Hello. Thank you for coming to JustAnswer with your question, and welcome.

Some of the most common physical symptoms of anxiety relate to the gastrointestinal tract---of which intestinal cramping and pain, and diarrhea are extremely common. Irritable bowel syndrome in many cases is thought to be primarily triggered by emotional states more than physical problems.

If you have had tests that are negative for problems, you may have irritable bowel syndrome. This can commonly cause cramping, pain, bloating, alterations in bowel movements and even stomach complaints.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
