Hello all! This is my first post here. :)

For about four or five days now, I've had a very strange feeling in my upper abdomen. It feels heavy - I'm not sure if bloated is the right word, since I've never felt like this before. I have little appetite and I'm burping more often than usual. In fact, nearly every time I take a drink of water or juice, I end up burping. I haven't felt like throwing up, but oftentimes I feel like a burp is traveling up from my stomach and then just gives up halfway up to my mouth.

I have generalized anxiety disorder, though 90% of the time I feel absolutely fine. However, this abdominal discomfort episode caused a flare-up in anxiety, and I guess it could be possible that my symptoms are anxiety-related. Anxiety certainly isn't playing fair if it can cause symptoms like these! Apart from the stomach thing, I've also been feeling colder than normal and I have had a few moderate-intensity anxiety attacks, though I'm trying to separate the stomach symptoms from the anxiety symptoms.

I only managed to take in about 800 calories yesterday and today is looking to turn out the same. I hope this doesn't harm me too much.

In any case, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to what I'm going through. I'm thinking it might be a stomach virus of some sort, but I haven't been vomiting - just burping.

Thank you for your time!

  • Hey, I have been facing this same kind of issue. I have some anxiety condition but lately I tried not to think about it anymore, kept myself busy and hopefully I am better now than before, but suddenly today after taking a quick shower, I was about to go out to my friends place, I drank normal temperature water, but just after I finished drinking I felt like very cold water is going through my food pipe and entering my stomach, then I suddenly started having a feeling of vomiting and burping heavily, then I had a burp but this time it was very weird, I had a burp which was very cold in nature, it left like asif I am breathing in and out cold air instead of normal tempertaure. I dont know how this is related to anything but sometimes these things worry me a bit. Though I'm sure its just a temporary thing and will overcome of it soon :)
