Not likely: Gastroparesis is rather overused lately in trying to designate stomach functional issues. At a minimum you should have had a gastric emptying study to suggest stomach functional issues. In the presence of anxiety disorder/ depression symptoms may be accompanying the above and may get better once the main condition is controlled. Alternatively meds used to control anxiety may worsen stomach symptom
