Anxiety ; Gas: I see from your history that you are being treated by your doc. Keep in mind that anxiety can manifest in many ways and may symptoms such as gas feel much worse. Medicine plus therapy is a good combo. Ask your therapist to teach you stress management techniques such as imagery, clinical hypnosis, etc. The very best to you. Also consider a food sensitivy lab test.
