Question: stomach issue

Okay, when I eat within 10 minutes afterwards I get painful stomach cramps this has been happening for a while now. I figured it would go away so I havn't been overly concerned about it, but it obviously hasn't went away.

I was thinking it could be a stomach ulcer..considering they can be brought on by stress. Which I tend to have a lot of I freak out over small insignifigant things I get nervous very esily and I'm prone to panic attcks...I threw up the whole first 2 weeks of school because I was nervous...I'm pretty sure thats not normal but thats besides the point (Doctor was close to perscribing "nervous pills" then I uh...managed to get over it, not quite). But I really want to know is what could be wrong with my stomach?

User avatar Hi Nicky145,
Anxiety, stress, fear, etc. may produce many physical symptoms, ie, chest pain, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, etc. An evaluation to rule out any disorders of the gastrointestinal tract would be advised and if all if identified as normal then practicing some stress relieving techniques would be indicated.
