people have digestive issues, and if they dont they will.
