    It could be anxiety. I had stomach problems for a long time with my Anxiety Disorder until my GP prescribed Lansoprazole 30mg  one capsule a day

    On the other hand it could be a tummy bug

    The things is we do get aches and complaints and illnesses. We have to accept that, as human beings, whether we have AD or not. Few of us get through life without getting sick now and then

    So whatever triggered it there's no point adding fear to it. It does sound like AD induced. Lots of nice warm drinks to calm your tummy, avoid milk/dairy produce and a nice hot water bottle on the tummy soothes it. As does rubbing your belly in circular motions

    It's not going to kill you so don't worry, okay?

      Stress causes more stomach acid. I've been down that road, Kirsty. I even used to wake up in the night with stomach pains

      If it's a tummy bug it will  settle down in a few days

      If it's stress induced you need to stop frighting yourself by thinking it's something bad.  Serious illnesses are rare

      Considering you felt anxious and panicky it's like as not due to anxiety. You need to calm down and tell yourself you are going to "nurse " your tummy until it settles down, not tell yourself you have some life-threatening illness.

      Nothing bad is going to happen to you, Kirsty. Had you, say, appendicitis or gastritis you'd know about it, believe you me! Having stomach ache and feeling sick and tired does not mean you are deathly ill. It means you have tummy ache and feel sick

      Try a nice soak in the bath, a mug of hot tea and stop, stop worrying
