There are many products over the counter that can ease digestive problems.  Even if you feel the cause of your problems are mental you may still get some relief by employing some of these products.  I think it is common for anxiety to cause discomfort in the head, gut or back.  Then the discomfort causes more anxiety, right?  So try to break the cycle by getting some OTC medications.  As for the anxiety......I read a nice description once of what could be described as a five minute meditative retreat.  At any time in the day when you feel the need and can take a few minutes tell yourself that for that time you are not allowed to worry about anything.  Imagine your worries as a helmet you take off and lay on the couch beside you. Take a breath, feel the gravity holding you to the chair, listen to the sounds in the room, feel the air on your skin.  Simply be a witness to the moment without judging it .
