Probably: Both anxiety and gastritis can cause gas. Anxiety attacks can lead to accidental swallowing of air from hyperventilation. That air has no where to go but down and can becomes flatulence. Gastritis can cause gas if the cause of the gastritis produces gas. Certain bacteria produce gas as an effect of their normal metabolism. If they are the source of the gastritis then they too can cause flatulence.
