Stress and anxiety can make you feel like you have knots in your belly. In fact, if this continues to happen you can develop digestive problems like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Stomach problems are among the most common symptoms of stress and anxiety. Researchers have identified a powerful connection between the gut and brain.
