Could a burning sensation in the stomach also be caused by anxiety and stress?

It could. Psychological stress can cause all kinds of physical symptoms, but before you decide that it is psychological, it is important to rule out any medical problem which could have been brought on by stress or may be causing the symptoms. Get a physical and speak to your physician. If they find no medical causation or think you simply need to learn some stress reduction techniques, find a psychologist.
