PTSD and other: anxiety disorders can cause GI symptoms. They easily trigger the Fight Flight Freeze response which tends to shut down digestion and anything not needed to sustain life under emergency conditions. You can train yourself to trigger the opposite. See www.relaxationresponse.org and continue to see your doc.
