COVID-19 and online school has created extra stress and anxiety for teens in pain. Both anxiety and stress can be triggers for pain, and many adolescents are experiencing an increase in abdominal pain and gastrointestinal issues. Teens who have pain with eating may even begin to avoid food as an attempt to escape these symptoms. Pain­ related eating can lead to weight loss and development of a food restrictive eating problem. The mind-gut connection is a powerful one…but we know how it works!
