In brief: Nerves
This term if used in the typical way means being nervous about doing some stressfull thing as singing before an audience, speaking in public etc.
Is caused by stress hormones produced by the adrenal gland. This hormone in large amounts gets us ready for the "flight or fight" reaction. Small amounts produces the reaction asked about. Just in case you mean stomach problems you should see your md.

Breath in slowly ; deeply through your nostrils.
Fill your lungs with air (but not to the point of discomfort). Hold for a count of five then slowly begin to exhale through an open mouth. Repeat at least 12 times, longer if you need to.
