Gas. Lots of it.

I've been fairly stressed and anxious these past weeks, to the (seeming) point where I'm incredibly queasy most mornings just going to school. The problem is this queasiness(is that a word?) seems to be more then the typical stuff, causing me to have an excessive amount of gas. Problem is just now in the safety of my own houme (thank fuck) one of my farts turned out not to be gas D:
it wasnt solid either D:D:D:
I'm really not even that stressed or anxious, so I'm wondering if it's even possible for the two to be related, or is it just something I ate/have? I'm Lactose intolerant (self diagnosed) but my dairy intake has seen no changes.

I'd love to be the one disappoint you when I don't fall down

    Has your diet in general seen any changes recently?

    Not especially. I've switched to some knockoffs to save money but its essentially pretty typical. I'm also even more sure that its not stress related (although im sure its not helping) as i'm just sitting around trying to relax and still having the problem.

    Well, in my experience, I haven't had gas as a result of stress or a change in my surroundings. It's usually limited strictly to a dietary change. For instance, more recently I noticed an increase in discomfort due to gas - I started working at an office that offered free soda, and I'd been consuming more of that than usual. Cutting it out of my diet killed the problem.

    Lactose intolerant and drinking dairy makes you farty and ploopy

    you can work through it though

    In mid July I came back from vacation to a shitstorm at work. I found I vomted every day before work, and felt sick on the rare day I didn't.

    Turns out I had stress induced GERD, got some pills, and it was ok, but not fixed. Once I got shit figured out on the home front, (new apartment etc..) and got my schedule at work verified it was all set. The pills really helped, be it medicinal or psychological, but I notice you said, "trying to calm down, relaxing". Even if you don't feel stressed, the body can still overreact. Check out some antiacid prescriptions, or try and nail down the major stresses in life. Kill either and profit.

    apart from the liquid terrors I get much the same thing

    whenever an exam or anything is coming up I get cramps and get a bit, um, gassy

    only thing I could think of that would cause it is that I eat less and drink more (coffee, energy drinks etc.) when I'm studying or freaking out

    not saying that this is whats causing it for you, but I've certainly found that it helps to actually eat more while stressing, even if the stress is making you feel all cramped and not hungry

    its probably the cheap knockoffs. see if theres anything in them substantially different from the brand name. you may be having a reaction to that.

    from the timing id say its something you eat or drink for dinner.

    quickest way to rule any of this out is to change your diet and see if it helps.

    You could keep a food diary. They can be very surprising.

    Do you drink much alcohol? I've found that tearing up my intestines with that shit can come back to haunt me.

    I actively keep away from dairy, that's not a problem. Alcohol isnt either. I'll ditch the knockoffs for a week and see if that fixes anything.
    Could vitamins be to blame? I've been taking a multivitamin recently, but only every other day because I can never remember.

    Thanks for the help so far.
