As I've learned, anxiety and stress can affect every part of your body. I have had nausea, vertigo, lightheadedness, racing heart, skipped beats, shakiness, diarrhea, hot flashes, insomnia, loss of appetite, thoughts of dying, strange head feelings, body aches and pains, tingling, tightness in the throat, etc.
It is possible that anxiety/stress has affected your stomach and now it needs time to heal. You're probably watching your diet. Make sure you get plenty of sleep, water, and you are doing something to relax that mind and body of yours.
I am so sorry for the loss of your mom. I think beginning a journal and writing about your mom and dad will help. Tears will no doubt come, but that's part of the grieving process. I'm adding you to my prayer list. Feel better soon, my friend.
