Anxiety That Causes Indigestion.?
Can anxiety really affect digestion? Every time I have a problem and see something that I don’t want, my stomach is getting mules, my appetite is also decreasing, I want my heart to eat, but after taking food, maybe I can only take two mouthfuls. I also read and looked for psychomatric symptoms. Please explain, thank you.

Impact, not only heartburn and decreased appetite, you can also experience nausea, stomach cramps, bloating, burning, tightness, diarrhea, constipation, and many other complaints.
