Just a shot in the dark, Jaynee. IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) is tied in with anxiety for most people & can be quite painful. It can include gas, diarrhea, constipation, burping, nausea & a host of dyspesia problems. There's a calcium-channel blocker called pinaverium bromide (Dicetel®) marketed in Canada for IBS & some other ills like crohn's disease & colitis.

Here's a blurb oabout Dicetel:
" used for the symptomatic treatment of abdominal pain, bowel disturbances and intestinal discomfort related to irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). IBS is caused by a hypersensitivity of nerves in the bowels. This hypersensitivity causes the bowels to contract abnormally. Irritable bowel syndrome causes pain, bloatedness, diarrhea and constipation."

You could ask your doctor about it, or if there's any other similar calcium-channel blockers that would do the same thing. I know it worked wonders for one son who had severe IBS.
