    It depends what is making your stomach “nervous”  If you mean you get butterflies when facing a stressful task that is normal.

    If you mean you have diarrhoea, you need to talk to your GP. It may be some medications you are taking.

    Nrevous stomach is a quite common complaint for those suffering form IBS.

    I have found that seeking hypnotic therapy can be a useful alternative therapy to assist with calming yor nerves and reducing the effects of “nervous stomach”.

    Buscopan or other anti spasmodic medications that slow the gut motility can be very useful if you find that you are loose or have increased frequency when nervous. Only to be used when very upset in the stomach and not something to use on a daily basis.

    Try to consider alterantives and meditation techniques to help you deal with the stress would be the best way to alleviate these reactions.
