Yes I get this and I always put it down to my IBS. But I was explaining it to my counsellor and she was saying it was a very common symptom of anxiety. I guess anxiety and IBS go together with me. Mine's particularly bad below my ribs to my belly button and I feel like I'm wearing an iron corset! I'm so uncomfortable and I guess it's muscle tension too as I can't seem to bend easily. I get all bloated and my clothes get really tight and restricting. I can't get comfortable especially if I sit down.

I get this a lot of the time, and often find that my stomach getting like this makes my anxiety much worse (or is it a chicken and egg situation, who knows). Can be very uncomfortable though I find doing a bit of exercise helps, or maybe just helps me ignore it/forget about it.
