Watch it: I suspect this is a combination of just being under a lot of stress, and perhaps functional bowel syndrome. I'd urge you to get screened for gluten enteropathy if this has not happened. There are a couple of others, but perhaps the best advice is to observe, since an untreatable disease is unlikely and a treatable disease will announce itself by getting worse, or self-cure.

Here is one more ide: Anxiety is a chronic disease for which there is no quick fix . So I will give you a simple recipe which will help you provided you follow it religiously and without fail. The best medicine for you is a daily exercise which will be simple& practical : Take daily walks, preferably first thing in the morning. If you can devote 30 minutes for walking briskly, it will do wonders for you. Send report in
