Can anxiety cause so much gas which makes me light headed and deazy?

Dear toma,

Hello and welcome.  I am Kitt.

Regarding your question, if your gas is painful the pain could cause you to feel lightheaded.

I know that from experience with colon preps for endoscopies but that is just my experience.

I have a lot of gas when anxious. I burp (or need to burp and can't) constantly. Therefore I get really bloated and the pressure can build up so badly that I can feel extremely nauseated. I've felt light-headed and dizzy, too, but not too often at the same time.

Anxiety can cause both problems, but I'd go to a gastroenterologist or at least a family doctor to make sure nothing else is wrong.

In the meantime you can try antacids that contain simethicone or even simethicone tablets. They may or may not help, but they're probably worth a try.
