Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 month ago.

severe anxiety can cause pain in the solar plexus area.

inflammation of the stomach from gastritis usually from too much stomach acid can cause pain there when pressed.

are you on medications to help decrease anxiety symptoms?

have you tried stomach acid lowering agents to see if they would help?

then the pains are due to anxiety or sensitivity of the area .

the solar plexus is a sensitive area.

if there is pain when pressed, don't press there.
