"Nervous stomach" isn't a medical term that I'm familiar with; sounds like the sort of self-diagnosing term that lay people use, like "stomach flu" (there's no such thing as a stomach flu). But I bet the symptoms of a "nervous stomach" are the same as IBS. Most, if not all, people with IBS will notice an increase in their symptoms if they are stressed, nervous, or depressed. I'm not normally a stressed preson, but I definitely noticed bowel problems for a couple of days after I got very upset about running over a puppy.
