Adrenalin: When people are anxious, the brain initiates a "fight or flight" response--as though one is being physically threatened. Hormones in the bloodstream (and direct nervous system connections) cause many physical changes associated with survival. One is to try to empty the stomach.

Can you be more...: ...specific? By "upset stomach" do you mean nausea, fullness, achiness, indigestion, stabbing pain, etc? And where in your abdomen do you localize your distress please?
