Tummy Aches Linked To Adult Anxiety

Tummy Aches Linked To Adult Anxiety

(Cleveland, OH)  --  Heading back to school often causes stress and sometimes tummy troubles for little ones.  Now, a new study links chronic stomach aches in children to anxiety disorders later in life.  Vanderbilt University researchers say about 50-percent of adults who had functional abdominal pain as kids had suffered from an anxiety disorder.  Some also suffered from depression at some point in life.  The study can be found in the journal "Pediatrics."
