  • Oh, it definitely can! Stress can do some crazy stuff to your body, and gastro-intestinal issues are only one of them!

  • It sure can! I've got a terrible nervous stomach and if I"m nervous or stressed or upset about things..........Bang....I have stomach problems!

  • Yes it can. And besides, stress can make you more vulnerable to whatever is going around. Try to eliminate some things that are stressful that you can stop at this stressful time, you can pick them up again later.

  • Stress can most certainly cause one to have the trots. My dad was one of the worst cases I've ever seen of that malady.
