In brief: Curious question...
Many GI symptoms have their origins in the central nervous system.
I knew a prof of GI at johns hopkins, where did most training, who became a brilliant psychiatrist, after realizing the brain/mind was often the source of sx. Evolutionarily, i believe the epigastrium ('solar plexus') was the original brain. What r u intense about? Suspect the answer is north of the equator. See gp, if can find one.
